JK Front Drive Shaft, 1310 Series

Jeep JK front drive shaft noise. . . it is a common problem and is inevitable on nearly all lifted Jeep JK Wranglers. It comes down to the design. The stock drive shafts use Rzeppa type CV joints that were designed only to work in stock Jeeps. Two or three inches of lift is enough to cause these CV joints to fail (watch the video below). JK drive shaft rebuild kits just don't cut it. That is why almost all JK drive shaft replacements are upgraded to a double cardan design (a double cardan is also commonly referred to as a cv). The double cardan shaft will handle the angles that your stock drive shaft can not. The double cardan drive shaft is a time tested design that has proven itself in thousands of other Jeeps.

Tom Wood's 1310 series JK front shaft comes with the required output yoke for the transfer case and will bolt directly to your stock pinion flange. If you don't have stock flanges at both the transfer case and axle currently this shaft may not work and you should call us for more information. 

Key product features

  • Double Cardan drive shaft design. Eliminates problematic CV joints, torn CV boots are a thing of the past. 
  • 2" diameter 0.120" wall USA made DOM tube. 
  • Extra long "X" spline for greater stability and greater range of movement. 
  • Forged slip yoke. 
  • Greaseable double cardan center ball.
  • Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or non-greaseable joints.
  • Comes with required transfer case yoke. (some "cheaper" shafts don't come with this yoke which means that you pay more in the long run)
  • Comes with new bolts for the double cardan with reduced heads for ease of installation.
  • Best of all every shaft can be custom built to whatever length you need. So you can be sure that you will get the right thing the first time around.

Great Company and Products

Replaced stock front drive shaft on my 2012 JKU. Easy to follow measuring instructions. Ordered on Sunday had it delivered by Thursday. Great customer service with quick response to questions. Will definitely be purchasing a rear drive shaft from Tom Woods.

Front driveshaft for my Jku Rubicon

I found the communication with the shop and the delivery top notch. My only issue was that the packaging needs to be improved a little. Mine arrived with one of the u-joint grease zirks sticking out of the box. There was no permanent damage other that the plastic red cover was torn up. The install was pretty straight forward. Now ordered a 1350 for the rear.

Really Happy with the shafts!

You could see the difference between the original and the one Tom’s Wood shaft. I purchased 2 front shafts for my wife’s and my Jeep JK and it fit so perfectly. The installation was real easy. The written instructions that they came with were spot on.
