Front Drive Shaft Problem with lift kit

1994 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited:
I just got this Jeep and it has a 4" Rock Krawler Lift Kit. (I believe it is 4", It has 33X12.5-15" wheels on it and they just fit. (They rub in the front at full turn.)) I went to the junk yard to get a stock front drive shaft out of a 94' because the one I have is about a half inch too short when fully extended. The bad news is that this shaft seems to be the stock one out of a 94'.

. . . . I was told there was a stock drive shaft previously in the vehicle, but am not 100% sure. I got the Jeep without the shaft in it. Also, BTW, This shaft comes out of the Jeep by the U-Joints with caps and bolts, No Yoke to pull out. I will cut and lengthen it with a custom machined sleeve if necasary. But, are there any fixes for this? Please help. Thanks, Jon

@ 4" a double cardan DS will be fine.

Is there a driveshaft I can get from a junk yard out of another vehicle or something? A new drive shaft is somewhat out of my budget right now. If nobody knows a cheaper fix for this than buying new, it looks like I will be lengthening the stock shaft.

you dont need a longer shaft, what DS do you have now, is it the CV or double cardan DS? if its a CV the double caedan DS can be pulled from ZJs and XJs of most any year.
