Here is a photo of a mock-up of a 2004R in our '59 Elky chassis. We lucked out - all we had to do was move the frame brackets back a few inches from the yellow marked location, narrow the '59 x-member and bolt it up. The yoke has 1/2" movement w/ stock drive shaft so no shortening is necessary. Small victories.

I usually go for 1" on a normal frame but this is a crazy GM X-frame w/ the carrier bearing in the middle and slip joint that the the rear shaft works on. It takes up the slack of the rear end movement. The front shaft just sits there never articulates or telescopes except to take up whatever minuscule movements there are in the engine and tranny mounts. Thus 1/2" should be plenty don't you think?
