XJ Front Drive Shaft
XJ front drive shaft replacement is a good idea for almost any XJ that is still running a stock drive shaft. XJ stock front drive shafts used fairly low grade components. Add a lift, bigger tires, and 19+ years of wear and tear and the result could be badly worn or even worse a broken stock drive shaft. Tom Wood's XJ 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.
- Greaseable CV center ball.
- Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or Spicer non-greaseable joints.
- Comes with new CV bolts with reduced head for ease of installation.
- 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 XJ front 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.
We recommend a new set of straps and bolts to securely attach your new drive shaft.
31-1/2" for my 1993 cherokee XJ with a high pinion Dana 60 front end. And about 4"-6" of lift. Super fast turn around, from ordering, starting the next business day, to when the driveline shipped was 48 business hours. Very impressed with the attention to detail as well, I messed up on one option about the slip. Emailed and had a response first thing the next morning from Shawn that my order would be updated accordingly. Quality is top notch, installed the day it arrived. Took it out the weekend after and super smooth. No vibrations whatsoever. I probably could have measured slightly better and went maybe a inch longer, but plenty of spline engagement and slip travel both in and out. Can't thank Shawn enough for his customer service, really appreciate your help. I've reccomended you guys to a bunch of buddies. So much better than dealing with the local shops that want a arm, a leg, and your first born child, then take 2+ weeks to complete.
27" length works for replacing front shaft on a stock Jeep Wagoneer (FSJ). Initially shaked a bit more compared to the original shaft but seems to have smoothed out after driving 50 miles. Construction is good quality and sturdy.
I’m impressed. I use this XJ like a tractor. The lift exceeded the reach of the OEM. You all customized a shaft that will let me do whatever I want with this Jeep! Hats off to Joel and others involved in building this perfect drive shaft. I changed it out last Saturday without a lift in less than two hours.
Great company, product and people. Easy order and fast turn around ordered front and rear for my 96XJ have them the measurement they asked for and two perfect fits!
5 stars. Turn around was on point and both shafts fit without worries. I do need to obtain new straps and bolts at the pinion end. Other than that no more clunky clunk.
