Rear Driveshaft Help needed

e99 f250 7.3 auto 4x4 extended cab long bed

Took the rear drive shafts out today to replace a worn out carrier bearing and the 3 u joints while it was out.

Long story short, all the u joints were so rusted in and had to use a ton of creep and cut them out, and the creep managed to wash away my markings!!!

Now for the life of me cannot definitively remember which side is front and back of the rear shaft. Included below are two pictures, which set up is correct

----Assume the transfer case is on the left, and the dif is on the right.

A






B




Stupid situation, but help is very appreciated!! I believe A is correct, but I want to be 100% sure. Need help fast, need her back on the road again!

I vote A.
I wouldn't think the slip joint would go towards the rear differential.

That's what I am thinking, but I had my friend with a 350 shoot me a pic of his, and the slip is near the dif, but I'm almost positive that the slip goes toward the carrier bearing. I'm thinking that his driveshaft is in backwards. Which is possible as the two u joints on the rear shaft are the same part #.

I don't have a two piece driveshaft but the slip on mine is towards the rear end. It was just in the shop w/Ford so I would assume it wasn't backward.
