Default Steeda Diveshaft vs. Spyder Driveshaft?

I was browsing Steeda's page yesterday and I noticed they were offering a new driveshaft. It looks suspiciously like the Spyder driveshaft.

Are they from the same supplier? Or is it possible that Steeda is simply modifying their own Ranger driveshafts? There is no patent on the process, so theoretically any shop could do the conversion.

Here are the links:

Wait, so you don't make the steeda driveshaft? If so, they totally ripped you off. Not that I can blame them, replacing the pinion flange is what sets you apart. Adapters are a bandaid in my opinion. An automotive afterthought.

*EDIT* Nevermind. I just realized that you are supplying steeda with their driveshafts. Wow, the tapered shaft is something new. How hard was that?
