Default What xj front axle's fit YJ, no disco?

Anyone know what years XJ front axle shafts will fit in a 93 YJ to get rid of the disconnect. Having a heck of a time finding TJ shafts anywhere close to me and with the xj's some have disconnects, some have CV joints instead of Ujoints, any help would be great, thanks.

'94 and up will give you the big u-joint and the one piece long side shaft. You can also get them from any ZJ that doesn't have the full time t-case.

What's the pro's and con's of using an xj instead of a tj shaft, I read somewhere about the factory seals in them being different?

Same setup, just have to make sure they are out of a 242 or 231 t-cased rig. They will have tone rings on them for ABS, but that won't matter. Either knock the rings off, or just use the shafts as is. Doesn't make a difference. I've swapped several sets of ZJ shafts into TJs and YJs. The XJ shaft is the same, as well. The only difference is that the ealry one piece XJ shafts run the smaller u-joint. Stay with the later XJ or TJ or ZJ shafts, and you'll be fine.

You will need a new seal for the passenger side of the axle housing. Pretty sure CC and others listed the part number in here somewhere, but you will need to search, as I am about to pass out.
