If the pinion angle is correct after the stretch, then the longer driveshaft would help. Essentially it would be the same as the sye so I am not sure why you are saying that a longer driveshaft would cause vibration.

With that long of a stretch you will need to extend the frame out for the hangars, do some cutting, change your pinion angle, and get some longer brake lines. You may also want to think about the additional clearance you will need, specifically taller tires, due to the additional length and the changed breakover angle.

The slip yoke shouldn't have anything to do with vibrations, you want 10" stretch in just the rear?

I forgot about the gas tank. You will have to do something about that too. If you go soa then you will also end up doing a good bit to the front right now including a high steer setup. Or at least thats my thoughts on it.

I have mine stretched 10" in the rear and 1.5" in the front and it works pretty well. On the rear i have the shackle mounts welded to the rear bumper and I used a set of hd spring hangers up front. On the front I left the springs in the stock location and redrilled the spring perches and plates to move the front forward. It is sprung over using stock springs.

I had a set of 3.5 lift XJ springs SUA on the back of my TJ. This gave me about 4" of lift and 7" stretch. I did not have a SYE or a dropped t-case and it worked great.
