Driveshaft slip yoke lubrication

What is the best lubricant for the rear DS slip yoke? Would antiseize (copper based) be better than chassis grease? One issue with the rear DS slip yoke that it has a play even though the slip yoke is new and no signs of wear on the TC output shaft. What lubricant would be best to minimize this play? Thicker grease?

play is normal.
you'll probably want to use a LIGHT coating of an ep grease.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

I use OMC/Bombardier Triple Guard Grease, it is a very heavy duty marine grease that is for driveshaft splines on inboard-outboard marine engines and it works great on driveshaft splines on Jeeps too. You can get it from any Evinrude dealer. Better than car based greases, holds up to salt water and water in general very well.
