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, call us. 

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.
  • 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.

Great driveling great price!

These guys make great products and they make them fast! I have ordered three different drivelines all were custom and fit perfect and are better than the originals.

Ok YJ smooth now

Quality drive line. Better than original I believe. Balanced, correct length, quantity U joints. Better price than that big name Jeep parts dealer even with the shipping.

David C
Fantastic product. Lives up to their reputation

I ordered from Canada for the rep and name and quality workmanship (mainly the materials).

And boy oh boy, did they not disappoint. Great outfit, quality product, looks great and VERY strong.

Will be ordering a rear CV shaft soon once my jeep is finished with its current projects.

So far so good

Having had a lot of driveshafts made/modified over the years this one is by far the best quality of all of them. The best part was that it was a lot more affordable than people would assume.
