front driveshaft problems

I just installed RE drop brackets, superflex fixed lower and superflex udjustable upper control arms on my 01, 5 speed, 231 xj. I also swapped in a 96 high pinnion D30 and Skyjacker 6" coils. My problem is that now my factory front driveshaft is not even long enough to install. Are there any factory front driveshafts that would be long enough for my application?
TIA, Eric

Is that a colapsed or extended measurement?

You could always just get it retubed mine only cost 75 bucks and the local bone yard wanted 100 for the one out of a grand cherokee which would have worked perfectly.
