Mine is a 2003 supercab with Ex 5.0, 4R70W, BW4406 and 8.8 axle. My rear driveshaft is the original Ranger part shortened to exactly 48" center-to-center on the u-joint caps.

If you are going to be going Long travel like you say Chris. You will have to wait and see what your length looks like after cycling your rear suspension. I had my original shaft shortened for my original swap with stock suspension(ex. 5.0, 4r70w,man. 4406). And when I went with the longer travel out back I had to change it again. You won't be able to use any stock rear D-shaft outside of regular street driving.

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.
