Should be 1330 I believe. Measure it and let me know.

... find some of my recent threads as I think 94' and 95' is the same.

it depends on which flange you got. most likely you got the 1310 one as the 1330 are less common. what i would do is just see if your u-joint fits. if not you will either need a new rear driveshaft (93 and older wranglers used the smaller 1310 u-joints; so go junk yard hunting) or you can buy a specialized adapter u-joint that has both 1330 and 1310 sizes on it, this may be the cheapest way.

I re-read the first post... which flange are you talking about? The one that attaches to your driveshaft? If that's the one you are refering to then I think you have the 1310 as my 1330 flange is about 4" so I would assume the 3.5" flange is for the 1310. You can get online and order a u-joint that is 1330 on one side and 1310 on the other so you could bolt it up. I think they might also sell them at autozone and the like but can't confirm that.... then buy 2 so you can have one as a spare.

Or you can just buy a 1330 flange. I think mine was $30 a few weeks ago. By the time you buy a "HD" u-joint, you won't spend that much more to get the flange and reuse your u-joint.

I have heard that there is a flange from the Aerostar van that will let you use the orginal u-joint. But that may only apply to pre-94 Wranglers since Jeep changed the u-joint in '94. Might be worth looking into.
