Passenger side axle shaft replacement options,not tj

I broke the u joint and the ends of both shafts,and don't want to put in tj shafts, because I'm selling the jeep and don't want to deal with the extra work. I know it's not much extra work. It had aftermarket shafts in it when I bought it but I don't know what kind. Does anybody know where I can get just the axle from the vac disco out? Not stock ones?

why do you need a whole shaft if you only broke the joint?

You either get stock Yj shafts, one piece TJ shafts which require the seal installed or strong chromoly one piece axles.

If you want something stronger in a two piece you would have to source a set of '95 Yj shafts.

Take your pick.

I've tried most manufactures and they aren't offering anything with the vac disco.

in reference to the 95 set, he meant go get some from salvage.

Somebody filled your ears with a bag of dung & you listened.

You were running stock stuff & didn't know it.

Nobody's being a smarty pants, except you.

You haven't found aftermarket two piece axle shafts that are better than the stock ones, because they don't exist

Leave the attitude at the door. This is your only warning.

So where did this magical shaft come from?

I replaced it with a stock shaft from another axle a friend had laying around, and it was no where near the size of this one and had smaller u joints.

I've been warned? I asked for options that weren't stock. Here is one. I just don't know who made it. Do you? No cause they don't make it,right?
