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 0.120" 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. 

IMPORTANT: If your length, with the slip yoke eliminator installed, is less than 16 1/2" you must select the S Spline option.

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

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.

Great product!

Have a 4" lift on my LJ, and it smothed out the minimal vibes I used to have and made driving the jeep that much more enjoyable.
