YJ driveshafts

I just bought a 92 YJ with a 6 cyl and automatic trans. The jeep has a small shackle lift and is missing it's rear driveshaft. The prior owner blew a U joint, and removed the driveshaft so he could drive it on a trailer. I need to purchase a new driveshaft (prior owner threw it away). Are the driveshafts the same for automatic and manual transmission YJ's? If there is a difference what makes them different?
thanks,

Joe

drive shaft

measure from the center of your diff yoke to the end of your t-case output. sutratct 3/4 of an inch and then go to a local drive shaft shop..you will need a new t-case out put shaft also

I am pretty sure there is a difference between the auto and the manual. The SYE conversion is very popular, which requires a new shaft. There should be plenty of used ones out there if you can find them. Give Ebay a try.

Auto Driveshaft

I am changing my 94 Sahara with automatic over to an AX15 manual transmission. It is apart now so I am not driving it anyway. I have a rear driveshaft that I will not need. If you have someone going north or south on I-95, I live about 7 miles off of the expressway just below Savannah, GA. I could meet up and send it. Commercial shipping may be a hassle but let me know.
