Axle shaft u-joints and clips

What is the stock axle shaft u-joint for a D30 on a '15 JK? Is it still 5-297x?

I'm trying to replace the C clips with full circle clips. I found those, but they are for 5-760x, so I don't know if they fit. Then I found those, but I have no clue what they are.

Sure, I could just get a 5-297x (in case my JK doesn't already come with it), but I think the stock u-joints will do the job. I just want the little extra peace of mind that comes with full circle clips.

Well, I think I'm answering my own question... From the pictures that I saw online, a stock u-joint will not take a full circle clip, due to lake of clearance in the yoke ears.
