As far as grade 5 vs grade 8...

Sure the grade 5 will deflect more before it breaks than the grade 8. You have to consider that the grade 5 will have broken before the grade 8 even begins to deflect

By your logic upgrading to 4130 or 4340 axle shafts is really a downgrade compared to the stock 1541H dana shafts.

OP, just pony up and buy a body lift. Im not one to support big walmart type stores but 4wd.com has up to 20% off site wide until midnight. You can get a 1" BL (as big as I would go) for under a hundred bucks. Hockey pucks were meant for hockey. In any situation they are used on a jeep (BL or seat risers) the preload on the bolts is enough to crack the puck.

A body lift merely puts spacers between the body and the frame providing lift. This type of lift does not touch the suspension (i.e. springs, shocks, bumpstops, etc). However, a suspension lift would require changes to be made for springs, shocks, bumpstops, etc and are usually fairly pricey. A bodylift is an economical way to provide additional clearance for larger tires but it does not allow for any additional axle articulation (or up and down motion). If you choose a body lift, i'd recommend nothing larger than 2 inches because of the added stress on the actual body mounts, plus 3" and larger kits look kinda funny in my opinion. Definitely do your research and ask plenty of questions on JF before making an investment.
Good Luck!

Thanks for your input!
Than you can get a Black Mountain 2" body lift for under $100.

Late comment - but as a hockey player, I'll note that today's ice hockey pucks (made in the czech republic) are quite soft when not frozen. Plus they chunk pretty easy. I couldn't imagine in a body lift application them lasting more than a month.

NHL game pucks are still Canadian made.

Inline skate wheels? Mine chunk easily and the plastic hubs in the middle break from time to time. Again, no way these last a month in a body lift.

Don't skateboard.

My 2" Performance Accessories body lift has not had an issue in over 10 years so far.

What no one said but everyone implied is that body lifts over 1 inch are frowned upon because they don't much other than let you clear tire size. You won't gain much off road and will certainly look silly with a 3 inch Body lift and no suspension work. Raised center of gravity + silly gaps everywhere = do a 1 inch BL with a quality 2.5 inch suspension lift and you'll be much happier.

Great deal on a kit. Not mine, just saw it on craigslist. It is the same kit I have though. I'm very happy. Only issue with this kit is you have to reuse factory sleeves which can b difficult to remove sometimes. I removed mine wire brushed them and painted them before installing on the new daystar bushings.
