Nope....two different trucks.
Blue is a 81 shortbox, 440,727,203,Dana 60 front with a Trac-lok, Dana 60 rear with a Detroit, 4:10's, cross-over steering, 8" Superlift springs, 3" exhaust, Warn x9000i winch, 2001 60/40 leather seat.
The pictures are not current, hope to have some updated ones soon.

Red is a 92 long box,1 ton diesel frame, 12" Superlift springs in front, 10" in rear, all spring mounts dropped 6" ( front not shown), 440, 727,divorced 205.
Truck is on a very built 60 front and 70 rear, 4:88's in these pictures. Those axles are coming out( still new, never run) and are being replaced with 2.5 ton Rockwells and 48" Terra tires. So far this truck has been 11 years in the making :p

The dually is pretty much stock....Cummins, auto, SLT plus, basically full load. Only add-ons so far is the ARE cover and the Boss running boards. Has the small chip in it too.

The blue truck is still under construction. What is helping me with my driveshafts is that I am using 1410 yokes. My angles are all within 2 degrees and not too extreme. I'm not doing anything to the rear shaft...it was new 2 years ago and already has a long travel slip joint. The front still needs to be made and I hope to have it done without the CV joint. It will be an inch or two longer then stock.
I took a bunch of pictures this weekend so hopefully I can add them soon.

That number sounds familar. They should measure 52" , eye to eye. Those ones keep the wheel pretty much centered in the wheelwell.

Which one? The blue truck or red truck? The Blue one will be somewhere near 6'. Hope to have the red truck mocked up in the next month. It's just under 7' on the dana's and stock tires.
