Could someone help me understand this craigslist post?(regarding sye and drive shaft)

Was browsing my local craigslist and found this: jeep slip yoke rear drive shaft

It's a pretty vague post and I'm not incredibly knowledgeable about drive shafts, etc. but I know that for $50 it's worth looking into.

I guess what I want to know is are there different variations to the driveshaft/sye that make is specific to different years?

Also is this DIYable? I know I sound pretty ignorant but I would have 2 people who actually know what they're doing helping me out

Thanks for any and all help

Sounds like he just has the shaft with no u-joints, and it will fit a jeep fitted with a SYE kit. But he didnt include how long it was.

Ahh I miss read it, I read it as it would fit a jeep wrangler, and included a sye but no u joints. I guess I assumed because Tom Woods sells sye kits and drive shaft combo deals, right?

Good point, figured I'd ask here first since it would be a couple hour drive to go see it/pick it up

Get a picture. From my vantage point, it's a double cardan drive shaft--ie, the yoke on the drive shaft bolts up to a fixed output yoke. So it will not slide onto a stock slip yoke. It's probably got a 1310 H yoke but if it was originally for a Rubicon, it has a 1330 flange. And finally, you have no idea how long it is.

For $50, I'd buy it if it's indeed a double cardan drive shaft. At the very least, you can complete it with a centering kit and u joints and re-sell it. Or use it once you take care of the the t-case tail housing.
