Grand Cherokee Drive shaft/CV Shaft

Has anyonre ever used a front grand cherokee driveshaft for a rear shaft on a CJ5. I am going SOA on a CJ5 and I was told the front shaft out of a grand cherokee is a CV shaft and will work if it is shortened. Can anyone confirm this?

oops

sorry I rechecked my notes... He said a front driveshaft out of a "baby cherokee" (2 door I assume) not a grand cherokee.

I've got a front shaft out of an XJ. It's a standard 1310 Double Cardan shaft. I haven't cut it down yet but it looks like it's gonna work fine. You'll need a CV output yoke to mount it up.

CV yoke?

Isn't it just a u-joint at both ends of the shaft? Why a different yoke?

The CV yoke uses bolts not straps or U-bolts... The holes are also farther apart. I've got a Grand Cherokee DS for my front shaft.
