    Use this driveshaft to upgrade your 3.5 inch steel driveshaft into a heavy duty 5 inch aluminum piece.

Before purchasing confirm your vehicle has clearance for the additional tube diameter. 

    This driveshaft is heavy duty from end to end. We use the Spicer cold forged sealed u-joint - the best and strongest 1480 u-joint available.  The Aluminum tubing is 5 inch OD Kaiser premium aluminum seamless material that is 1/8 inch thick -- rated for over 7,000 ft/lbs of torque!  It will handle even the heaviest towing loads. We offer a lifetime warranty on our welds and a 1 year unlimited mile warranty on all parts.

    The driveshaft comes fully assembled with the transfer case slip yoke, balanced and ready to bolt in.  Installation is as simple as sliding in the transfer case yoke and bolting up the straps.  If you need new straps for the rear end yoke, select that option below.  

    You won't be disappointed with your 5 inch aluminum driveshaft.  Time and again customers are impressed at how well made the driveshaft is. - no matter if is a daily driver, over the road towing rig, or a pulling truck, aluminum is the way to go.

    This aluminum upgrade driveshaft is great for trucks that tow heavy trailers or for those who want the best in driveshaft strength.  If you don't need the upgrade then consider our OEM replacement driveshaft: Chevy or GMC. The OEM driveshaft duplicates OEM strength and durability with premium sealed u-joints and precision balancing which matches OEM specifications.
