Need help identifying parts please.

Today's snow and ensuing traffic fiascoes in Alabama has prompted me to compose this request for my fellow ZJ owners and forum readers.

I posted about 4 months ago that someone had removed the front drive parts from my ZJ before I purchased it. Shame on me for not checking this when I purchased but it's water under the proverbial bridge now so please go easy on me. I have confirmed that the transfer case is functioning and would like to look into replacing the missing parts. However, I have no idea where to start. I have the parts manuals, service manuals, and some other stuff but it all appears to be a little confusing as to what was actually installed on the 5.9 Limited model.

Attached is a picture of the parts (highlighted in yellow) that are missing from my Jeep. Basically, I would just like someone to give me a comprehensive list of the major components needed (including part numbers if possible), compatibility with other models (if any) and where I can purchase them used online or at a junk yard.

I appreciate any feedback.

Clarification: Basically, I need everything between the transfer case and front chunk and both axles coming out of the front chunk to the front wheels. Apologies, for the elementary description.

The parts you need are:

- Front drive shaft, either CV style (if your axle has a yoke that is round and has 6 bolt holes in it) or U-joint style if you've got a regular 4-hole yoke. Parts from 5.2 do interchange, as far as I know.
- Left/right axle shafts, either CV style or u-joint style (depends on what you'd prefer, CV joints are smoother but u-joints are more robust) with ABS tone rings. They interchange between most jeeps with D30 front axle.

Chances are, you'd need a transfer case rebuild/swap, as they are known to have viscous coupling fail at 150k+ miles, and possibly a diff rebuild. That could both be reasons why the previous owner pulled the parts.

Check the classified section for someone parting out a GC. You should be able to get the parts you need.

5.9 had a CV style front shaft from the factory.

You saying you don't have axleshafts inside the front axle? Take a look and see if there are stub shafts and the large 36mm nut centered in unit bearing. If you have none.. don't drive it. Unit bearing will separate and toss a wheel out from under the rig.
