I have a one piece in my gen II but it was custom made, you'll probably have to put in pinion angle shims to make the angle correct as well

any driveshaft from a '98+ will work...as long as the truck has the same specs as your truck (ie: extended cab 4x4)....you might have to swap out the driveshaft to rear axle adaptor to your old one if you still have the 7.5 axle in the rear....

ANY '98+ 2wd with the same cab style will work in it.....you could even find an aluminum shaft in the newer Rangers.......

same cab style and bed length... if you have a regular cab 7-foot bed then you need to find a driveshaft from one of those, and good luck on that, there weren't nearly as many of those from 98+ as there were in the 1st and 2nd gen trucks. It also will need to be from a 2wd truck with either the auto or manual tranny, whichever is in your 92 because the 2wd outputs are different on the two trannys. You will also need to remove the carrier bearing crossmember when you put in the one piece shaft.
