Ah, that makes sense... but why wasnt the NP231 done without slip yokes in the first place?

If any model should have had a rear CV DS it should have been the Rubicons since they are running the NP241OR T-case which has a rear fixed flanged output. As well as upgraded axles, gears and lockers.

Bad front axle pinion angle. Double Cardan at the pinion?

I have a bad front axle pinion angle. Typical solutions are to rotate the pinion up towards the transfer case. This negatively affects the caster and maybe bump stop alignment as well as front spring bowing. Would it be better to have a double cardan joint at the pinion to complement the existing one at the front transfer case output?
