Adams Driveshafts makes a great shaft and outstanding customer service.

above 4 inches, you will need a lot more than just drive shafts. what size tire are you trying to fit?

Well I heard for sure you need a new front shaft, and possibly a rear. I was wondering if a JLU rear shaft would work for a lifted 2 door. Any thoughts? I have heard Of Adams. Anyone have an idea on cost for a front shaft?
Planning on running 37s. Have the HD rear.

The front for a JK was $450-$500. North ridge 4x4 is a vendor for Adams. They could help you out.
I doubt a rear stock 4 door shaft will work.

It’s not the shaft lenght that’s the problem when lifting our two doors, its the angle. it doesn’t have any ujoints in the rear just these Flexi joint boot things. What they do is convert it to a regular style drive shaft with ujoints and flange adapters. The front driveshaft has one ujoint and one Flexi joint. No way the stock four-door driveshaft fits in the 2 Door way too long.
