Driveshaft Swap

hey guys I have an 2000 Ex 4wd that about to get a lift, I also have a 99.5 F-350 2wd thats a work truck. I was thinking of swapping the driveshafts if possible, so I can shim the Ex if I need to, the 99.5 will never be any higher off the ground than it is right now. I figured simce they are both 350's it wouldn't be a problem, but I'm not 100% sure.

Not much TJ just a 4" I know that I will most likely not need to shim the driveshaft, but, while it's on the lift, I figured what the hell..

I would rather have a one piece driveshaft IMHO. A 4" lift shouldnt really shoudnt affect the the angles that much. If it does you can get degree'd shims to put between the spring and axle to get the angles better.
