Exhaust hangers

How do you guys with lifted ZJs that you wheel, hang your exhaust? From the factory I know they hang really low and would get torn off the second you hit a trail. I just re-did the exhaust on my new jeep and it's rubbing on the rear driveshaft when I make a right hand turn. Had this same problem when I did it on my old jeep too.

On the old jeep I was able to hang it from the rear sway bar and pull it away from the driveshaft, but that doesn't look like it'll work on the new one. I ended up hanging it from the little plate that hangs down from the floor. But I need to pull it further to the passenger's side. Also on either jeep I've never been able to get the tail pipe to sit straight...

My old jeep had 3" coil spacers and UC coils. New jeep has a 4.5" RC short-arm lift. So they're both around the same height on short arms.

I'm somewhere in between 5.5-6", when I redid my exhaust, I put a new cat on an 18" glasspack and then a turndown. Mine dumps somewhere close to a foot before the gas tank, never had a problem with it getting caught on anything.
