CJ Rear Drive Shaft, Double Cardan

1310 series rear drive shaft for Jeep CJ. 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. Unless it has already been upgraded, you will need a new double cardan compatible yoke for the transfer case and may require axle shims. Dana 18 transfer cases require a 10 spline yoke. Dana 300 transfer cases require a 26 spline yoke. Dana 20 transfer cases could be either, if you have a Dana 20 transfer case you will need to count the number of splines on the output shaft or old yoke. Select which yoke you need in the dropdown menu on this page and it will be included with your order.  This shaft is built using 1310 series joints which is the standard size for a CJ, if you have a non-stock transfer case, axle, or something else that may affect yoke/joint size it is a good idea to double check the size of your joints. A 1310 series joint is approximately 3 1/4 wide from end of cap to end of cap.

Cj5 rear driveshaft

Fast shipping, built well. Put a 4inch lift on and had vibrations. This driveshaft fixed that issue. Thank you.


Perfect fit! I could not be more impressed or pleased with the quality, fit and function. Delivery time was unbelievably quick.
I am building this with my daughter as her first project (she just turned 12). With her limited experience, having parts that do more than "just work" is a huge deal. Her being able to see the combination of proper planning, high quality materials and correct implementation equaling success means everything. Tom Wood's Driveshafts made that an easy lesson to teach.

Cj7 rear drive shaft

This is the second cj7 that I have put a 4 inch lift kit on and put a Chevy 350 engine and automatic transmission in. Tom wood’s Driveshaft are the best. No vibrations and had shaft built and shipped in 4 days. Easy to follow on how to measure for the exact fit.
