so where

So where do I get them? Do they limit range of motion? Are they stronger? How difficult is it to get the end piece that welds to the driveshaft? etc etc.

Guess I should email onetoncv

I see this style of joints at work all the time. Spicer Life line of heavy duty u-joints. It does not seem to me that they would have all that much articulation available in them.

If you want to see them real life, go to a truck parts shop. That looks like the ones I have installed on heavy trucks for thier d-shaft u-joints.

yeah your probably right

about the fuel cell, The back bottom corner hangs below the springs, but just barely. I've thought of bending some tube to go under that back corner since I've already got my fuel cell pretty much set up and moving it would be a whole crap load of more work but.....
