Rear Driveshaft length?

Does anyone know what the Rear CV driveshaft length should be around with an Advance Adapters sye and dana 35 rear axle on a 99 Wrangler? When it was stock it measured 19 1/8 inches, but when i got my new TW driveshaft it's tagged 16 3/4 inches. Sounds kind of short to me. My Wrangler is in the process of being lifted with the RE 4.5 Superflex kit, which going very smoothly might I add. What do you guys think about this Driveshaft situation?

I take it you got the kit from 4x4GroupBuy?

How did you measure your old shaft? Like this?


A stock drive shaft is something like 20"... and does not slip like your new one.

I think the 16" is the fully compressed measurement... try pulling it out and measuring it.
