1jeeplvr Thanks for all the info everyone.If Im reading that correctly Jerry,the u joints are the same front & rear.Sooo Ill get 5-1310x joints for the front & replace my rear u joint with the new factory replacement that I have & keep the other one in the TJ in case I brake one on the trail.I figure put the stronger ones up front & keep the extra factory one for the rear since replacing a rear on the trail wouldent be bad.Now doing a front one would be a real PITA!

The 5-760x is only used on the front axle shafts.
There we go, I couldn't remember the drive shaft #s.

Jerry Bransford TJs all use the same 5-297x with Rubicons coming with the newer stronger 5-760x axleshaft u-joint which is the same size. A good choice for replacements would be the Spicer 5-760x which is a stronger and more durable version of the
the 5-297x that the factory installs.

TJ drive shafts all use 1310 size u-joints, front and rear. The Rubicon uses slightly different size u-joints (1310/1330) and they vary a tad depending on which model year Rubicon.

They are different. Front replacements for axle should be spicer 5-760 I think

GoldenSahara00 Nope. Let me look quick.

mrpowerz13 They're different, I just can't think of the part numbers. I'm sure someone will post the correct parts in several different vendors.
