    I think it is slightly shorter than your rear 12 bolt. It is the same length to the pinion as a 10 bolt rear end. I highly doubt you will need to change the length of your driveshaft though.

    No you don't need to change your driveshaft.

    Stock suspension?
    I had to drop the t-case to keep the rear yoke from binding.
    That was with a 465/205 slip yoke.
    Now that I swapped in a fixed yoke output and a new shaft the driveline angle is alot better though.
