Drive shaft/rear end issues

I have a 90 Wrangler with a 4" Rough Country lift. I took out the U joint this weekend. When I went to put it back together the shaft barely fit in the yoke. It's an after market shaft. How much slop is it supposed to have? I think the drive shaft is too long. Also I think the yoke is shot. Any suggestions on a replacement yoke?

Thanks,
Tim

I believe it's the stock rear end. It's got an AMC 360 in it.

Drive shaft

So with 4 inches of lift you really should consider a Slip Yoke Eliminator kit or SYE for short. Do you get a lot of vibration with the after market yoke?

Is there a steep angle from the output shaft of the tail housing on your transfer case to the yoke on the rear end?

Why do you say the yoke is bad the picture is not great so if I am missing something obvious sorry?

Bottom line is if the drive shaft is to long you can get it re-sized pretty easy.
