If you are thinking of going to a larger lift soon, then this would be the option to pursue. I'm thinking though that rear axle shims will get you what you need.
If you look at the picture you posted of your driveline it doesn't look right. Either the tail end of the TC has to come down or the rear end has to come up. Their angles must be complimentary.

I do realize that the pinion angle is a bit extreme. Im still wondering why it started making the vibes with 1" rubber mounts as opposed to the BD ones.

Find out by swapping in the BD mounts!

They were in with the new engine but the idle vibes were aggravating me so I swapped them for the lift plates. There wasn't anything close to the in gear vibes I'm getting now

Did your driveshaft have any of those small counterweights on them that got knocked off. And if you removed the driveshaft and installed it in a different position that could be the problem.

Get this rig up on four jack stands and run it. See what you can see.

It does have a counter weight I believe, but I think its still on there. Ill check. I sprayed the Ujoints and the pinion on the axle so I knew both front and rear drive shafts went in with the same orientation. Im going to try the Tcase drop tomorrow to fix the drive line angle and see how that does.
