What noone is mentioning is a 1" MML. They are inexpensive (about $60 if you buy the JKS one that uses the factory motor mounts) and if your vibes are very minimal it should help ease the rear driveline angle enough to help you out. I think Teraflex makes a 5/8" one of that style as well.

Running a MML and a TC drop together certainly isn't ideal, but it can fix you up until you can save the money to get a SYE/rear driveshaft/adjustable UCA's and do it properly.

Rubicon Express RE1895-255 - Rubicon Express Rear CV Driveshaft for 04-06 Jeep® Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon with Short Arm Suspension Lift - Quadratec
I was cruising and looking for the necessary stuff I am going to need and I stumbled onto this and had to put it out here and ask. What do you think?
Correct me if im wrong but is for a "RUBICON MODEL ONLY"
Dosent the rubicon come stock with an sye and cv style rear driveshaft?? So this would not work with the 231 tranfer case, right??

Rubicon does come with a fixed output so does not need a SYE but Rubicon does not come with a CV driveshaft. Since this is for a Rubicon it is probably set up for the fixed output of a 241.

Here's a list of parts you need to do the SYE/CV rear driveshaft modification (not necessarily these exact brands, but since you've got RE parts anyway). If you shop around, you might find these parts cheaper, and there's other companies that make these too (like the adjustable upper control arms).

Adjustable rear upper control arms (so you can adjust your rear pinion angle when you install the SYE and CV driveshaft)

http://www.rubiconexpress.com/jeep/ZJ/Product.aspx?part=RE3783

Rear track bar bracket to compensate for the rotated rear axle. Do you also have an adjustable rear trackbar? If not, you might need one to center your rear axle.

http://www.rubiconexpress.com/Products/Default.aspx?part=RE1602

AA SYE and CV rear drive shaft (can also be ordered directly from Tom Wood's company - might be cheaper). Definitely shop around here; some places want to charge you more for just the rear CV driveshaft than for this complete combo.

You might also need to buy a pair of rear shock relocator brackets that mount on the axle after you rotate your axle for the SYE/CV driveshaft. This is what I put on mine:
