Will TJ d30 shafts work in a CJ d30?

I can get a set for free. They have the 297x u-joints. Is it possible to put them in a wide track CJ dana 30. I would be really lucky if they'll just slide in. I think the TJ axle is a little wider than the CJ. Could they be cut and resplined to work. That would still be cheap compared to getting custom shafts with the 297x.

Or will they fit in a YJ d30? They'd make a nice axle out of that little high pinion front. The axle they are coming out of is dead.

Won't work on the CJ, don't think they will on the YJ either.

Nope, as has been stated they will not fit CJ. They may swap into later YJ and Cherokee (xj) axles but then that would be because it is the same axle shaft.

Hey jeepgod, what was I supposed to find on your site? The d44 stuff? I was just looking for a cheap way to strengthen my d30. I'm not sure if I want to put in a d44. Once I'm out of college and the money flows the other direction, it'll be getting a set of 60s. Don't want to swap in a 44 when I know I'll be swapping it out later. Right now I just want to wheel it.
