CJ - Clocking a D300 - driveshaft mods needed?

I've read several good posts on the subject but have not seen much mentioned about drivshafts. With between 3-4 in. of lift and the x-fer case just above the frame rail will my stock drive shafts work? If not what do you suggest?

Thanks

Mark

You will need to have a new one made, (Tom woods) comes to mind, or a local drive shaft shop can cut and install a new tube on yours. This is usually the least expensive. The best bet is to get it all done and then measure from flat to flat on the yokes. then measure your shaft. To do this compress the slip joint and then pull it out about 1.5" and then measure from center of the u-joint where it would sit on the yoke when installed. if this is the same your in luck if not have the new shaft made to fit these measurements.

The rear shouldn't change due to clocking, but the front will. My CJ had a really small diameter driveshaft in front so I was glad it needed replacing.

I went to a dismantler that had over 100 driveshafts hanging from hooks. I found one that was a perfect fit, was in great shape, and was a larger diameter (was probably from the rear of some other vehicle). It cost $70.
