Measuring for Double Cardan Drive Shaft

Folks,

Can you give me some insight as to when to measure the length of the driveshaft. Do I wait until I do the lift, or can I measure now and order?

Im going with the OME 2.5 and JKS BL and MORE MML.

It's from flat spot on the back of the transfer case (as if the DS was off) TO flat spots on the front of the rear diff yoke.
I believe it measures about 16 1/4". When you call TW or a vendor, they will go by expected lift up to 6" and over 6".

If you call TW, you will find them very helpful. I actually s/w Tom Woods, the day I called He answered the phone.
You will be impressed by the product. Very well made.

RubiconSS, Thanks for the tip. Ill follow that guidance.

tonkaJP: I dont want to do my lift, find out I have vibes, then have to wait weeks for a Driveshaft. I tend to error on the conservative side, and money to me isnt the issue. I just want to be ready with everything, and also have the flexibility and future ability to just add in a TT.

Thanks both for your replies!
