Non CV Front D-shaft?

I'm about ready to order some driveshafts for my TJ. I just put a 5.9 and 46RE trans, with a Stak D300 Replace-A-Case. I have a 33Engineering flattish belly, with about a 4 inch lift, HPD30 in front. I'll soon be putting in an AAM 9.25, which is another HP axle.

I need to have a small-diameter front d-shaft made for the front, and if I make it non-CV it will help with the clearance. I know the CJs and YJs aren't CV, and I also know there is a maximum operating angle for the U-joints. Question is, can I use a non-CV front d-shaft in the front? Also, is the max operating angle 5 degrees per joint?
98 TJ 5.9, stretched, big axles.
