    Spicer is a manufacturer, Tom Woods is a builder that will likely use Spicer parts. Sounds like you should use the quickest method, all other things being equal.

    Not so much, at least in the rear drive shaft I purchased (tom wood's, bought from quadratec) it uses his own gold seal u joints, brass bushings as opposed to needle bearings. Plus it has a lifetime warranty, including the u joints. It's worth the extra week especially since she can still drive the Jeep without the front drive shaft.
