As an option, years ago, in my Jeep VEX, the 1983 CJ-7, I had dialed it up to 1 ton status and so doing went to a junk yard for my DLs.
I got both front and rear from a wrecked 1 ton Ford F-350. I used both, front and rear with the new yokes to accommodate the Dana 300 TC. They have CV joints in the TC side of each. Makes for a very smooth ride and they are virtually indestructible. I took it to a DL shop and had them cut them to fit. With 7" of lift they work very well.
Just an idea, but it DOES work. The heaviest the better is the rule.
