Driveshaft length

Does anyone have a stock 1-piece k5 driveshaft laying around? I'm looking at driveshaft options for my F150, and am needing a driveshaft around 34.5" long with 1330 yokes, so I figured a K5 may be an option.

If someone doesn't mind measuring their shaft, and gettin' back to me on how long it is, that'd be great.

Also, could you please mention what trans/tcase combo is in that k5 (or other truck).

Thanks!

Chevy is going to have either a 1310 if the slip is on the driveshaft or S44 ujoint if the slip is on the t-case.

Just get a ford shaft and have it cut down to the right size. It shouldnt cost all that much to have it done. I think the last one I had done a couple years ago was about $80.

That's the plan. I just figured if a little time, and a little research, could save me $80, its worth it. Ya know?
