I'm headed to the junk yard. I'm gonna measure a whole bunch of driveshafts for the hell of it. I ended up paying 240$ to have a shaft made. I used the yoke from the ranger driveshaft on the rearend end, and I got a whole new tube instead of shortening my ranger shaft cuz it was so rusty. then on the other end for the slip yoke I bought a new yoke the same size as the f150 slip yoke so I didn't need a offset ujoint. its kind of stupid. the f150 I have is a reg cab long box and the ends of the driveshaft are a half inch smaller than our ranger but yet have a bigger ujoint. its a stupicd looking driveshaft. it goes about 6 to 8 inches in from each end and then gets bigger, I think about an inch just remembering off the top of my head. so I couldn't shorten that one myself. my driveshaft measures 49 1/2 inches from center of ujoint to center of ujoint. I'm not sure why mine is 1 1/2 inches longer than bobs. I have deaver leafs and I still have the stock 2 1/2 inch block on the rearend but I have the shackle flipped. so I'm not a real lot higher than stock. and the stock front f150 shaft wouldn't quite fit in mine. I couldn't quite slide it together enough to get it in so I pulled it apart and cut about 5/8 of an inch off so it could slide together a little further.
