Slip drive shafts that are stock generally have a 2-3" slip.
After you install the lift and sye. You'll have to measure from the axle yoke to the sye yoke. Use that measurement and factor in the 2-3" slip.
So if you have ( example) 30" between yokes you'll want a 33" shaft when its fully extended.
There's a lot of controversy over cv vs double Cardin. Research that. Make your own decision.
Front drive shafts come in different sizes due to different drivetrain set ups. So there's a variety in junkyards.

All of that info depends on whether you believe it or not. What's your personal experience? I run 35/14.50 swampers on 3.73 gears. I run out of gear at 75 MPH. And in sugar sand and crawling I tend to run out if gear and get stuck. I'm building axles now. 4.56.
Now if you have tons of torque and HP it'll help turn the bigger tires on 3.55's. But it still not optimal. Its easier and cheaper to play with axles and gears than it is to pull a motor and drop $5000 in it.

I run in rock and dirt/mud
I run out of gearing on climbs but that's why I have a gear selector. And I run them in 4 low.

5.2 ZJ Pushing a dana 30 as far as it will go.

That's the beauty of 4wd. But the fun comes from conquering holes in 2 wheel lol. And yes you're right about 4 lo.

Maybe I should have clarified on the MPH thing. I can go over 65 if I want, I'm not saying thats my top speed but I'm definitely keeping my foot to the floor to maintain anything over 65. 65 is what I can maintain on a highway comfortably but thats slow as hell imo but I only drive on the highway 2-3 times a year. Then again I'm in a 92 that tops out around 85 normally anyway. Off road and around town is just fine. Sure I take a bit longer to accelerate but 45 is a real sweet spot on 3.55s which is good for me because stock I cant help but speed all the time.

All I meant is 33s and stock gears aren't good for the highway if thats a factor because someone said there was no need to regear for 33s which isn't exactly true.

You're right. Its not even speed or acceleration that should be considered. Its the extra stress on the system. From axle components to wearing out trans and engines.
