Wipped out front right axle

I just purchased this 96 JGC 4X4. The front right axle is totaly wipped out I have removed the shaft now I need to fix it. What recommedation do the guru's on this page request. I also noticed that CV boot on left side is twisted.

Should I replace both CV Half shaft and inner seals and fluid?

Of maybe switch to Ujoint style?

I am not completly understanding how the unit goes together because Is all wipped out it looks like the outer bearing is gone.

Does anyone have a good diagram or maybe pics of how this setup is supposed to look so I know what I need.

I could get whole axle and hub assebly at junk yard and replace also or should I diffently by new?

Thanks in advance

If the boot is torn and its clicking im pretty sure its time for it to be replaced altogether.

Word of advice, pay the extra money for the good one. I was cheap in buying one for my driver's side a year ago and last night the joint literally blew apart because of the 249 t-case binding up in a parking lot. The boot on the broken joint was all mangled and twisted, very unlike the other side where the boot was nice and even.

U-joint conversion and 242 case coming soon

Good luck with your new purchase BTW, you will love it.
