Finding a replacement?
I already called one salvage yard, with no luck.
But he couldn't even really find my truck in his database.
So I am going to call around to some others.

But I just figure someone on here may know too:
What would be the swap (donor) trucks that the
driveshafts would be the same:
Mine is a 2001 quad cab w/5.9 motor

Ok, got a hold of a good salvage yard.
I can only use the 2000-2003 Ext./Quad cab Dakota Only 5.9
But I got another strike out with them. They didn't have one either.

^ Yup search your truck on that site. Most places will ship if you pay. I Used to work at a scrape yard and we had our whole inventory on that for people to view.

I have one. What is the length of yours?

Edit: Scratch that. I see you have a quad cab. The length may be the same though. What is your total length?

Here is another link. Also pretty sure you can use an extended cab 4X4 short bed silverado in the 99-06 vintage. Some of those came with a one piece 4.5" aluminum shaft. You would have to use an old sytle yoke without the built in damper though.

Might want to have it rebuilt...

A good driveshaft repair shop should replace the tube and balance it in a heartbeat.

I googled "driveshaft repair" IL and got several hits. I had one done years ago near Rockford and it was done very well. Not sure where you are but it's an option.

broken drive shafts are no joke, I used to help my buddy with his dirt late model and we broke a drive shaft one night and it tore the shit out of the floor of the car. You may want to look into having one built for you.

Earl: Hmm, no, I don't have a gambling problem, I'm winning, and winning is not a problem. That's like saying Michael Jordan has a basketball problem, or Def Leppard has an awesomeness problem. So why don't y'all pour some sugar on that?

I just wanna know what you did to break it? Cause I know a few guys pitting a LOT of power through stock driveshafts and not snapping em.
