Driveshaft help!

Hey guys, so I recently bought a 1310 CV driveshaft on eBay (Tatton's) and he emailed me asking some questions and I honestly have no idea what to say considering I'm a serious rookie about this stuff. He asked: I will need a driveshaft length. center of the ujoint cap on the transfer case yoke to the center of the ujoint cap on
the diff yoke. close is good. The driveshaft is for a 1997 XJ. Any help would be greatly appreciated guys, thanks!

Easiest is get a tape measure and crawl under.

If you measure yoke mounting face to yoke mounting face that will work too. I think on Tom Wood's website there are some pictures on measuring that you might be able to find and might help.

Thanks man. I'll give it a shot..do the measurements matter if I've yet to lift the Jeep? Wouldn't be surprised if that's an idiotic question.

Not a bad question at all. Are you lifting soon? If doing a lift, wait till lift on. Or take measurements now and use pythagorean theorem to determine what they will be post lift.

Yep, lifting it up 4.5" along with 33s. I'll probably just wait until I have it lifted, hopefully in the next week or so, not a huge fan of seeing it all stock lol.
