I have a YJ with RE SOA springs up front and XJ springs in the back. My jeep has a lot of travel for leafs and I don't think I use more than 4" of travel in either driveshaft. I think you will be fine with a standard 6" travel shaft. If you have to use bumpstops or limit straps. I did both because at full droop most rear shafts will bind with that much droop.
