whitebuffalo to measure mine, i measured center of yoke to center of yoke while it was sitting level. then flexed it out to see how much longer/shorter it would get under articulation. then i went to the DS shop and told them all of it and the guy kind of winged it from there . i had a new front one built when i first spooled the front b/c the stocker was thin, flimsy, and crooked as a southern politician. when i went SOA i had to get my fornt one lengthened and had my new (to me) rear shaft shortened. knock on wood i have had no problems with either of them....

If you are buying a whole new front shaft, you might as well go with an aftermarket from a reputable company like Tom Woods. If you go to their website, you will find instructions on what you need to measure to order the proper length shaft for your Jeep.

X2 you can remove the front shaft until you get a new one, and still drive around. Plus it will eliminate the possiblity of you putting it in 4wd and hurting anything.

front driveshaft...

...I need one, my 04 tj is lifted 6 inches, i think, has SYE and new rear driveshaft, but stock front. If i grab near the boot there is a good 1/4 inch of play. Until i get my hands on new driveshaft, is it ok to drive around with out one at all? I figured that be better than leaving the worn out one on their and possibly wering at a pinion bearing, but i wanted to be sure.
