SuperDuty ('07) steering box input shaft size?

I'm trying to connect the SuperDuty gearbox to the F-150 intermediate shaft. I already cut off the U-joint from the F-150 intermediate shaft, leaving a perfect bare square shaft. I'm looking for the right U-joint to order so I can weld it on. What is the input shaft size/spline count on the SuperDuty gearbox?

I've read it may be 3/4" 36 spline or 32 spline, but I'm not sure if they are talking about the sector shaft (where the pitman arm bolts to) or the input shaft.

I am not an expert but the suprduty has a dana 60 35 spline axle. I believe same for steering box. I will be upgrading mine as well in January

Not necessarily the best way but I simply measured, aligned and welded the SD input shaft to my Ranger's steering shaft.

You welded the Ranger steering shaft directly to the input shaft? I'm not sure if I want to do something that permanent.

No, we welded the upper half of the Ranger steering shaft to the lower half of the SD shaft. Not much of a picture but this is it.

Thatís essentially how built my steering shafts. Cut weld. Done.

ah ok that makes much more sense. Looks like that's the route I'm going to take. Just got to find a junkyard superduty shaft for a decent price. Thank you.
