WJ caster with front double double cardan DS

Ok, so I just put on my long arms and will be going take my WJ to get an alignment and plan on providing the specs I want. So I was planning on doing the following

Caster: +4
Toe-in: +1/16" to +1/8"

Then just making sure the rear axle is straight (same arm length)

but now I'm thinking since I have a double double cardan DS in the front I can probably get +6 to +7 caster without issues (or so I think).

Just curious what caster people are running that have the same style front DS.

TIA

Mines at 6* with only a single/double shaft at 4.5" of lift, no vibes.
