Post jeep grand cherokee front drive shaft
Hey everyone,
   I need a longer front driveshaft on my XJ. I have a 6.5" lift with Clayton Longarms. The stock shaft was extended all the way but I am going to move my axle forward about 2 more inches. I read somewhere that a front drive shaft from a ZJ will fit on an XJ and is about 3-4" longer which would be just about perfect. I'm just not sure what years and drivetrain combo to look for in a ZJ. I wanna say I read somewhere possibly a 1994-1997? I was gonna have my shaft extended but its trashed.
Thanks everybody!

The U-joints would fit, but I don't know if the length of the shaft is any longer.   The 4.0 shaft is longer than the V8 shafts if that helps.  

The problem you'll run into is that a LOT of them have Rzeppa-style CV joints on one or both ends instead of U-joints.

By the time that you go to all of the trouble with finding one that might work, you could have had yours lengthened.  Should only cost you around $100 or so to have it done.
