CRD front driveshaft length

Hey fellow CRD owners..

I'm stuck without a garage, and don't want to to lay in the mud of my driveway to get a length on the front prop shaft. It's scheduled to rain another 2" tonight/tomorrow so I'm a few days away from having a dry spot..

Do any of you happen to know what the length is? I need to order a replacement, and am going with a DC/DC conversion - which I will dutifully report back on

Thanks in advance.

Thanks man.
Another inch and a half of rain today.. We're considering looking into genetic splicing for gills.

That rain sounds like our spring. We had some good flooding this early summer. Sorry, I had a family emergency yesterday, our new baby was not feeling good and had to take him to see the doctor. The length of the front driveshaft is 32.125" give or take a 1/16" flange to flange. The flanges are not your typical Dana 44 style. Sorry the length picture was pretty bad, but I couldn't get it to show up without the flash. But, the picture is just for reference.

Thanks! Off to order a drive shaft..


NWS says we have had 6.6" of rain officially for July.. Since the three days around 4th of July alone were over 5" combined and I've had three other rain events that each dumped over 2" locally on days when the official record says less than an inch, I'm going to say I'm at least double what said record shows.
