Aftermarket front drive shaft.

For those of you running an aftermarket front shaft. When the shaft is installed and Jeep is on level ground about how much distance is between the two shafts at the slip yoke? Talked to a local shop he was asking when the Jeep axle flexes up or the suspensions is compressed does the shaft move in or out. I am gonna check this that is easy part. The shaft I have now, if I was to install it would be fully compressed. To me that sounds like a busted transfer case hosing with the first good bump in the road.

Your thoughts? I watched the video for Tom Woods shaft install looks like a couple inches of the spline is exposed but the JK is not under weight.

Current shaft this is fully compressed.

That driveshaft is for much more lift height than you have for sure.

Thanks.. I found some answers elsewhere as well, I know it is not right was just looking for a direction so to speak. Once I get the front end thing lined up going to have this shaft fixed. Guy at the shop here locally was asking a few questions so he knows exactly what to do.
