YJ Front Drive Shaft, Standard

Front drive shaft for Jeep YJ. For use with most YJs with manually locking hubs or other type of front axle disconnect. If your front axles cannot be disengaged see our double cardan style front shaft. Shaft is not to be used with shackle reversal spring setup. If you have a shackle reversal, look here instead. 

YJ front drive shaft replacement is a good idea for almost any YJ that is still running a stock drive shaft. YJ stock front drive shafts used fairly low grade components. Add a lift, bigger tires, and 25+ years of wear and tear and the result could be badly worn or even worse a broken stock drive shaft. Tom Wood's YJ drive shafts are built using only the highest quality components. 

Key product features 

  • 2" diameter 0.120" wall USA made DOM tube. 
  • 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 YJ 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.

I bought front and rear from Tom woods. I like the way they fit and quality

Jeep Wrangler YJ loves Woods Drive shaft!!

I recently ordered a Tom Wood's standard grease-able front drive shaft for my 1994 Jeep Wrangler YJ. I got it to help with drive line vibrations that limited me to 55 mph or less. The drive shaft arrived earlier than expected, it's a top notch quality product, considerably more "beefy" than the OEM shafts, the extended splines are way longer, the universal joints are much better than parts store versions. All in all I am thrilled with this drive shaft, the vibrations are all but gone!!!! I'll be back to Tom Wood's for a new rear drive shaft!!

Great price and great quality.

Fit perfect and much beefier than the stock shaft. No brainer if you need a replacement.


Bought for my 89 YJ and it was a perfect fit. My previous purchase, not from Tom Woods, did not fit my vehicle correctly. Very happy with this purchase.
