    FINALLY got my transfer case in my 89!!! I didn't think it would ever happen. Anyways, need to get a longer rear shaft, gonna hit the yard tommorow and see what I can find. But what is the length of a pre 88 3/4-1 ton truck?? From yoke nut to pinion nut I have 68".

    I have had 2 1 piece rear shafts from '73 1/2 tons both had a 465/205 in them IIRC they measured about 69" extended. All the other longbed reg cabs I've owned ('73-'80) had a 2 piece unless it had a NP203.

    I had an 84 3/4 ton that had a 1 peice shaft. It was originally a 400/208 with a 14sf rear. I changed the rear for a 14ff, and IIRC needed a longer one cause the nose was shorter on ff. That truck also had a 6" lift on it when I bought it, so PO might have gotten one made. Who knows.
