Where to find a 1980 dana 300?

I Know to search Craigslist, but here in south central Texas there aren't a whole lot of people parting out Cj's... Would I have to get a new driveshaft if I get an 81-86 Dana 300? I know that the rear output is an inch longer on those!

What do you mean by 'not perfect '?
