XJ and zj front driveshaft are exactly the same. I would go with the TJ shaft but they are really hard to find at a jy

Just curious to why you had to install a ZJ yoke. Are the ZJ driveshafts different from YJs?

With the dc joint you need a specific yoke

Do all YJs not come with front DC yokes?

Yup, I assume since the yj had the vacuum disconnect they didn't feel the front drive shaft needed it.

Uhhg, seems like I'm never going to get a good driveshaft. The shop is giving me crap about the length, telling me it will be too weak if it's lengthened to 41". I told them the stock yj driveshaft is like 39" long and they told me it must have been lengthened because the factory wouldn't do that. Sooooo, frustrating. After I proved to them I was correct, took the stock shaft up there and showed them, they then told me the zj driveshaft I brought had bad splines...... I guess I'll try to get it lengthened somewhere else.

Because of the thickness of tubing? The Tatton's that I ordered was 42.25" long, 2" .188 wall I think. Maybe it is only .120...

They said it was because of the od of the tube being small but after they saw the stock yj shaft I guess they changed there mind and tried to find something else for me to spend money on.
