swapping front drive shaft to rear

would it work if you got a stock front cv shaft aand had it cut to length to fit the rear after a hack and tap?

or is it that you must have the slip in the shaft

I know a few guys who used front TJ shafts in rear when stretching their rigs. Like said above, it would work fine.

front TJ shaft has a slip in it. it will work just fine, it's not any weaker, especially after you get it re-tubed.

I cut down my rock damaged front DS and used it for the rear. I keep it as a spare now but it worked fine.
