Check ebay, or buy one from Northridge 4x4 or 4x4Rockshop. Any of the online places should carry them.

Did you and them remeber to remove the clips on the u-joints... I had a friend that forgot this little step since they were all dirty and endup up bending the ears when using the Ball Joint press.

Run to the junkyard and find a dana 30 in a jeep and pull it. Never bad ot have extra shafts laying around either.

The part you're looking for is commonly called the outer stub shaft and the TJ Dana 30's is the same as what is on the Rubicon's front Dana 44. :)
