drive shaft question

I am trying to convert my cj7 from SOA to SUA. I have a line on some stock drive shafts. Based on my engine and transmission I need to have 31.75 in the front and 20.75 in the rear.

The ones I am trying to buy are 30.25 front and 20.5 in the rear.

Any idea if these would be acceptable with a 2 inch lift?

A 1/4 in the rear should be no issue, just make sure you have plenty of slip in the yoke in both directions. The front may be an issue, 1.5 inches may take you out of acceptable slip range, it is the front and I would guess it requires more slip in the extended side so you are losing 1.5 of travel right off the bat. If not bouncing is planned you maybe OK.
