I know EB and FS ford are different, about 3/4" shorter on an EB than a fullsize.

Not sure on the scout stuff though, but I believe they use the wimpy little 260 U joints anyway??

Nope and nope. Both lengths are different as well as the sline counts.

I have the warn axle chart if ya want it, and here's what it lists FWIW

Bronco (67-71) Long 28.06" Short 18.44" (27 spline) Stub (71-79) 9.72 (19 spline)
Bronco (71-79) Long 27.94" Short 18.31" (27 spline)

Scout (71-80) Long 32.91" Short 14.78" (30 spline) Stub (72-86) 8.72" (27/30 spline)

Your info is off.
27 spline Stuff is called Dana 30
Here are Warns Axle charts

Warn's chart is a joke, I'd go with nearly anything Mr N. says over what Warns spews out.

My research indicates that Scout inners are 14.78" and 32.91" and no other common inner shaft matches up exactly, with the passenger drop Wagoneer's being the closest at 14.6875" and 33.1875"

Of course the 27 spline outers are Scout only, everyone else in the free Dana Spicer world used 19-spline outers on Dana 44's. The Scout outers are a popular swap into CJ Dana 30's looking to run 297x joints, so you may come across an upgraded Dana 30 with outer shafts that will fit your Scout hubs.

In a pinch you could make the wagoneer shafts work if you had the correct outers. You would need to 'trim' the waggy long side inner a touch to make it clear but... that can be done with a metal band saw and ample coiling fluid :flipoff2: for the short side there 'should' be enough spline to make it work even at .10" short...
Just don't try and wedge the long side in with out trimming - it will go together but once you put it in 4x4 mode and add gas - you'll watch your u-joint explode...

Ha! seen it done trail-side with a hack-saw, major suck-fest indeed.
