99 tj tummy tucker

i just installed a 4.5 inch rubicon express short arm lift on my 99 tj. i'm looking to buy a tummy tucker skid plate Under Cover Fabworks, LLC - '97-'02 TJ Transfer Case Skid (Ultra High-Clearance)(Carbon Steel)
my question is, will my drive shaft be long enough at full droop or do i have to replace it. its a tom woods drive shaft, i don't have exact measurements at this time. any advice would be helpful

I would ask tom woods how long the driveshaft can safely be. Then jack your jeep off the ground by the rear bumper till the tires are off the ground and measure it. What size lift was the DS made for originally. I had my driveshaft shortened and high speed balanced for 60 bucks, though lengthening costs more.

How long is the effective slip section of the drive shaft and how much is exposed right now? A little trig and you can figure it out without picking up the phone.

It was based off of a 1.75 budget lift that was sagging a little. I will have to get out and measure it and contact tom woods
