New front drive shaft?

What's a scrambler?

I am trying to replace my front drive shaft with a new (used) one since my old one is completely shot.

Does any one know what size 12 sided socket I should get in order to remove the old one?

And when the 12 points strip off, I cut the strap in half, then weld the bolt heads to the straps, and grab the strap peices with vice grips and unscrew. Then get the right ubolts, drill out the treads, and put it together right.

I was thinking mine are 1/4 because I keep a 12 pnt wrench in my tool bag just for them.

One more vote for 1/4" 12 pt. The dealership replacement (I used to work in a Mopar parts dept, so I got them cheap) is a 5/16" 6 pt bolt. I liked those much better - more beef there.

Glad I've gone to u-bolts instead - I've seen too many CJs spit those bolts out and lose the driveshaft.

Locktite the heck outta those bolts.
