Do you have the Superlift driveshaft? Its made to handle that angle if you do have it, it won't hurt it.

or you can get an adapter made for the bolt pattern of a jeep rear drive shaft, go by a drive train place and pick up a u joint made to go between the ranger D35 yoke and that drive shaft and bam not $400!

i spent about $75 50 on the shaft and about 25 on the ujoint.
granted i didnt pay anything for the adapter
