NV4500 Driveshaft Question

Real quick esoteric driveshaft question. Feels like a long shot but I'm sure one of you gurus has an answer. Helping a friend with a nv4500 swap. Hoping to get all the parts together before hand. Wondering what the length is on the rear driveshaft for a 4wd Regular cab w350? So from the np205 rear output to the rear diff. If anybody has a length on theirs or someone just randomly knows the length, id really appreciate it. Thanks!

I don't have a std cab 4x4... but the 727/5spd (G360) trucks apparently have the same length shafts, and the NV4500 is close-ish.

Its the auto OD trucks where the front (longer) and rear (shorter) differ by several inches.

Hope that helps a little.

Like u2slow said you should be able to re-use getrag or 727 driveshafts with a NV-4500 swap.
I used a 727 front and a Getrag rear two piece driveshaft on my crew cab swap when I put in the NV-4500.

I think that there is less than .5" o fdifference with the NV4500. I swapped one in to the rig (previously G360) in my sig and everything bolted up no problem.
