Go to the bone yard and look for any XJ and pull the shafts out..

There are 2 different size joints for the 30 so if there are more than one XJ compare the shafts.. If there is only one XJ in the yard its a moot point.. Mr. Green


The shafts simply slide in place of the CVs.. But you wont have ABS anymore..

If you want U jointed shafts with the abs tone ring you will have to order them.. Or get very lucky...

If you dont know how to remove the CVs post up and I will guide you thru it..

Thank you swampy,
I appreciate your advise. Thanks for you help on your other post on Transwaps, took your advise on the command screen for lack of better word.. Switched the two wires on the command screen and now it reads my transfer case in the right mode.
Thanks again.. I know somewhere you had on a post about putting up a picture with your name. I was wondering if you can tell me where to find it or how to do it? I would like to put a picture of my jeep with me on my name.

Click the profile button scroll down to where it says Signature...

Type in whatever you want and then add a picture with image tags.. (make sure its not a huge picture .. If you need it resized just email it to me..

image tags are [ img]insert address here....[/img ]

I added spaces into the brackets so that it would stay visible...

Let me know if you need more help..

Carl
