Dam what a big bang

I was driving down the the street the other day when
bang the pinion yoke broke sending the driveshaft
spinning around denting my exaust and nocking the
fuel filter off the frame. Now I don't know if I wrecked
the ring gear or twisted the shaft in the t case.
Does anybody know where I can get a stronger pinion
yoke?

Mine just did the same thing except my yoke cracked and luckily it didnt do any other damage to the truck. The whole 2nd half of the shaft broke out and i had to hunt it down.

for a custom built one. ( all new pieces )

That doesn't sound like a bad price,I've got a local shop near me that specializes in Spicer,etc. custom driveshafts-you could give them a wrecked one and they would make a new one from that.
I had one remade about ten years ago and cost $250 and was a front drive shaft-so $800 sounds pretty fair.
