97 XJ needing driveshaft specs

Hey my fam, I need to know if anyone knows the factory front DS length for a 4.0 AW4 with NP242 T case. Amazon says 30.5 inches collapsed so I ordered one and its like inch and a half too long collapsed to fit. I bent mine worse than a banana on a log that I couldn't see on a trail and couldn't get an accurate measurement on it. Any help would be appreciated

Re: 97 XJ needing driveshaft specs

Just wanted to add I have measured the distance from yoke to yoke and it's just under 30 inches @ 29 3/4 with weight on the wheels. The XJ is at 4 inches of lift sitting on 31X10.50
General Grabber x3 mud grips. Also have a 1 1/2 t-case drop.

Glad you figured it out.
No idea how long mine are and I made them. I can only imagine the internet will really screw up a good thing and give you the wrong numbers as you found.
