    What model trucks came with 1 piece rear driveshafts that had a rear 1350 u-joint and a front slip yoke for a np241? I'm thinking that 88+ 3/4ton and 1ton 4wd regcab and ex-cabs probably could fit this bill (Newer body style of course). Am I right?

    If I find one cheap I'm thinking I could shorten it and keep it for a trail spare or have it modded to make a cv shaft for the Blaz. What y'all think?

    most if not all 88-up are aluminum shaft. and 14 sf rear up is 1350 for sure. not sure on 10 bolt.

    So the 1350 will work, how about the slip yoke for the np241 tail? Are they all the same spline or did they change?

    I am curious about this as well. I do know that some stock Blazers through out the 80's IIRC that had a 465 in them came with 1350's in the rear driveline at the slip yoke and axle yoke. Mine did......

    My 88 GMC 3/4 4x4 sub had the setup you are looking for. 350/400/208
    slip yoke to 14SF with 1350 u-joints at both ends. Not sure, but I don't think the M1008 had a two piece shaft, so there might be a source for you.
