    Why new? Propshafts can be remanufactured or even scratch built.

    The front propshaft has got like cv joints on both ends,not the normal universels.The cv experts tell me that everyone can repair it but only last about 2 months.They suggest only the origanal from john williams!

    Rubbish - The CV joint replacement on the propshaft is an easy fix. Will last same length as the current ones. Good couple of years at least.

    Heavy duty CV's are available for the Jeep props.

    Recent experiments with double-UJ shafts didn't work out that well.

    Ask Bulli: he tried at one stage and there were a bunch of comebacks if I recall.
