Question U joint confusion

I'm looking to replace the axle u joint on my 2010 JKU Sahara and I am finding conflicting information on which to order. The Spicer 5-760X appears to be the one I would need, but the parts suppliers websites list that as only being used up the TJ. I also found a thread stating that the axle was upgraded at some point on the JK's and that dealer won't replace u joints, they will make you upgrade the axles. A $20 u joint vs a $275 axle shaft? I'll take the u joint please... I just need to know the correct one.

I have 2012 and when I replaced mine I bought one to small even though it was for a 2012 as jeep upgraded shafts.
What I found out thereís a number on the axle part where the ujoint goes, this number I took to the dealer and they got me the correct size ujoint.
