I have swapped 8.8's into a both AX15 and NV3550 equipped XJ's.

Without an SYE I was able to continue using the stock shaft with a slip yoke.

With an SYE I was not able to find a front shaft that would work and just went with a Tom Woods. The XJ AW4 front shaft is too short. There are some ZJ front shafts that looked like they may work, but finding one was a bigger issue.
