250hp?

Hmm, if I happened to find one, would the aluminum shaft from a quad cab fit on a standard cab, and does anyone think there would be any advantage to doing so?

way too long. no way to make it work.
If you really want one you will have to either find a place that already has all the specs and can make one for you or you will have to supply them with every last detail about the stock unit in order to get one custom made.

Unless you have just about every other bolt on part for your truck there is no point in getting this. Even then it really will not make any kind of noticable difference.

250hp?

I just had my 03 4x4 on the dyno last month after putting on the Predator and a Custom tune. Before we got started we pulled one of the wheels so we could weigh it, tire and rim was 115lbs. Keeping that in mind and it having 70,000 miles on it, I ran 251hprws & 290ftlbs, and I can feel the difference. With that much weight I have no problems with those numbers.(TOYO MTs 20x12.5x35 & American Eagles)

I can feel your pain on that one. My 22"s are real close to 100 each with the tire and wheel.
I bet if you did a run with stock 20s or even better some 17s you would see better numbers.

I just wish that the tuners had been out when i had my truck on the dyno since I hit the speed limiter before getting to peak power.

Mine is aluminum. The only car ive seen that doesnt lose close to 20% is the old rear engine VW. Mine made 135 crank HP with 117 RWHP.

I know this is a late reply, but my cousin's extended cab long bed 2500 Silverado has an aluminum drive shaft. Its huge, but light.

2500 for sure would be a possible reason.. 4x4 would be another.

I know that 2wd 1500 QCs DO have aluminum shafts.. but they are NOT all that great. Guys reaching the high 300hp range have started seeing the limits of the stock shafts with twisting failures.
