Got my Arizona Drive shaft! Haven't installed it yet.
Looks awesome! Can you weigh both when you're installing?

Kirk, did you ever get the speed ratings of the driveshafts? And is there a significant difference in the strength of the steel driveshaft vs. the aluminum driveshaft?
I'll check on this tomorrow. Sorry for the delay.
Okay I have some specs here.
The Aluminum Shaft is 2X stronger than the stock shaft in relation to torsion. Abuse wise, you're looking 3-4 times stronger. The speed rating on the aluminum shaft is up to 5600 RPM before you start feeling the vibration.
The Steel Shaft is 3-4 times stronger than stock in relation to torsion. The abuse strength is 4-5 times stronger than stock. The speed rating on the steel shaft is 5000 RPM.
If you have a SCAB and you want the stronger of the two, Steel is the best choice. Unfortunately, they couldn't make a steel shaft for the SCREW. With the torsion rating, your truck would only be able to top out approx 70 mph with steel shaft.
