It has a 2" torsion bar lift so should I get some 2" longer?
Really good chance this is why the axle broke. At some point with the key lift you exceeded the operational range of the CV joint and caused it to bind up. These factory joints are not high angle units like that used in the Jeep Liberty for example, those are referred to as a DO(double offset).
