front driveline angle

I have a buddy that has a 2008 JK 4 door. He has a 4" Rough Country lift that was installed from the previous owner. He now has an issue that his Ujoint on the transfer case is failing becasue the angle is too steep. What is needed to even to fix this? I know there is a part for this but cant think of what it is to fix it. Thanks!

He needs a double cardan drive shaft. There's plenty of different ones available, he'll also need to adjust the pinion angle for that kind of lift and the DC driveshaft needs a different angle than a single cardan shaft so he'll need adjustable control arms.

If he doesnt have Adjustable Control Arms he will have a problem with just about any driveshaft. He needs to correct the problem first, which is pinion angle. UCA's will correct that.
