I had thought is had gotten lucky ending up with the only a750 to have a dipstick (2003) but it looks like I'll be switching to the newer, non dipstick oil pan due to clearance issues.

Also, I'll be trying to find space to clear the transfer case shifter.

Well, I think I have my front driveshaft figured out.

My stock auto shaft is 31"s stretched to the point you can see splines. I found a multi mode 4runner drive shaft on eBay for 70$ that will reach 32"s stretched to the same point. To top it off I picked up a 1.25" spacer from low range off-road. This will fill the 33" gap from the diff to the transfer case and leave my driveshaft with no splines exposed.

Keep in mind my truck is IFS, so the only flexing the shaft is going to do is what the rubber mounts allow side to side and front to back..

The multi mode front driveshaft is in. Once I get everything finalized, it will get pulled out, and painted up, along with all the other bumps and bruises on the frame.
