CJ Front Drive Shaft, Automatic Transmission
Upgraded Jeep CJ front drive shaft for Jeeps with automatic transmission or other clearance issues.
Shaft is not to be used with shackle reversal spring setups. If you have a shackle reversal, call us.
CJ front drive shaft replacement is a good idea for almost any CJ that is still running a stock drive shaft. CJ stock front drive shafts used fairly low grade components. Add a lift, bigger tires, and decades of wear and tear and the result could be a badly worn or even worse a broken stock drive shaft. Tom Wood's CJ drive shafts are built using only the highest quality components. Shaft is built using narrow 1.25" diameter tube to enable clearance around transmission pan. Don't be fooled, this narrow tube is nothing like the narrow tube on your stock drive shaft. To add strength to this skinny tube, we use an extra heavy wall 0.188" thick DOM tubing. Key features listed below.
- 1.25" diameter 0.188" wall USA made DOM tube.
- Bigger, stronger, and longer than stock spline stub.
- Forged slip yoke.
- Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or Spicer non-greaseable joints.
- 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.
- Custom made drive shafts are shipped one business day after the order is received. How is that possible you ask? Magic. Magic and hard work.
Jeep CJ front 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.
Running a Th400/Dana300 combo in my 69 IH scout with a 5.3...fit perfectly and cleared the trans pan just fine! The crews turn around from order to delivery was under a week!
The fit and quality of the driveline I received from Tom Wood's was excellent. It's nice to deal with a service oriented organization that delivers a quality product. I be back soon to purchase my rear driveline. Keep up the great work.
Best driveshaft my jeep has ever had. Was still running the stock shaft with Over 300k miles, and it was worn out! This bolted right in and works great. Went with the the smaller diameter automatic shaft because I had a skid plate clearance issue. Worked out perfectly!
Great fit and quality product. I couldn’t be happier with the service and info. I ordered front and rear new drive shafts and had them in a week! Thanks Woods for checking all the boxes!!!!
Very simple ordering process for a custom length shaft. Shipping was faster than my local drive line shop could get a new shaft built. Fitment was perfect and the drive shaft definitely seems more durable than the previous one. I will be ordering from tom woods for my rear drive shaft soon.
