Rear Driveshaft broke off

My rear driveshaft broke off my 03 F250 Lariat (6L) while doing about 70 MPH yesterday and I need to get a new one. Anybody know a place I could get a good quality rear driveshaft? I was told the ones from FORD aren't serviceable and would like to get a good quality replacement. WB is 156. Thanks.

IDK if this will help you, but here is a good junkyard locator: Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market

Dropped mine off at Driveshaft Specialists in Jacksonville, FL today. It'll be about $500 for them to make one but it'll have serviceable u-joints and won't have the bulky vibration dampener Ford puts on them. The Ford shop wanted $1100 for a new one and the junkyard I called said they had one for $150. I said sweet I'll just get that and put new u-joints in it and be good to go, but when I made the 45 minute drive there they found out that it had been sold and just not taken out of the inventory. So I should have a new balanced driveshaft tomorrow evening sometime. Why is it the parts that are the easiest to replace are the hardest to find? Ridiculous.

03.5 F250SD (6.0), 35" BFG A/T KO's, patched radiator, new rear driveshaft, new ICP sensor, 5" turbo back MBRP, AFE intake, SCT flash and EDGE Insight Touch Screen, BD Diesel Boots, Pro Comp Rear shocks with Dual Ranchos in the front, it's red.
