    I believe the difference in length is about 1.5-2 inches. It also needs a different ujoint or get the conversion ones. Course the conversion joints puked on me and cost me a driveline so I don't put much faith in them.

    Go ahead and buy a new yoke and forget the 1310/1350 conversion ujoint.
    I never worry in 2wd with a 14bff and 1350 ujoints and 3.5" rear driveshaft. I don't think I could ever break it with my my 350.
    If I had that conversion ujoint, I know it would eventually snap on me.
