    Neat. I've never seen that on an OBS before. How did you get that?

    It’s off the 3500 I got the 4l80 and transfer case from I had it shortened to fit

    if anyone has any advice on what angles I should shoot for with the two piece I’m all ears

    Is it a CV on the top of the last driveshaft? From what I've read (I'm dealing with pinion angle too currently) a CV driveshaft should be directly in line with the pinion. If its just a regular U joint on top then it'll be the same as a regular one, pinion parallel to whatever's at the other end of the driveshaft.

    That's just what I've read though, I'm not an expert by any stretch.

    It’s just a regular u joint so right now I’m only 1 degree off with the short shaft being 8 degrees and the pinion at 9

    I’ve read through the options for 2 piece shafts in that link I posted. I think option 3 might work with making the two operating angles for the two rearmost u joints match the front U joint operating angle.
    I’m still not sure I’m reading it right might just have to pick one and see if I have any vibration issues
    I know I can’t make the front shaft 0 degrees and I can’t point the pinion negative to counter the angles as that would be too much operating angle

    hopefully I’ll figure it out
