Rear drive shaft length...8.8 with standard sye. SOA lift

Anyone running a SOA with an 8.8 in the rear. I found a tom woods rear d-shaft on craigslist. It is from a TJ. The collapsed length is 14" and extended length is 19". I can't measure for mine because the drivetrain is not back in the frame. It is a 4.0, ax15, 231 with a standard sye. This could be a great buy if it will fit. Any ideas on a rough length.

Can't really tell mine is a 2.5L, AX-5 and my 21" fit after swapping to an 8.8. Sure wish I had an answer things that are good on CL go fast. Keep searching.

89 2.5 TBI, 4" RC lift, 1" Booms, SYE, Adams Driveshafts front and rear, Ford 8.8 with 4:88s, BFG 33X12.50X15, and a ton of other stuff.

I have a 4" sua and 1" shackle lift. Got about 5" out of the springs. With the 4.0l and AX15. The working length of my driveshaft is 17", not sure about extended and collapsed length though.
92 YJ, 4.0, D44/60, 5" BDS springs rear, SOA front, 1" booms, 1" BL, 35x12.50x15 MTZ's, 4.10 gears. It's never done though.
