Driveshaft lift question

I have a 2012 f250 I'm looking to run a custom 10 inch lift from pure performance, has anyone ran into any stock driveshaft problems lifting 10 inches or more??

Save yourself a lifetime of headache trying to align your two piece to eliminate vibration - just buy a one piece driveline. I threw my stock two piece in dumpster when truck had 80 miles it - never looked back, no vibrations

Any driveline shop will build you one for about $300-$450, take your truck to your local reputable shop.

If you take your measurements you can have a shop build and ship you one. When I was in AK I did that. I've used Drivelines Unlimited in San Antonio and Dan's Driveline in Las Vegas. Rather have local build though to make sure measurements are done right.

You must not be 4 door? Still need to get it lengthened for 10" lift but that's much cheaper, like $100 to get lengthened and balanced
