For purposes of an sye install, the 91-95 years have been confirmed to work well. Others may work. You will need to have it cut down to fit.

i HAD a front shaft from a 93 zj (as far as i know same joints just different length as xj). but i exploded it doing burnouts on dry pavement on 31"s in 2wd. oops, now i have a temporary front wheel drive yj. off the top of my head i think the measurement for the rear DS length at ride height is somewhere around 16"-17" range on stock suspension with a sye.
