This is the OEM axle shaft out of a 95 or newer XJ. Directly bolts in to any XJ, ZJ, TJ front end without Central Axle Disconnect. This axle shaft is equipped with the much larger (Dana 44 size) Spicer 297X u-joint (94 and older XJ's use the small 260X u-joint). This is a genuine Dana brand inner and outer axle shaft assembly complete with Spicer 297X u-joint installed. This is a must have upgrade for any 94 or older XJ running 32" or larger tires, especially with a front locker. Also a good upgrade for old, fatigued and rusty axle shafts. For 33-35" tires (up to 13.5" wide) with a front locker, we recommend the complete set with the stronger Spicer 760X u-joint and our Almost Alloy kit installed and ready to bolt in.
ZJ Owners: This is an EXCELLENT upgrade for ZJ's to convert their CV axles to heavier duty U-joint axles.
Note: The passenger side axle shaft is not compatible with the Central Axle Disconnect system found on some vehicles. The Central Axle Disconncect system can be eliminated and replaced with this one piece axle shaft for a great strength upgrade. This requires a new axle seal. Our optional Central Axle Disconnect block-off plate allows you to remove the disconnect module and cover the opening for a clean appearance. The disconnect module could also be left in place, or removed and the opening could be left open.
Axle Seals $9.99
Central Axle Disconnect block-off plate $19.99
