Yes keep the longer driveshaft and push the axle back 1.5" It will give you so much more tire clearance (trim the rear bumper a little if need be). I am going to need 2-3" longer longer driveshafts at 8.5" of lift and likely a 4-5" longer wheelbase.

Putting my cladding back on my passenger side today. Going to stop at Lowes and buy 12 more cans of paint so I can finish the roof, grill and front bumper also because I need to put one more coat on the hood and touch up a few areas.

Talked to a guy next door with a 2009 JK sahara. He has a "4 inch lift" and 33 inch tires. He thought he could run 40 inch tires with what he says is a 4" lift (looks like 2" lift to me IDK) I have more tire room on my WJ with my fender trim and BB than he does and there is no way mine can fit 40s.

Got my new to me grill. I like how it looks with straight slots instead of curved, and it will go good with my 5.9 vents

Go install it we need installed pics. I am thinking that this grill would look really good on mine with the flat black paint and my new lights.
