Will this work to cut down for my sye driveshaft?

It's listed as a 2004 Grand Cherokee shaft. Will it work to have cut down for my sye shaft? If so, what else will I need to make it work? Not going to put it in with my d35, but want to have it for my 8.8 upgrade.

Yes it'll work but ur gona Piss sum WJ owners off if they see it. The ujoint style shafts r hard to come by off the wj's, I have a friend that's been looking for one for like half a year haha. He'd prob kill for that shaft so he can use his 4wd again, they come with a shaft that doesn't have ujoints for the most part n wj owners who r lifted all go around looking for them. U may b able to sell it n make sum coin but I don't no what u paid for it in the first place.

Given that the ujoints are the same size and it mates to your SYE, it'll be just fine.

If you don't mind, what's the length on that from front U-joint to the back U-joint?

The grand Cherokees are some odd ball size od smaller than xj. I had one I was going to use for my front shaft and the shop told me it was odd sized and would have to special order it and it was going to be $$$$$ so I went and pulled another XJ shaft from the jy. Not all WJ have that kind of shaft.

So is anyone actually running one of these? Did you run into problems trying to get it shortened?
Thanks in advance for any help.

I run a XJ shaft which is basically the same thing just bigger diameter tube. No problem getting it shortened as long as you have a competent guy balancing it you should have no problems
