offset rear 60 = vibes???

here's the deal
i scored a rear FF D60 that fits 35 spline axles...only problem is the pinion is offset to the passenger side by 3.25 inches.
I hope this axle will work under an xj running the stock 231 w/sye. The stock 44 pinion is only offset by an inch or less.
Reason for question is this jeep will be street driven to and from the trails.

Just wondering if anyone knows if i will get driveline vibes at highway speed??
Anybody else run offset axles on the street?

It'll vibrate, and it'll wear out u-joints prematurely, IMO. Rule of thumb is you can run one inch offset for each 20" of driveshaft.

I kinda doubt you're running a 65" driveshaft in a XJ.
