CV axle??

Hi all I'm currently looking at a 2001 TJ for a great price. But it needs a CV axle or shaft or whatever it's called. I'm not sure what it is. But if the part is worth buying to install I'd rather do that. The jeep has 137k miles and from the pictures looks very mint. Is it worth buying? Or are these signs that the jeep has been abused?

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

The lady was dumb as fuk. I asked "ok what's a cv axle?". Her respond was "I really don't know, I'm not a mechanic research it".
I'll call her back and ask what exactly is that part. I'll let you know

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

People in glass houses . . .

Do you know the difference between a stock axle shaft, an aftermarket axle shaft with a CV joint, a CV driveshaft and ujoint? Seems like would have been pretty easy to ask a couple questions and figure out what she meant.

Like I said I don't really know what's a "cv axle" but after a little research I'm pretty sure she meant to say CV shaft or a joint.

Any how from the looks of it I can get this item with ease and also get it installed by my mechanic.
