You can get the Yoke thru most drivetrain places or even 4wd.com

I bought mine from Iron Rock Offroad out of (MN). I bought the upgraded U-Bolt version instead of the straps.

There's no real need to upgrade u-joint sizes unless doing some serious stuff or have some HP & Torque

Call Tom Wood at Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shafts - Tom Woods Custom Drive Shafts Custom Driveshafts Specialist and he will take care of you. Just tighten the new nut (ask Tom for a new pinion nut too) to 160-180 ft-lbs. and you'll be fine. Tell him I sent you, he'll take good care of you.

Done as I explained, it's easily done. Block the front and rear wheels, shift into 4x4 so the front tires will help prevent the Jeep from rolling as you do this, then use a long breaker bar and 1 1/8" socket to remove the old nut, then pull the broken yoke off. Then apply a little grease to the splines of the pinion shaft, slip the new yoke on and tighten the new pinion nut down to 160-180 ft-lbs. This does not affect the backlash between the ring & pinion gears at all.
