I run a small block/T350 setup in my CJ too. I feel your pain with the driveshaft. My motor is currently centered but I'm running a long-splined driveshaft with the splined part riding next to the pan. The actual tube doesn't start until a couple inches from the pan. I have made contact under hard flex but normally, the smaller diameter of the splines clears okay...
