Front stock DS works in some instances but not others, depends on transmission, t case and axle variants. I donít know the details - so I went the easy route and paid to let someone else figure it out!

I have an AW4 (auto) and a C8.25. After I did my Hack n Tap SYE, I installed the front drive shaft from the same configuration. The auto trans is longer and makes the front shaft longer. I don't think one from a manual will be long enough. I ran this for a couple years. Then I got a good deal on an Adams driveshaft and have been running that since.
Tom Woods is another very good brand. They have several different options for drive shafts and slip yokes. check out their website for the proper way to measure your drive shaft length.

I was trying to use a front drive shaft from an AW4 for the rear of my ax15

I was thinking some one used one from a grand Cherokee

I keep an extra front shaft around because it does work for both the front and back with an SYE.
I got the new rear shaft made at Adam's DriveShaft in Henderson Las Vegas

I am hoping that once I get the right yoke in the mail, then hopefully the shaft from my 99 will fit.
I also found the correct translation bracket which lowered my transmission some
So maybe it will all fit together
