Well I replaced the prop shaft a couple months ago with factory new CV shaft. The job was easier than expected and without cutting the frame cross member. I did however take a pair of smooth jaw knipex pliers and gently rolled (bent) the cross forward member just enough to allow the shaft to pass through. The entire job was less than three hours and could prob do it in half that time now.Especially around here ranchers get stuff wrapped around the cv shaft or sticks and mud ruin the boot. Then you have to replace the whole thing.
Also I like the beef of the superatv shaft but you cant split the front yoke to tighten it on the input shaft of the diff. So on a couple I had already installed the superatv shaft I installed a Polaris yoke on the front.
Or just buy the Polaris propshaft.

One issue noted about the removed shaft. The noise seems to have been from the prop shaft to front diff mating area due to wear. The Polaris design seems to not have enough spline engagement to provide good support. I am tempted to drill and tap the old shaft fwd yolk 90 degrees to the attaching pin and add bolts that go down against the fwd diff input shaft to tighten the fwd yolk to the input shaft.
