XJ Front Drive Shaft

Due to a national unavailability from both Spicer/Dana and Neapco, the weld yoke required to build this shaft is currently unavailable. Our scheduled monthly orders of these parts has been placed on backorder status. The official answer we are getting on the ETA of these backordered parts is "UNKNOWN". We expect it to be several weeks before they are fully back in stock. Until then, we are unable to build this drive shaft. Keep checking back, we'll update the site as soon as we have more parts! We apologize for the inconvenience. 

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.

Quality built to my specifications. And performs flawlessly. Had been dealing with drive line vibrations for months. Once installed all went away even at 80mph. 2000 xj 4:88 gears on 35s locked front and rear. Cant beat service,speed,price of a TomWoods shaft

Well built

Another Excellent driveshaft from Tom Woods. I've used their shafts in the pasts on other XJs and CJs. Won't order from anyone else anymore, the few times I"ve tried it's never worked out.

American Made Quality

Perfect fit and super beefy front driveshaft for my jeep Comanche. Perfectly balanced, no more vibrations. Super fast shipping, maybe 5 days from the time that I ordered until it was under my jeep. Very satisfied with this product.
