Front axle shaft U-joint question

I have a do I tell what size my u joints are on the ends of my stock front axle? They're wasted and winter is almost here..... gotta replace 'em now. Local Jeep dealer says factory Mopar parts have 2 sizes... 1.0625 dia and 1.125 dia. Can I use my VIN number to cross reference it? Is there a ID tag on the axle somewhere that I can use? It's my DD and I don't want to rip apart my front end without having the right parts to begin with....

'95+ uses the bigger Ujoints. You '96 would use a Spicer 5-760x series axle-shaft U joint.

All the U joints in the front and rear DS are 1310 series U joints.
