CV or not to CV joint (Scout II SOA conversion)

I am embarking on putting Scout II axles under a YJ frame and putting my CJ on the YJ frame (after I have a rolling chassis). I am getting close to the point of placing the axles to the frame and how I place them will depend on my choice of driveshaft (CV versus cardan, CV points the pinion at the t-case yoke, cardan places the pinion parallel to the t-case yoke).

What has been your experiences and opinions so I can with this swap and choice of joint?

my personal opinion is that unless you drive on the road much the cv is not needed. the cv will help prevent driveline vibes .

Do you have any pics of how you setup the front perch (the one that's normally cast into the housing?)
