    my buddy has the 80 jimmy and needs to find a rear drive shaft for it since he bought it without. It has a 350/350/205 combo and a 12 bolt rear. heres the question what size or what other d-shafts would work in this setup? is it just better to take a longer driveshaft in to get shortened? or lengthened? Thanks

    I think that it is, I will have to look. i had a DS from a 700R4/205 with a 10 bolt in the rear. The yoke on that drive shaft fit in my transfer case. But I will find out tonight! Thanks Mike Jimmy
