AzTJ I take it you got the kit from 4x4GroupBuy?

How did you measure your old shaft? Like this?

A stock drive shaft is something like 20"... and does not slip like your new one.

I think the 16" is the fully compressed measurement... try pulling it out and measuring it.

Rear Driveshaft length?

Does anyone know what the Rear CV driveshaft length should be around with an Advance Adapters sye and dana 35 rear axle on a 99 Wrangler? When it was stock it measured 19 1/8 inches, but when i got my new TW driveshaft it's tagged 16 3/4 inches. Sounds kind of short to me. My Wrangler is in the process of being lifted with the RE 4.5 Superflex kit, which going very smoothly might I add. What do you guys think about this Driveshaft situation?
