Drive shaft for 97 TJ

I was looking for a cheap fix for my jeep. I have 1997 Tj with dana 35, 1" tcase drop, 4.5 re lift, and a 4cly manual tranny. I have looked in the local junkyards and classified for a replacement ds with negative results. I was curious if there is any other vehicles that use that same size drive shaft, that would bolt in? Thanks!

Wow, you're still using the stock driveshaft? It's too short for a suspension lift as tall as your RE 4.5", which is more like 5-5.5" in reality.

Have you tried a custom shop yet they really aren't that expensive or so I've been told and Jerry says you need a longer one any way. I'd find out how long and find a shop and see how much it is through them

I found a shop that could do it for $275. I was just seeing if there was the junk ytard fix if you will for it. And I'm looking for the front drive shaft (d30), I put the rear up there(d35). Thanks for the help!
