Drive shafts

I have a 96 XJ 4x4 with the AW4 tranny and 8.25 rear end. I've heard that the 5 speed drive shafts are roughly 2" longer than the autos. Is this true? I'm hoping to put a 5 speed drive shaft in mine for the time being so I can get rid of the ridiculous transfer case drop kit that I had to do after the lift. Once I save up a few more bucks I'll buy the SYE but I want a quick fix. who knows, if it works I may say forget the SYE and buy lockers with the SYE money. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
