    I went searching for a good deal for a rag joint for my truck and during my search I seen on a few forums where they changed them on g bodys and s10s to a jeep steering shaft and it was direct replacement. But I was wondering if we have that option for our trucks?

    I remembered seeing that too and thought it would be a great upgrade at some point, and another thing to look for at the junk yards.
    Heres a link from FSC

    The only problem with that is they're between 200-350. and i dont cheap out on my truck but to me thats high for just a steering shaft

    I should look for some of them, I know they probably got some in the junkyard.
