Dana30 CV axle shafts?

I bought a D30 axle that came with these cv shafts. They don't look like anything I've seen on a TJ before or seen referenced on this forum. Has anybody here seen shafts like these? Not sure if I want to try them or swap over my stock shafts to the new axle. Thanks for your help.

They're probably out of a WJ.

ZJ V8 if 5x4.5. They're weaker than stock TJ u-joint shafts, that's why the ZJ crowd swaps to TJ u-joint shafts.

Decent shafts for mild trails (creek banks, small (knee high) rocks, dirt roads, shallow mud)?

I wouldn't run them or swap them in for the OE TJ Dana 30 shafts.

not at all. the boots rip, lube leaks out and the fail.

they are decent shafts for a street vehicle with ABS, and that's about it.
