TJ Rear Drive Shaft, Double Cardan

Rear drive shaft for Jeep TJ or LJ. Does not fit Rubicon model. Double cardan type, also known as a CV. This is what you need if your Jeep is lifted and you are experiencing vibrations or other problems due to increased angles. Shaft will require a slip yoke eliminator. May also require adjustable control arms to run smoothly.

  • 2" diameter .120" wall USA made DOM tube. 
  • Bigger and stronger than stock spline stub. 
  • Forged slip yoke. 
  • Greaseable CV center ball.
  • Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or Spicer non-greaseable joints.
  • Comes with new CV bolts with reduced head for ease of installation.
  • Best of all every shaft is custom built to whatever length you need. So you can be sure that you will get the right thing the first time around.

Jeep TJ rear drive shaft lengths vary a bit and we want to make sure you get the right thing. That is why we require a length measurement before building the shaft. Measuring is simple and easy. You can read more about how to measure in the link below.

We recommend a new set of straps and bolts to securely attach your new drive shaft.

Rear shaft for TJ and my thoughts on the process

I ordered a new front and rear shaft for my Jeep TJ at the same time. Both shafts were sent separately and I received the rear shaft one week later than the front as UPS gave my package to someone else. UPS's customer service is terrible in my country. Anyway, my rear shaft was/is overall fine now that I've fitted it. It arrived with a small nick on the CV joint end which I had to file away as it was raised when trying to mount to the yoke. Otherwise the length is perfect and everything seems great. Also a word of advice for anyone with a SYE with a smaller yoke; the included bolts that TW provides did not fit initially for me as the heads are longer than usual, so I had to make them smaller in order to fit into the small space behind my yoke.

I decided to put a rock-trac nv241or in my yj. Tom woods hooked me up with front and rear cv yokes and a 17.5 inch rear double cardan driveline. Everything is perfect. At any speed zero vibrations. Smoother than stock! They included all necessary hardware, immediate shipping, and flawless craftsmanship. They really made me feel like a sponsored member of their team.

LJ drive shaft

2006 Jeep LJ with SYE. Rear drive dbl Carson. Great quality, but need to apply better paint or not paint at all. When package arrived it was pretty beat up and the paint was already missing in several spots. It would be really cool to have it just be the metal color with a clear rust coating . But all in all it works great! Another satisfied customer

Great service and fast shipping

Overall pretty happy with my Tom woods rear driveshaft for my SYE Jeep TJ. My only complaints are that one of the plastic covers for my zerk fittings arrived damaged, and fell off on the first drive. Additionally, the grease fitting on the CV ball joint itself is a nightmare to grease with the plastic "service tool" TW provides. I still expect the driveshaft to survive many years of abuse.
