Dana 20 help

Hi guys, just looking for a some experienced knowledge on my transfer case and driveshaft. This doesn't look normal by any means. So I was wondering what is wrong with the tc and propshaft, besides the obvious neglect, and what would be the best/cheapest/correct way to go about fixing my problems.

As far as the transfer case? Without a good cleaning, inspection, etc its hard to say.
Driveshaft is too short !
Middle pic is like yours. Last pic is right.
First pic is backwards and couldn't delete it?

So how could I correct this? I think the PO installed a 2.5in suspension lift, but I can't really tell. Would that effect this? How would I measure this?
Also, would it be better to remove the tc to clean it and see what's wrong, or just join the circus and become a contortionist?

the axles don't lift with a lift kit but the po never realized that i guess. need a new (longer) drive shaft to accommodate the lift that was done.

That DS needs to be about 1.5" longer.
Bet the slip spline pulls out, when you lift that Jeep and let the axle just 'hang'.

Crap, that's what I thought. Definitely don't have the money right now for a new DS and this is my daily driver. News like this makes the wife really happy, you should have seen her when I told her I need to buy basically every smog component.
