put np205 in fsj. took measurements and got front driveshaft made, no problems. rear shaft is another problem. fsj has off set rear axle . wonder if i could take a newer style front cv style driveshaft ( with ball bearings) from a 4x4 trk of maybe like a grand cherokee or 1/2 ton pickup and have shaft made so that the cv shaft is at the axle and regular joint at t-case. have to do this because of the offset to pass side. or does someone have a dana 44 out of a newer wagoneer with 3.54 gears? any ideas

you can have a double CV shaft made by a number of companies (JE Reel, Tom Woods, High Angle Driveline, Driveshaftsuperstore) but they are expensive.  I paid $400 just to have a regular single CV shaft built for the rear of mine.  Probably be cheaper to look around for a centered axle.  If you get lucky and find what you need they are only about $75 at pick and pull.  Worst case, you should be able to find one on craigslist or ebay for less than $200.
