CJ7 Front Driveshaft Question

I think may driveshaft may be extended to far. There is some up and down movement in it.

Is the front driveshaft supposed to have 1/2" of the splines sticking out past the the other half of the drive shaft that slides over it, I haven't put the dust shield on yet?

I'll upload pics when I get a chance.

It's not likely that the motor mounts would have gone in at all to allow that much movement showing up in the driveshaft.
