Did yours originally go straight out of the t-case? If not, could you use one of the 90* gearboxes to send it straight towards the cab?

Look at 80's trucks with NP208's, they're longer and work with a doubler

Napa should have a 100" variant or close to it...may have to play with years for parts counter monkey to find it...

The one I bought from them was considerably longer than necessary...

I've found 2 standard lengths available these days:
100" - ACDELCO 88959481
80" - ACDELCO 88959478

There are aftermarket versions priced pretty reasonably.
