Hi guys,
I did a few searches trying to find what year of Jeep steering shaft will fit, couldn't find a definitive answer.
I understand that there are more than 1 type that can be made to fit, so what year Jeep shaft requires the least amount of hacking to fit?
Thanks

I stopped pulling them, because I had to pull 4 to get a good one. If it clicks when twisted, the U joints are worn out. You can get a new one on Amazon for about $120.

The earlier ones 91-93 are better. You can use 94 and newer ones (of the same design), but they tend to disconnect at the upper universal bushing. You can weld the shaft to the upper joint fork to make them safe.

Have a look at these two links.

Be sure of what you need. Junkyard shafts may also be worn out and may not be correct for your use because they have been changed out for other designs.

Why even bother? Just go borgeson.
Have you priced Borgeson? A new Jeep shaft is about the price of ONE universal joint from Borgeson. It will also work just as well as the Borgeson setup.

Yes I have.

I value my life a lot more than a few hundred bucks.

There is no danger in using the Jeep shaft, as long as you know the weak points, and fix them. A couple of hundred dollars frivolously spent is still a couple of hundred dollars you no longer have. If you want to spend a couple of hundred dollars more for the same results, that is up to you, but safety is not an issue with the Jeep shaft, especially if you buy a new one.
