Front "CV" driveshaft problems (newb) '99 GC

My fiancee's jeep has a bad front driveshaft - CV boots on each end - 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee 6cyl.

After much research on this forum I have found a few options to replacing the front CV driveshaft assembly. I need a little guidance as to what should be done.

I am all for doing it right the first time but I'm unsure which option to take. This jeep will never hit the trail and will never get a lift for the rest of it's life.


I have read about Carolina Driveline as well as Iron Rock Offroad, both having replacement driveshafts available. Is there an alternative? or, Is there a junkyard find that will do the trick?

Looking to exhaust all options before I decide. Thanks in advance.

Junkyard is going to be your cheapest option. You should be able to find a CV style shaft for less than $50.

Thanks,

Found a driveshaft at the local junkyard. They are delivering it to my work, hopefully it's in good shape.

Isn't red the only color a vehicle should be?
If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.
