Help! Front drive shaft for doubler setup

Has anyone sourced a stock driveshaft for direct fit on a doubler setup(203/205 ord kit behind th350, dana 60 front, 14b ff rear)?

I have the flange output on my chevy np205. I roughly measured it out to 33-34" flange to center of joint at static load (tires on ground, full weight on front axle). Rough measurement because the 205 isn't installed yet.

I know you can pick up adapter yokes to eliminate the cv joint on the shaft, but was curious if there was a drop in shaft. My stock one is obviously too short, and is worn out to boot.

Hope my spelling and punctuation is better than DEVON. What a turd.

Jake

Might I add that I don't have the coin to have one made.

I can shorten shafts at the family shop, but would prefer something drop in.

If you don't have the coin then just cut the one you have down.....just about zero dollars into it, if you already have all longer driveshaft!
