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.
- 1310 series joints.
- 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.
- Your choice of spline and slip yoke options, more about that here.
- 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.
Incredibly fast turn around on my order, shipped quickly and was packed well. Installed easily and was the exact length for what I ordered. Weighs more and appears thicker and more durable than the original for my CJ.
This is the second shaft I have purchased from here. Both have wirked out perfectly. Follow instructikns closely on measuring and options and rest assured you will be fine. I have never had any issues. Looks good, runs great, and tough as they come.
Just installed a stock front and rear Tom Woods drive shaft in my 1981 CJ 7. Like the song says “if I’d know then what I know now” it would have been put in a long time ago. Best upgrade I’ve done to my Jeep.
I am very satisfied with my purchase. My drive shaft came earlier than expected and fit perfectly!!! Thanks
Installed 350 Chevrolet engine in 79 cj5 and had to change engine angle so existing drive line was to short. New one fits and works fine, thanks
