TJ Driveshaft specs

Well now that I've finished my SOA on my YJ, I need to find or have built a front CV driveshaft with a running length of 40.5".

Do TJ's use the 1310 U-joints? and does anyone have a link to TJ ds lengths by engine/tranny combinations?

BTW, my output from my 231 is for a CV.

Thanks

TJ's use 1310's.
TJ front driveshafts suck..the tubes are really really thin, and the the tube is large diameter.

Then replace the tube with a thicker large diameter tube. The 70's CJs and FSJs with the quadratrac came with a CV shaft too but it is only 1-1/4" diameter thickwall. I have twisted 2 of those.
