Driveshaft compatibility when swapping in Rubicon t-case?

So I have a 2012 Sport with the 2.72:1 low range and I'm looking at swapping in a Rubicon t-case. (Yes, I understand the different input shafts for the auto vs manual on the 2012+ cases so I know what I'm looking for.

My only question is whether there is a difference in drive shafts between a sport and a Rubicon. Does anyone know for sure? I'm probably going to get a set of aftermarket drive shafts as it is. But before I do, I'll probably connect my stock driveshafts so I can get the Jeep back on the road over the weekend. That is, assuming they will connect with no problem. Does anyone know for sure?

Cool, thanks guys. I've been debating back and forth between doing a Rubicon case swap or going all the way for an Atlas 4 speed.

Thing is, I can do the rubi case swap in a weekend and use it to see if I like it. If I don't like it, I can probably sell the case for what I paid and put it towards an Atlas. It'll be even easier since the first round doesn't have to involve drive shafts.
