Are the outer axle shafts the same length on both driver and passenger side on a Rubi?

YES...outers are the same length. (inner drive side is shorter than pass side on stock axles).

Considering I just replaced the front left axle shaft on my jeep last weekend, I'm not sure where the outer/inner axle shaft is coming from. From my experience, there's the inner shaft and outer housing, with the outer housing being the compete axle.

Does anybody have any drawings or pics to educate the unwashed masses like myself?

Which shaft did you replace the inner or outer? or did you replace both with the u-joint pre-installed?

The outer is outside the u-joint (connects the hub to the U-joint)
The inner is inside the u-joint (connects the u-joint to the differential)
