I guess you could search the bone yards and see if you can find the right length to get it going.
Haha I can wait..... That way I don't break something else like you said..... when you say 3" do you mean steel? I would think alum would be more expensive then 200. Im gonna call tomorrow and order it. I called fleetpride and they said 300-325. Ill just ask for 1330 joints with 3" tubing.

I found this.. http://72.236.255.133/p374_1330_seri...ge_bolt_p.html but it says 3"... not sure... help someone lol! Thanks again!

Looks like what's on the 8.8" Ranger axle in my S-10. Best thing would be to get your "bolt circle diameter" dimension and call them, since they neglected to put this dimension in the ad. Buy the bolts too, if you don't have them. they're 12 point grade 8 bolts that get torqued to 70 ft-lbs.

I measured two bolt holes directly across from each other( 9 o clock position and 3 o clock position)... it was just about four inches... I didn't measure from the middle of the bolt holes just the inside edge. And thanks for the suggestion on getting the bolts had the torque spec.

Measure from INside edge of one hole to OUTside edge of the other. It will give you the same reading as measuring center-to-center

There is also Denny's Driveshaft, I've used them before, good parts, and in your area of the country

Lol wow. I didn't even think of measuring.it that way. Ill do that when I get home from work. I already called Denny's and he didn't want to touch the job due to the offset in the rearend....

Looks like your correct. You can measure your Pilot Dia to double check.

From what I have gathered online Ford used two different size flanges for the 8.8 rear end. The referred to them as the small and big flange. I'm guessing tthesmall has the 3.5" bolt circle diameter and uses that 2-2-949 and the big flange uses the 4.25" bolt circle diameter and uses 2-2-1399. Can anyone verify this for me?
