My 76 CJ5 is going back together with a 2.5" spring lift and a T-177/Dana 300 combo. The drive shaft angle looks pretty nasty on that short rear shaft. I need some input; lower the transfer case? CV driveshaft? What is the max angle allowed with the stock shaft while maintaining some level of reliability? Thanks in advance.

I would get a CV shaft. You have a relatively long combination for a CJ5 and that lift makes it even worse. The max working angle for a single u-joint is 15 degrees. Check out http://www.4xshaft.com for all you could want to know about driveline angles and such.
