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?

Just did my steering shaft. The bearing needs to ordered seperate. There are several options as far as places to purchace the shaft. This one is a stock replacement. There are also heavy duty options available if you feel the need.

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....
