1973-1977 Dual Splined Steering Shaft Options

Guys what are the options to delete the rag joint at the steering box? I know Borgeson makes a shaft with a universal joint at the column, but what if a guy wants universal joints at both ends like the jeep shaft mod common to 79-87 C10 owners and many many other restomod setups?

I have heard of folks using a 1988-96 Jeep Cherokee (XJ) Intermediate Shaft as a replacement. I think you can also get shafts from IDIDIT and Borgeson, which are pretty expensive.

Not on the 73-78 trucks. The Cherokee shaft won't fit on the column end

Anyone know the size and spline count of the gear box? I'd like to order the Borgeson joints and make my own.
