That sounds like a long drivetrain for a tj. Any wheelbase stretch planned?

if you can get rid of the 435 output adapter (10" or so) it will be pretty compact. i think the dodge 435's didnt use that long adapter, so its probably fine, about the same length as a stock trans/tcase.

Possibly 3" out back and 2-3" front.

Ive heard the cad axles lack nothing in strength compared to noncad. Adds complication mebbe... Lock the cad and use lockouts and youll never know its under there. Or use what youve got and plan for a swap later on.
