Not toyota factory, but for future reference, High Angle Driveline has some good quality ujoints for both the double cardan (CV) and single sides. I've had great luck with their stuff:

Scratched it too

It's not like she is a cover model or anything.

Enough people gave me grief about my spicer double cardan, it has now been replaced with all Toyota thanks to Gary. 1999 First Gen Double Cab rear drive shaft shortened to fit the front of my 80.

Two covers in one calendar year. I think you have set a record that shall stand many years, Mr. 'Root.

Does it hold up better to abuse and water crossings? My double cardan front shaft (using Spicer parts) keeps needing to be rebuilt.

How do I already know the Toyota one is better?

Because it had 100,000 miles on it already and only the pinion u-joint can be replaced (part number 04371-60070). works like a champ with no vibrations.
