Question Shaft shop recommendation

Anybody recommend a driveline shop in tha Dallas area?
I jacked up the rear yoke on the rear shaft of my burb and can't find a shaft in any of the j/y around.
Thanks!

Not sure exactly where you are, but I've used Ft. Worth Gear and Axle for some of that kind of stuff.

Drivetrain in Mesquite.

Driveshaft King in Dallas - if you like to pay big $$$. They are good, but high.

The last time I was at the junk yards on Loop 12, there were lots of rear yokes, still in good shape.

Thanks Ryan

I had just about decided to go the "the King" but wasn't sure.
I scowered Awesome and P-N-Pull the other day and found one shaft that had a huge dent. Just not that many 4x4 burbs in the yards.
This is mainily a street vehicle/tow rig that sees a little light action so I need it to be vibration free more than anything.
Have you dealt with the shop in Mesquite? Are they good and fair?
Thanks!
Doc

FYI, if your truck has a one piece rear ds, they are the same length as an S10 Blazer. My brother twisted his at Gilmer last year and we found one at a friend's, friend's junk yard. It was out of a late model s10 Blazer. Can't remember if it was a 4 door Blazer or not though.

I have used DT in Mesquite before, they do quality work for a decent price.

There is another shop, Inland Truck Parts in Denton, right on the loop. They are a little more pricey, but very good guys to deal with.

WOW! I wouldn't think an S-10 shaft would be half the length of the burb! good to know!
Next ?? is 2wd or 4wd? I'll take my tape measure

It would be a 2wd 4 door s10 Blazer. I can't remember if the front yokes have the same spline or not. I do know the shaft is the same diameter and length.

Drivetrain of mesquite has made me 3 going on 4 different shafts..(never had a problem, just changed things up) and many other people also use them. Expert Offroad in plano, where i help out, uses them also.

Inland truck parts has made shafts for me before for a couple of different vehicles. Good work. The king is not cheap, but does good work.
