drive shafts

got a pretty dumb question. what year drive shafts work on a 97 f250. iam doing a man swap and i dont want to ruin the auto shafts. i figure that they have to be out of a 250 or 350 but just want cleared up before i go get a set

All depends what wheel base you have

but a 96/97 driveshaft from the same cab/bed configuration will work

Yes, you need a reg cab driveshaft. An F350 one will work too.

It has to be 2wd or 4wd specific.

You should fill out your signature so WE know what you are working on

Junk yard is wrong. The rear shaft on the 80-95 is slip yolk. a 96/97 has flat flange it bolts to
