how to fit a th350 and a dana 300???

Here's the problem. I have a chevy 350, th350, dana 33 combo in my cj-7 with a 14 bolt rear and a HD dana 44 front. Is a typical passenger side dana so it isn't a flipped dana 300. I run into the problem because my dana 300 is clocked flat and that leaves me almost no room for a front driveshaft because the shaft would hit the side of the pan on the th350. As is the stock driveshaft fits exactly as far as width goes and I can maybe grind a 1/4 inch off the side of the pan without problems. So how in the world can I run a one ton driveshaft here???
The only possible thing i can think of is a two piece driveshaft with a straight splined piece coming straight out of the dana300 till it passes the tranny then having a mount on my skidpan for there to be a link in the driveshaft. Jesse at High agle driveline said it should be possible but I was wondering if anyone else had any other solutions. Thanks

Well at the moment I am not running anything cause i just swapped in the dana 44 front. The stock one that did fit was maybe 1.25 inches in diameter where it meets the pan of the tranny. But I need a one ton shft and am trying to figure out how to get a bigger one on Thank

you need to get a long travel shaft made that uses a LONG spline shaft for one end and the other end is basically the same diameter of the female portion of the slip yoke on a drive shaft. jess at high angle should be able to hook you up. the long splined end is just that. there is no tube at all.
