Spicer u-joints

I installed TJ axles in the heep and I'm looking for replacement u-joints to carry on the trail with me.

I can't find Spicer, all I can find are precision and neapco. The precision cost more than the neapco, I assume they're better.

I can't find Spicer anywhere, maybe a drive shaft shop would carry them.

The dealership does carry spicer u joints in Mopar boxes.
Really though if you are looking for trail spares either one of the others will do.
Just from my exsperance though you are wasting your time carring just spare u joints for the axle shafts. When ever I have broke a axle u joint it has always taken out at least one of the axle shafts along with it.

I carry complete spare set ups.
Wheel off, caliper off, 3 bolts and the shaft is out. slide in new complete shaft with u joint and hub. Bolt in , re assemble and go.

yea, I know I need spare axles but can't find any, odds are I'll break the axle but I would like a spare u-joint with me/ I'll try the dealer.

Thanks.
