Rear Drive Shaft U-Joints

Does anyone know what the Spicer Part Number is for the two (stock) U-joints on the rear (main) drive shaft of a 1999 Wrangler with a Dana 35c dif.?

Use a Spicer 5-1310x which is a nice direct-fit stronger/more durable upgrade to the Spicer that is in there now.

Thanks, I'm out of town right now and don't even have access to the Jeep, but wanted to get them ordered so they'd be there when I get back. Appreciate the help...

The 5-785x wasn't all that old when it was suddenly discontinued & replaced by the 5-1310x, that makes me wary that perhaps the 5-785x had some kind of a problem.

The 153x is still around if you want a greasable 1310 size u-joint. The 5-785x and 5-1310x are both sealed.
