Mario...You need axle shafts that are the correct length and spline count at each side.  If you're thinking of an original equipment shaft like the XJ Cherokee uses, you need to compare the lengths and splines.  I've never tried this conversion.  You need to search further.

You can search on the internet for aftermarket upgrade axle shafts that fit your Grand Cherokee and have cross-joints.  I've used Superior Axle (no longer in business), there are others.  It would actually be cheaper to get exchange CV-axle axle shafts to replace your OE shafts.  Cardone and others market rebuilt CV-type axle shafts for less than $50 each, here's an example:  http://www.partsgeek.com/6x3m9tv-jeep-grand-cherokee-axle-assembly.html?utm_source=shopzilla&utm_medium=pf&utm_content=dcs&utm_campaign=PartsGeek+ShopZilla&fp=pp&utm_term=Jeep+Axle+Assembly.

Do any other members have experience with the ZJ Grand Cherokee axle shafts and converting to cross joints?  Please advise Mario.
