if you want a one piece drive shaft talk to a local drive shaft shop, if you have one near. i live in a po dunk town and have 2 of them within 30 miles, but idk about your situation. anyways, my brother had a shop make his drive shaft (2nd gen ext cab long bed) and they told him they were unsure about a 1 peice steel shaft because it may twist, and said it was almost $900 to make an aluminum one, but he opted for the steel shaft for about $500 with really thick tubing (.093 i think?) and it has held up to multiple pulls and a couple 13.0 passes with boosted launches. it even shattered his pinion yoke during a pull but the shaft was ok (well, it was dented from flopping around in the driveshaft loop and had to be remade, but the steel driveshaft itself did not fail)
