CJ Rear Drive Shaft, Stock Type
CJ rear drive shaft replacement is a good idea for almost any CJ that is still running a stock drive shaft. CJ stock rear 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. Key features listed below.
- 2" diameter 0.120" wall USA made DOM tube.
- Bigger and stronger than stock spline stub.
- Forged slip yoke.
- Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or 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.
Jeep CJ 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.
For lifted vehicles, see our double cardan rear shaft instead.
I was calling all the usual jeep sites. No one could find me a drive shaft for my 79 CJ7. Found Tom's and it was an ease. All the info you need to identify and measure your drive shaft. Installed in minutes. Thank you, Guys!!
1946 Willys CJ2A all stock, rear shaft looks amazing but just barely interfered with the flange that bolts to the parking brake drum. Had to clearance it a small amount.
I ordered a custom length driveshaft for my 1959 cj5 with a sbc&sm465..driveshaft fit perfect and arrived very fast..great service and a great product
Front and rear driveshafts were received within days of placing the order. These are very substantial replacement units for the originals! New shafts were needed due a transmission upgrade. I initially had been concerned about getting proper measurements for overall lengths. After doing research on various sites about how to do it correctly, I was even more concerned. The Tom Woods site offered simple and specific instructions for a CJ. I decided to follow the Tom Woods simple instructions and placed the order. The fit was perfect for my Jeep and I'm very happy with the end results. I would recommend Tom Woods driveshafts to anyone.
Hard to believe in todays world that my custom shaft shipped less than 2 days after I ordered. Beautiful craftsmanship that I look forward to abusing on the trails for years to come. I’ll never go anywhere else for a drive shaft.
