Just did the measuring, and as you can see, it appears to be an enclosed driveshaft (if I'm understanding this right). It measures something around 54 inches from backing plate to backing plate, give or take an inch. From leaf spring to leaf spring, it comes in at exactly 42 1/2. And if it matters, the axle is 2 1/2 inches wide, and I just found out it's probably a 3/4 ton.
