It looks like a stucco finish. Looks really good! I like that shade of blue

All fixed up It figures the only non Toyota part on the truck had to fail. New Spicer joints, rebuilt the double cardan, new slip joint, re-tubed, lengthened 1/2", and balanced. I think that is all you can do to a drive shaft.

The exhaust held up really well. I like how the polished stainless kept everything looking new.

There isn't an OEM solution readily available for a double cardan. I just need to find a first gen double cab in a junkyard, throw a few hundred at it, and it would be all Toyota.

Is that what Christo uses in his DC front shaft? I never actually gave it a thought until now.
