Drive shaft now or wait?

I put the RK 3.5 max factor lift on my 15 Sahara a couple months ago. I'm planning on ordering a dynatrac 44 for the front towards summer and possibly one at the same time for the rear. If I were to purchase a couple of Adams drive shafts now for my current setup will they work with the new axle(s) as well? There is nothing currently wrong with either existing shaft but it sadly comes down to playing the monthly $ appropiation game with my wife.

If you are considering having 1310 or 1350 yokes on the new axles, then I would wait to make sure the driveshafts are ordered to match.

As you currently sit, you would be stuck using the factory style yokes.

My front driveshaft lasted 8 months with that lift and 35s on my 14 Willys. If you aren't wheeling super hard with it, it should last till you get your axles.

I would definitely wait. You will want to take new length measurements with the new axle

Appreciate the informed input. I kinda thought it would be best to wait but needed to hear it rather than guess.

wait, I have a 44 rockjock im building right now. You will need to measure after you get the axle installed. the 30 and 44 aren't even close to the same size.
