    You mean drive shaft, right? A used in is probably fine if it’s the right one in good condition. That maybe difficult to determine unless you know how to properly measure for driveshafts or find your exact truck in the yard.

    This sounds like an odd scenario. You don’t use 4wd often, I’m assuming. You’d probably be pretty aware if it came off driving down the road. Then again...

    If you are rolling stock height front shafts are a dime a dozen and an easy google search. Try finding a k5 rear shaft at a reasonable price.
