I'm assuming your running a 1BL?? You might save your self some time and start fitting that T-case and it's connections, breathers, and linkage on your tub while fitting your skid before you get rear drive shaft. Your going to need a double cardon shaft for the rear if your running a flat skid anyway so you might as well just see where your DS angle is at that WB and get it once if ya can, might even get super lucky and get that BB back on without changing your rear pinion angle and just getting a rear shaft...but I doubt it.

FWIW you should be able to move that T-case up from it's factory/stock position (with a BL) a good 1.5 inches and use a factory Rubi/LJ DS without a problem.

your front DS should be fine.
I'm curious if I will be able to use front, it just seems like a lot of lift on the tcase for it to reach the same. If so I'll be happy.
