Just a thought, but since you're not going to be offroading / using the capabilities of the lift, why not just wait until the driveshafts come in? Seems to me like there would be less work involved if you do it all at once.

I wouldn't be worrying about the driveshafts - I'd be more concerned with cracking your transfer case or damaging your pinion bearings. All in the name of glory, I suppose. BTW, why only 6"? I'm sure that there is a 8" or 10" JK lift on the market somewhere.
LOL ^ yes, glory is the term. Screw the 6"... I found a sweet 3 foot lift.. yeah, made out of twoXfour's.. heard it allows for awesome flexing. Does anyone know how to reduce such an angle... or are we just going to mess with me on my choice of lifts?
Proper way to reduce angle: desired lift size combined with proper-length driveshafts. There are no "other" magic solutions, everyone has made very valid points above.
Fact is that a 3" lift is 'pushing it' with stock driveshafts. IMHO, you are only asking for trouble by running stock driveshafts on a 6" monster-truck JK lift.
Any lift 3" or above deserves to be done right - and it only gets more expensive the bigger you go. You're in for a big bill if you do your 6" lift correctly. Or if you don't do it right, you're in for a big repair bill when your pinion bearings/axle housing blows or your transfer case cracks and spills it's guts out.
SAG, do not discourage OP with the truth! I want to see carnage pics in the future. Lol
