2008 server reinstalls.

I'm almost about ready to start reinstalling my OS's on my domain controllers.  My question is once I run adprep/forest and domainprep.  Is there an type of time limit for actually redoing or adding a 2008 domain controller???

There's no time limit in any way at all. You can run the forest- and domain-prep procedures using ADPrep and then demote, format, install and promote the new 2008 DCs at your leisure.

During the procedure, be sure you always have the FSMO roles on a live Domain Controller, you always have at least 1 server acting as a Global Catalog, and that there is at least 1 server which clients can access for DNS lookups. Ideally, once the procedure is completed you clearly require redundancy in these roles.
