Steering shaft?

78 CJ7 with what seems to be an aftermarket power steering box. Removed the old steering shaft from the column to the steering box. Order same (or what I thought) shaft with the rubber boot at bottom of shaft but noticed the keyway on the new shaft did not match the old shaft or the box. I noticed I had ordered a steering shaft for a manual steering box. I ordered a shaft for a power steering box and it fits. Question is, the end of the shaft is not booted and instead has a universal joint. Has anyone ran into this before?

Should have one of these. Sounds like someone swapped out the original for an aftermarket joint.

That is what I ordered first but the keyway was wrong. Possible that Summit has the wrong part referenced
