Need a slip yoke for K20 - anyone know the right one to order?

I am having a new driveshaft made for my pickup - long story short - this truck was originally a k10 with a 700r4/np208. I have swapped the 14 bolt into the rear using my original driveshaft and a "trick" u-joint to make it work.

My drive shaft is slightly bent so having a new one made - I want to have one made to "k20" specs with the larger u-joints on the whole shaft. I tried to find one in a parts yard but no one local has it - most say they used forklifts to move them around so the shafts get destroyed by them. I was going to get one just so I could get the slip yoke off it.

The shop making the driveshaft doesnt have slip yokes he said, just makes the shaft.

Can someone point me to a replacement slip yoke I can buy online to have shipped to me, I tried ebay without luck.

this guy is local to me and good seller . i have got lots of stuff from him .

buy this and just have your guy shorten the shaft if it even needs to be shorter .

being the th400/208 combo is around the same length as your 700r4/208 combo you might get super lucky .

the m1008 is the military k30 truck . should work just fine in the price point . and always cheeper to shorten a shaft than retube and lengthen them .
