I just went through the same thing with my son's truck. It was showing 2.5 inches, and it ended up ruining the tailshaft bushing and the yoke on the driveshaft. The guy that made me another driveshaft stated only 1/2-1" showing. So, you should be ok.

Yep I was told by the drive shaft people to push in the yoke all the way and pull out 3/4in. Ed ke6bnl this is regular ride height and all the normal weight on the vehicle. E d

An even 1 inch measurement is the standard for street vehicles.

I have seen custom shafts with slip yoke splines up to 24 inches long, but these don't see ANY road time. They'll climb over a 5 foot rock though.
