driveshaft and SYE

when installing a SYE obviously the stock driveshaft will not work. Until earlier today I assumed the only solution was a DC(double cardigon) shaft was the only option. Someone mentioned using a shaft with single u-joints on both ends with the slip in the middle. This makes sense for smaller lifts, at least in my head. I'm working with about 3 in of lift on my 93 YJ. Which set up should I go with. Pros/cons of each? Or am I completely flawed in my thought process. Everyone seems to go with the DC shafts.

See your local driveline shop, they may find the angle to be to much for what you want, and without seeing it i'd say to have your local shop build you a cv shaft for it, just ask them or whoever you use to keep the china on the shelf and not in your shaft
