U Joint questions!

I have a 03 TJ-X and I need new front and rear U joints. I was looking to upgrade, but I don't know what the best upgrade is. I have upgraded internals and I keep going through U joints.. anybody have any suggestions on a stronger option?

Driveshaft u-joints? If so, Spicer's 5-1310x is an excellent direct replacement that is both stronger and more durable. Are you experiencing drivetrain vibrations? If so, what is your suspension lift height?

Yes I am, I have a 3 inch suspension lift with 33 inch tires. I pulled the u joints today and the ends are all ovals.. so its definitely time to replace them!
