front driveshaft question

Had a guy blow a front shaft while out wheeling and was thinking about carrying a spare one In the toolbox that goes with me. My question is it is much easier to find parts off of xjs around here than tjs so I was wondering is anyone knew whether or not an xj front shaft would work on a tj so I could pick one up and rebuild it and keep for peace of mind but don't wanna fool with it if it won't work.

You want to carry around a whole driveshaft?

Why don't you just rebuild yours with some quality spicer joints, then keep some extras in your glove box when you go wheeling? they take what? 20 minutes to replace the joint including removing the shaft.

That's what I do now only reason I want a spare is because when his broke it broke the joint and let the shaft come loose and damaged the shaft itself. He was done for the day and where I wheel is like 2 hrs from home so I would rather have a spare to prevent a ruined day of wheeling. And I meant to say in the toolbox on my trailer not in the jeep
