jeep question

ok i know this really has nothing to do with ford or anyting but here it is. my brother came into town and he has a 04 jeep rubicon. and his drive shaft broke. i was wondering if anyone knows if either a regular wrangler or a 05 rubicon drive shaft will work. he also needs a new slip yoke eliminator because one of the 4 bolts that attaches the drive shaft to is has stripped and cracked. dont ask me what the hell he was doing to do all of this ****age cause i dont know and he is a dumb ***. but the bad part about it is i let him take my power stroke home because hes in the navy and he was on a strict time limit so i want this baby fixed and out of here so i can get my truck back.

So. He blew a u-joint out and it took out everything else attached to it? How bad is the crack on the yoke? If it's not too bad, you can drill out the holes a little and replace the straps with some u-bolt type straps. Like this>> With the crack, this is only considered a "band aid" fix. Is it the t-case end or the differential end? The 05 drive shaft should work but, it will HAVE to be from a rubicon since the length of the shafts are different for the other smaller axles on the cheaper Jeeps.

You got any pics of the broken parts? It would help so you don't get pointed in the wrong direction. Also, you might contact a large truck mechanic shop. They can usually build you a replacement driveshaft for fractions of the cost of an OEM part. they can also re-tube shafts as replace just one end if needed and that would be far cheaper than the whole thing.
