Default D30 Shafts - TJ / XJ

Will XJ D30 High Pinion shafts work in a TJ with a low pinion D30?

I was looking at picking up a pair of spares from an XJ but want to be sure they'd fit first.

yes.

and by the way. low pinion D30 TJ shafts will also work in a XJ high pinion D30


PS: just don't grab the XJ vacuum disconnect passenger axle shaft. that won't work. but all XJ driver, and the XJ non-disconnect passenger shafts will work. if that sounds confusing, don't worry about it. once you have the shafts in your hand, you'll understand without anybody explaining it.

Make sure you get the late model ones with the 297x u-joints. There are early, non disconnect versions with smaller 260 joints in them.


Also, non-cv style ZJ shafts will work as well, and they all have the bugger u-joints.

oh yeah minor detail. thanks for covering that.


and personally i would stay away from ZJ shafts with "bugger" u-joints (they tend to be a little runny and get stuck under chairs. LOL). but i've heard that the ZJ shafts with the bigger u-joints will work too.

Umm, Yeah.

You're welcome, oh great tech mod of GL4x4. I'm pretty sure buying early D30 shafts with the 260 u-joints wouldn't be considered a "minor detail" for anyone running 33s or larger.

These have brand new 760 u-joints in them.

I'm running 33s, and considering moving to 35s. Deal breaker?

760s are the good u-joints, run 'em.
