I am counting in about 1/2" lowering with the new bed I am putting on.

" If the point is right there at the back of the fuel tank/crossmember that we can see in the picture, the driveshaft at that point is only going to move about 1/2 or a little less of that 4-1/2" axle travel, so I think you'd be good?? "

The 4 1/2" travel is based on the angle from center axel to transmission and the clearance that I have at the point directly under the bracket. Actual clearance at that point is more like 1 1/2".
