AEV Dualsport SC 3.5" drive shaft connection

I have an '09 JK 4D and just installed this lift kit. My last step is to re-connect the drive shaft, but it appears about 2" too short now. Any suggestions?

The boot in the middle covers the slip joint. Did you try extending it?

Some lifts require removing the DS To allow the axle to drop down without contacting the exhaust.

This. The driveshaft should extend if you pull on it.

Thx. I ended up disconnecting the LH control arms, which allowed the front axle to float. Once connected, I used a ratcheting strap to pull my axles close enough to re-connect the control arms.
