More information is needed.

The type of transmission you have helps determine the lenght of the driveshaft.

Also 2 door or 4 door (wheelbases are different)

A easy way to do this if you have the correct slip yoke is to put the yoke in the transmission, push it ALL the way in and pull it out 3/4 inch. Then measure the distance between the cross centerline and the rear end yoke centerline.

Also most used yokes will have a wear ring worn into the yoke. This is where the factory had the yoke (in/out) riding. Always a good guideline.
