So I have read several threads about using an XJ front driveshaft to replace the rear driveshaft on my YJ after I install my SYE, but I have read conflicting info about what year donor vehicle I need to look for.
I know a custom shaft is the best way to go but I need something to get me by until I get my D44 built and ready to install. I don't want to have to buy 2 different shafts but the local pick a part is having a half off sale this weekend so if I can get the right xj shaft for cheap and have it cut down I could have the project done for around $50-$75.
This would allow me to get my SYE installed as soon as it comes in instead of having to wait till I put in the d44 which could be several months down the road.

Add long as it's not more than 100 I'm good as long as I can figure out which XJ shaft I need to pull from the pick a part.
Any driveshaft will work, as long as its double cardan and at least 20" or so long.
Can also use a front driveshaft from an explorer, a front driveshaft from another Wrangler, or a front driveshaft from a Grand Cherokee, as long as it has u-joints and not the funky CV joints. Just to name a few other alternatives.
