Rubicon driveshaft on 97 Sport

Is this possible to even do or sensible? I want a cv driveshaft and sye due to a 4" lift and eliminating my transfer case drop. I can get ahold of a rubicon driveshaft cheap in good shape with good u joints. I know that my stock joints on my d35 are size 1310 and the rubi is 1330. I have found u combo 1310 and 1330 ujoints that should make this possible I think. The driveshaft also does not have the fixed yoke either so I would have to buy a sye to put in as well. Would this be possible to retrofit and even worth it or should
I just go with a sye and Tom woods driveshaft? Also I don't even know if what I'm saying is correct, I've tried to make sense of all this just from reading different threads.

I have stock d30 and d35 axles with 3.07 gears and am going to regear to 4.56, lock, and upgrade rear to ford 8.8 in the future.

Being that I own a Rubicon I would say get the SYE and a Tom Wood's driveshaft. The stock Rubicon driveshaft is fine but the Tom Wood's driveshaft is far better. It would be better in the long run anyway.

Edit: after reading the last post you just made I would definitely go with a Tom Woods driveshaft.

Ok that is what I figured but it is so tempting with such a great deal on the rubi driveshaft. Thanks for the heads up.

If you can't afford that combo now I would save for it. It will be worth it.

The Rubicon drive shaft is not a double cardan shaft therefore causes drive line vibrations.

Read this, explains a lot: What is a CV shaft and why do I want one? - JeepForum.com
