Help?!: What axle shafts do I have?

I'm trying to sell my front axle shafts on E-bay. I have a dana 30. Do I have narrow or wide track axle shafts? People are asking me but I don't know for sure. Any help is appreciated.

Also, if they came out of a CJ5 they are narrow track no matter what year it is. No CJ5 ever had wide track axles.

Edit: Just measured a set of narrowtrack shafts I have and the short side inner shaft is 14 1/4" from the splined end to the center of the yoke where the ujoint goes. The long side is 27 3/16" measured the same way. Wide tracks will be about 2" longer per side. Outer shaft lengths don't matter since narrow and wide use the same outer.
