Rear Driveshaft compatibility for 93 YJ

My Rear driveshaft busted and now I'm looking for a replacement part, but as I search, I am seeing that there are different lengths of shafts. My part is off a 93 wrangler, 4 cylinder, 4x4, manual trans, with a 3" susp. lift, and 4" block lift. The shaft from ubolt to ubolt is about 15 & 3/8" long, and about 22" total with the NP231 universal slip yoke. What I was wondering was, is it possible to put a rear driveshaft from a 6 cylinder, manual into our 4 cylinder manual, or are there any other driveshafts that are compatible with ours?

Center to center of joint ? driveline is all measured center to center, not sure what a u bolt measurement is

If you need 15" you could find a longer shaft visit your local driveline shop and have it shortened.

Thanks, but i found one the same length as mines. I was talking about the length the to shaft itself, not including the slip yoke. Plus we only have one machine shop here and they charge an arm and a leg for that kind of work.
