Custom Driveshafts, who\'s best?

I am finally in the market for a rear custom driveshaft.. was wondering who comes highly recommended.. looking for good customer service.. and support.. excellent knowledge.. and of course the kicker.. cheap.. but i know.. you get what you pay for.. thats why i am not making one myself..
going to be a cv shaft.. d20 transfer case to a d60 rear.. looking to also upgrade the ujoints.. to atleast 1330 series..

sixstates gets my vote.

When are you going to send my dana 44 open 4.56 carrier?

If you do go with 1330 joints let me know what the spicer part number for the 1330 yolk is for the Dana 20.

Like the others said before me, Tom Wood at Six States does an excellent job at building
custom driveshafts. I had a rear CV driveshaft of his in my CJ7 and it was bullproof!

Tom Woods is no longer with Six States. He has his own company as was noted by another poster.

Re: Custom Driveshafts, who\'s best?

Tom Wood, absolutely no question about it. He built shafts for me when he worked for Six States, and the quality was unmatched by anyone else I have seen. I haven't dealt with him since he has gone out on his own, but with HIS name on the line I would imagine that quality and craftsmanship are priority number one. I will be needing new shafts in a couple months and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else unless I saw some undisputable proof that I was going to get a better driveshaft.

Re: Custom Driveshafts, who\'s best?

i spoke with Tom on the phone about a month ago for info on ordering my shaft. He is a top notch guy and the customer service was amazing. I will be buying mine from him within a week or 2.
