TJ Rubicon CV Rear Drive Shaft

Rear drive shaft for Jeep TJ or LJ. Only fits Rubicon model.

TJ Rubicon rear drive shaft vibrations are virtually guaranteed on any TJ Rubicon with 2" of lift or more. Because these shafts are so short, every 1" of lift adds nearly 4° of angle to the drive shaft! All that added angle will cause Rubicon stock rear drive shafts to shudder and vibrate. The solution is to run a double cardan (also know as a CV) drive shaft. This will smooth out the power flow by splitting the angle between multiple joints. In order for this type of shaft to work correctly however, you may need to adjust the angle of your rear pinion using adjustable control arms. Click the link below for more details about proper pinion angle.

Great Product

High quality drive shaft that is made in the USA! Glad to see quality products and service still exists in the USA. It shipped out the very next day after I ordered it! I took measurements as requested and it fit like a glove on my 2004 Wrangler Rubicon. Great product, service and support. I highly recommend.

Fast shipping and perfect rear shaft for the Rock Link Pro Long Arm lift. Smooth and should last a long time with the greaseable joints.
