Which mopar dc driveshaft? And is it made by Dana spicer?

I recently won a 250$ gift card to the local jeep dealership so wanted to put it towards a new mopar aftermarket drive shaft. I have a 2.5”metalcloak lift and with the rock sport shocks and even the exhaust spacers I still need a lot more clearance. So was gonna use the 250 bucks towards a mopar front drive shaft

1. Will the 2” lift mopar dc drive shaft work for my needs?

2. Are they supplied from Dana spicer?

Thanks

Bit of a tangent, but you shouldn't need a lot more clearance with the spacers. I assume you came to that conclusion by dropping the entire front axle while supporting the Jeep from the frame, which does cause exhaust contact with spacers (and probably would even with an aftermarket shaft). But when you do that you're simulating a jump or hanging the entire front end of your Jeep off a ledge while high centered, neither of which is a likely scenario for most people. I had called MetalCloak to ask about this apparent issue myself after installing my lift, they gave me that explanation and I think it makes sense. If you flex in a natural way by raising one front wheel while dropping the other, you shouldn't have contact with the spacers and stock shaft.

That’s kinda what I figured, it just sucks every time I put it on a lift I have to disconnect the front driveshaft. I guess maybe I’ll just have the dealer replace my front driveshaft under warranty it’s got some pulsating around 65mph and a little bit of grease slinging. The only thing I worry about is maxing out the factory rezeppa joint a 1000 miles from home on a Jeep trip.

Should definitely work. Make sure it comes with the yoke kit when you order it.
P/Ns from the Mopar 2in kits as reference.
