Beginners Shaft

My U-joints are shot on the steering shaft and I thought I should replace the lower shaft bearing at the same time. I'm unsure if a new shaft comes with the bearing. Do I need to order shaft and bearing rebuild kit or just get shafted?

If it had a hamburger on it, I bet you could find it.

Does anyone know how to get the steering shaft off the YJ? I took the bolts out and cant seem to get it off. Is there a special handshake I need to do with it before it comes off? I'm replacing it and really dont care if i cut it, but I want to make sure that the new one goes on smoothly! Please help if you can....
