Default Somebody School Me On U-Joints

Going to replace all of my U-joints for this season - they're 10 years old and I want to replace them with newer, fresher stock (and make sure I can do it on the trail if necessary).

I have a 98 TJ with a D30 front and "Super" D35 rear (until I finish and install my D44). Stock shafts, no SYE.

What Spicer joints should I use? I'd like to upgrade if possible (my spare D30 shafts have new 760 U-joints on them)?

What U-joints can, should, or shouldn't I use? This may be intuitive so some, but not me....

Just swap in the spares with the 760's. And then replace the driveline joints with Spicers (I think they're 1530's). Without spending a ton of $$, that is your best bet. The Superior u joints are only like $50, so that might be a good upgrade if you can spend a little more.
