Hey guys! I just lunched a rear u-joint on my drive shaft. I pulled into a parking lot and dropped the rear drive shaft..... Forward most u-joint in the rear is absolutely TRASHED!!!
My question is how long can I roll on a front wheel drive Wrangler?
I plan on rebuilding the DS this week. Thoughts ???????

You can drive in fwd indefinitely without worry.

Edit....D35, sorry.💩
your first guess was right ;) there is no D35 in the front.
As for wighway speeds there shouldn't be a reason why not, but if you can avoid driving a damaged jeep, it would be better.

I used to work for a guy that had a old Toyota. He ran on front wheel drive for years. I don't work with him anymore but he never fixed it as long as I knew him. Lol

Yep Spicers would be a good choice. Assuming your Jeep is not a Rubicon, Spicer 5-1310x u-joints would be a good choice for your driveshafts.
