1350 CV Driveshaft
This is for those of you who have something more custom and need a 1350 double cardan shaft. For this to work you will have to have one of the options listed in each of the dropdown boxes below. Measure your flanges or yokes and the length as shown in the video embedded at the bottom of the page. Length measurements should be taken at ride height. Then just select the attachment type at each end, select the tube size, and select greaseable or non-greaseable joints. If you need an attachment type that isn't listed or have concerns about angles, having adequate compression/extension, or anything else please call us to order or for more info. 801-737-0757
If you have a 1350 series yoke at the transfer case make sure it is a CV compatible yoke. The bolt spacing in the wide direction should be 2.75" center of hole to center of hole. If it is wider or if you have threaded holes you will need a different yoke.
If you have a flange, specify whether your t-case or pinion flange has threaded or smooth-bore drilled holes. We will build drive shaft to have the opposite so that the bolts will pass through one thing and thread into the other.
Select the tube diameter based primarily on length. 2" diameter tube is what we normally use for front shafts due to clearance being a common issue in the front. 3" and 3.5" is what we use for rear shafts. The longer the rear shaft , the larger the tube diameter. Select the .083" wall tube for vehicles that are primarily driven on the road and the .120" wall option for off road vehicles that are likely to have rocks bang against the tube from time to time.
This is by no means a complete list of all the options so if don't see what you need or if you have questions please call us! 801-737-0757
The pictures generally represent the shaft you select but depending on options the actual appearance of the shaft may vary.
First time ever bought a driveshaft, but Man did Tom Woods and their staff make it so easy. It went in and bolted together with no problems. If I have to buy another driveshaft I’m definitely going through them.
Ordered a custom length rear shaft for a 1988 V30 (K30) original cab and chassis length truck that has now been shortened down to Squarebody short bed length with long travel rear leaf springs and 6 inches of lift. Tech at Tom Wood's helped me get the correct rear output flange for a NP205 transfer case and verified how I measured for the new shaft length. Ordered on a Thursday and had the part in my hand the following Tuesday. The UPS crews must have known what was in the box and wanted a closer look or they had been playing baseball with the shaft because the CV end was sticking completely out of the box when they left it at my deliveries box and ran. Now if I can get Off Road Design to respond with the corrected replacement front long travel leafs, I will order a new front driveshaft from Tom Wood's.... waiting, waiting,... anyone home at Off Road Design???? Hello, hello???? Off Road Design could take a bunch of clues from the outstanding customer service at Tom Wood's, especially since you can actually talk to a live person at Tom Wood's.
Needed a driveshaft for my 1977 Wagoneer project and wanted something that could take the power of the Hemi I swapped in (and then some). This custom driveshaft is exactly what I needed. Beefy and beautiful. Plus the turnaround time from ordering till arrival is likity-split! So impressed with the driveshaft I went ahead and ordered a custom 1350 for my front as well!
Been wanting one of these guys driveshafts for a while, ended up really needing one after putting the stock GM on through my oil pan...Placed the order with Karry yesterday 1/23/23, received shipping notice today 1/24/23 and tracking shows it to be delivered on the 26th! I could have had one a little sooner from my local shop at a price tag of ~$700, but I have to work the next 4 nights anyways so there's not much I can do to the rig until my next set of days off. Hats off to these guys for great customer service and what I know will be a top notch driveshaft with all the positive reviews from the 4x4 community!
