xj driveshaft?

I've read a few times about people using xj drive shaft. I haven't read anything that clearly states what works and what doesn. I'm not familiar with these drive shaft , do they have a slip yoke a transfer case? Are they longer?

I get a little vibration at 30-40 but it goes away at highway speed.

Soa with stock springs. I moved the rear forward to compensate for driveshaft length.
I'd love to move it back and strech it, just can't afford a custom drive shaft right now

the xj front drive shaft has a cv at the t-case. being that it's a front it will be longer than a stock yj rear. the shaft will have to be shortend but that's a lot cheaper than haveing a complete one made. the rear yoke has to be for a cv. so a slip yoke eleminator has to be used.
