Im not sure what you are talking about. Are you talking about the shift cable? or the steering shaft, the one that goes from the steering column to the steering box?

Welcome, and why would you get thrown off the site for asking a question?...

Your steering wheel is connected to a steering column.
That column has a shaft in the middle.

That shaft connects to another shaft in the engine bay.
Those two shafts connect to each other via a Universal Joint.
That is the 'Steering Universal'.

Between the steering column and the steering box is a shaft in a tube arrangment.
The rod will telescope into the tube to absorb a front impact if you ever get hit head on.
That piece is commonly referred to as the steering 'Shaft'.

At the end of the steering shaft, there will be another 'Universal' joint to connect it to the steering box.
It may be a 'Rag' joint, which is basically a tire side wall piece that flexes with misalignment of the two pieces (Shaft & Box),
OR,
It might be a 'Knuckle' joint, which is some metal pieces with a steel sleeve over them.

For pricing on parts, have a look at places like FWD Hardware or Quadratech or some of the other Jeep parts suppliers.
