I've got a 2014 Trek Slash 7, the current Fox Float (DRCV, CTD damper) has an eye to eye length of 8.25 in (209.55 mm) and a stroke length of 2.375 in (60.325 mm). I recently got a really good deal on a Fox Float X2, which has an eye to eye length of 210 mm and a stroke length of 50 mm.

If I were to swap the rear shock, because the eye to eye length is the same and the only measurement changing is the stroke length, would the only effect be that I lose rear wheel travel? Is it okay for me to go ahead and swap the shock?

You would be losing 1.25 inches of rear wheel travel. If you are OK with that, go for it.

I would suggest finding the correct size shock.
