You will need a U joint yoke for the front axle and a single/double cardan front driveshaft.

What he said.

Change out the front yoke - get one on the boards or from a junkyard, and any driveline shop can slap it on for you in a jiffy.

Get a front driveshaft from either a ZJ with a u-jointed shaft, or an XJ. Swap it in.

They're more likely on a 4.0 ZJ. You should be alright at 3.5" with a stock length driveshaft out of a 96-98 4.0 ZJ. The 93-95 ZJ's with a 5.2 and 249 have the longest driveshaft out of all the factory ZJ's as far as I know.

That's the double cardan yoke for the driveshaft. That will not bolt up to your axle. You need something that looks like this:

Driveshafts typically have a slip joint built in so they can extend with the suspension. Is this what you're thinking of?
