Yoke on XJ

I was wondering if the front axle yoke on an XJ D30 could be swapped out or onto a YJ front axle? The reason I ask is that I'd like to replace the front driveshaft with the cardan style. I already have the yoke to replace on the transfer case, but can I use the strap style already in place on the axle? The front DS splines are worn to the point of rubbing the exhaust. And the angle is very severe.

My plan is to replace the front DS, do the SYE, and drive for the day or two on the front axle while the rear DS is being built, keeping the D35 till the 8.8 swap and do the rear shaft again. Or should I wait until I have a pile of parts, then do it all at once?

would save you time and money in the long run to wait until you've got the 8.8 ready, THEN do the rear DS

as far as I know, the YJs front pinion yoke should be fine as long as it's not damaged
