mine was stock plus 1 ( shackles ) now SOA plus 1 ( shackles still ) and my driveshaft needed to be longer by about a inch. this is with NO T case drop. Have heard mentioned you can take the ford driveshaft and cut it down, add jeep end for non-SYE applications. ford explorer driveshaft is several feet longer.
Not sure on ford shafts, but You can use a front shaft from an XJ cherokee, mid 90's models.... but you have to have it shorted.. so at that point depending if the joints are good or bad it might just be better cost wise to get a new cv shaft made.
