Quick question guys. Im thinking it is uniform and the same. But before i pass on jncorrect info.

Are the front driveshaft lengths the same for a ecsb and cclb truck. Both 96 year models. Thanks

as long as they had the same transmission they should be the same length.

i know you have your issues solved, but just FYI: the TTB in the ECSB (and all 250s) have a different drive shaft than the CCLB (and all 350s) the 350 uses a double cardan joint and the yoke off the T-case is different for the 2 driveshafts

94.5 F250 Reg Cab 4x4 5 speed 4.10 276000 plus miles

97 F350 Crew Cab LB 4x4 5 speed 3.55 320000 plus miles (parts truck)

Thank you terry. We were looking under my F350s and his F250 and noticed the difference.

We would just have to change yoke on transfer case right? And then find appropriate drive shaft from a F350 that is correct length. Basically out of a manual 4x4 diesel F350. I am correct in that assumption right?

Yeah. The transmission lengths i think will mess up the driveshaft lengths.
