I have an 86 samurai 2wd model that i've been converting to 4wd. I put in the new transfer case, and a new spoa front axle. I bought a driveshaft off ebay, saying all driveshafts were the same. I went to bolt it in and its about 3 inches too short fully extended. The space between the differential flange and transfer case flang is 33".
Any suggestions?

I have driveshaft spacers that lengthen mine about 3". Check out any of the 'zuki stores, Rocky Road, Breeze industries, Calmini they are cheap and although not as good as a proper custom drive shaft I have never had any problems with mine with all the abuse I put mine through.

3" is pretty much the maximum you want to extend using spacers... If it's your lift and/or you have moved the axle forward enough to require that much extension you should really consider ordering an aftermarket shaft (and consider longer spline travel). Or going to a longer Toyota shaft using Rat Adapters from Rock 4X Fabrication.
