u-joints

I am completely confused on the u-joints and sizes and interchangabilty.

I will be replacing my two piece shafts with newer XJ shafts and want to know whats up with the u-joints.

I will be using a 96+ shaft so i know it has the "larger" u- joints. What are these? Whats the next step up in strength staying in the same size?

Share your knowledge.

I think its like x760 for the spicer number. Or you could just look up what ujoint a 96+ cherokee uses at the parts store

89 Wrangler-3.5" HD BDS lift,M.O.R.E HD 5/8" booms on 35" KM2s
99 Cherokee-2 door,5" lift on 35" KM2s
04 Grand Cherokee Overland

I would just look up a ujoint for a 96+ XJ, but I believe the YJ has a 260 ujoint and the XJ has a 297. The 760s are an upgrade in strength from the 297 if I remember correctly, but they are the same size and are interchangeable.

94 YJ - work in progress
