U-joint yoke & driveshaft question
I have the possibility looming before me of the necessity to switch out transmissions and transfer cases if my stock transmission has internal problems.

My rig is a 82 Cherokee with 258 six cylinder engine, T5 manual 5 speed, NP208 transfer case.

If my transmission is bad, & I'm pulling it tomorrow and will then know, I may opt to install the NP435 & NP205 I have. My question is about the yokes & u-joints from the transfer case to the axles, as the yoke on the NP205 appears to be a good bit beefier than the stock yokes on the Jeep axles.

I am under the impression that the Jeep yokes/u-joints are known as 1310, and those on the NP205 may be 1350. So please chime in if you know what these are.

Not sure what they might be without measuring them.
About 2/3 of the way down the page are the dimensions of the more common joints.

Lots of options out there and there are conversion joints that allow you to run say a 1310 on one side and a 1350 on the other.
I was able to get the 1410 yoke from a Dodge 205 to work on my Dodge 208 simply by finding the proper seal.

U joints
There should be no need to change out the yoke assembly in the transfer case housing.

The U-joints, however, can be adapted. The SJ Jeeps have a 1310; the u-joint on the NP435/205 combo I have, allegedly from an 80s era Bronco, is more substantial. Perhaps it's a 1350.
