Default Fllat flange to flat flange question

I am putting 2 overdrive boxes behind my transfer case in a truck.
The 2 overdrive boxes have flat flanges at both ends and will mount like a divorced transfer case.

What I am wondering is if I could use a single u joint eliminating the center yoke?
Or if this a horrible idea which will lead to bearing and seal issues?


Could I get away with this?

Or would I need to go with the center yoke which is considerably longer?

When you compare the two you can easily see why I want to do this if it is possible.
