TJ Drive shafts onto Rubicon Axles

Will standard TJ drive shafts (1999 model) fit onto Rubicon axles without alterations?

Nope. The driveshafts are too long. It's done though using a SYE, or long arms. Depends what modifications are going on with your Jeep.

Rubicon axles have a 1330 joint at the pinion too.

All in all it's not a difficult swap. You just need to deal with that extra inch or so with the shaft, and get those double u-joint deals. That 1330/1310 combo
