I don't really care much for crawling around in the snow if I don't have to.
Sorry, there's another way to measure but I don't remember the specs or the technique. I THINK it's from the top of the axle housing to the "frame rail" but if that's right, I don't know the distance.

As for the drive line angles, the pinion should be pointing up at the same angle that the t-case is pointing down. BUT, if the drive shaft itself is more than 6*?, 10*? greater than either end, it can cause vibrations.
