As was expected, Rich at Doghouse Diesel quickly responded back with good news! I'm totally stoked.
I'm sure he won't mind me posting his response as there are likely many SHORTBOX 2wd guys interested in this. Note that that his custom driveshaft is NOT for longbox 2wd's.
Yes, we can do one for your truck, that’s no issue.
I really need to change that description so it fits guys with your combination.
The only problem is, we are out of stock on the 1480 yokes from Spicer. They’re a national backorder right now. We’ve had the parts on order for 7 weeks.
With the NV5600 you MUST use the larger 1480 joints and yokes; this is for all manual trucks. The reason being, your truck has the larger AAM 1485
joints from the factory, as compared to their 1415 joints that the automatics gets. These are supposed to be equivalent to Spicers 1410’s/1480’s.
While they are in size, they’re not nearly as strong. Will the 1410’s handle your truck? Yes, but due to liability we can’t build one with small joints than it came with from the factory.
But in short, yes we can build you one, we just have to wait on parts from Spicer.

Since I'm in Canada, shipping a driveshaft here is a total ripoff. I would need to have it shipped to Montana & then cruise down to pick it up.
This will require some planning on my part unless I run into U-joint problems before then.
