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. Shaft will require a CV compatible yoke for transfer case and may require axle shims. 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.

Jeep CJ lengths drive shaft lengths vary a bit and we want to make sure you get the right thing. That is why require a length measurement before building your shaft. Measuring is simple and easy. You can read more about how to measure in the link below.

Bought a new front and rear drive shaft for my Jeep cj7; had to measure for new ones due to engine and transmission swap. I can not say enough praise and amazing things about Tom Woods and their amazing driveshafts! Any questions I had were answered promptly and very professionally. I will never shop elsewhere for quality driveshafts, Tom Woods is the way to go! Extremely happy with my purchase.
Installed on 80cj 7. with 4 inch lift. Installed spring wedges and then driveshaft. Easy install and vibrations are gone. Now I need to get one for the front.
Measured, ordered, installed!!!
Five days, start to finish!
Form, fit & function as advertised….
Ordered double cardan style for CJ with measurement from original, arrived within 1 week international to AUS, awesome service. Shaft size fit perfect, I hadn’t ordered the cv style yoke as I thought the original would fit however no, the bolt pattern on original is different spacing to the Tom Woods bolt pattern, a little disappointed but I didn’t find this information clear in the product descriptions, the way I read it was as long as I have a cv compatible yoke I wouldn’t need to replace. Ordered a new Tom Woods yoke and should all be good.
This is my second Tom Woods drive shaft, I fitted a new shaft to my JKU and vibration issue fixed.
Great quality product highly recommend
I replaced both the front and rear drive shafts with XB yoke versions on my 1976 CJ5. Both are extremely well made and the double cardan rear drive shaft eliminated the vibration caused from my 4" lift. I ordered online and followed up with a phone call to confirm my measurements. The staff was extremely helpful. I am very pleased with my purchase and highly recommend!!
