    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?

    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.
