Exclamation Driveshaft differences

Im in the process of doing an automatic to manual swap on my 94 dakota. Im trying to get a driveshaft. I found a few listings on ebay but they are for the 2.5l and 3.9l trucks. I have a 318 and nv3500. The part compatibility thing ebay has said the those driveshafts are not going to work. Is that true and if so, What are the differences. All the drive shafts are for a 112"wb manual.

Was the 94 available with a 5 speed and 5.2? I know the 95-96 was, But some of the early magnum 5.2 were only available in automatic.

edit to ask, is your truck 2 or 4 wheel drive?

Look on rock auto, they usually have the different drive shafts listed and do a good job of describing them.
