Driveshaft issues

So I had this little problem where I was driving down the road, and apparently, one of my u-joints failed and fell apart and then the rear half of the drives shaft slid off and was lost on the freeway. Anyway, now I'm trying to track down the right replacement for it. Now, I've been told that if you lift your Jeep, which mine is, it as a 4" suspention lift on it (at least I think it's a suspension lift. Anyone know how to tell if it's suspension or body?), that you need to repace the drive shaft with a longer one, at least if you want to do any off-roading you do. So where do I go to find a new drive shaft that is built for a lifted Jeep?

They sell the extended drive shafts.....also the slip yoke eliminators to cut down on the drive shaft angle

Ive got a 4 inch lift on my Jeep and offroaded with the stock drive shaft all the time. It holds up fine. If you do a slip yoke eliminator, then you need an extended drive shaft.

Do you have pictures of the underside of your jeep to help us identify if it is a suspension or body lift?
