CJ Front Drive Shaft, Manual Transmission

Front drive shaft for Jeep CJ with manual transmission. Shaft is built using 2" diameter DOM tube for maximum strength. The 2" tube is much stronger than the light duty 1.25" diameter tubing that the stock shafts used. Unless you have some sort of clearance issue, there is no reason not to upgrade to a stronger 2" tube.

Shaft is not to be used with shackle reversal spring setups. If you have a shackle reversal, call us.

CJ front drive shaft replacement is a good idea for almost any CJ that is still running a stock drive shaft. CJ stock front drive shafts used fairly low grade components. Add a lift, bigger tires, and decades of wear and tear and the result could be a badly worn or even worse a broken stock drive shaft. Tom Wood's CJ 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. 
  • Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or Spicer 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 CJ 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.

CJ front driveshaft

Very fast service, ordered and delivered in less than a week. I ordered custom length driveshafts for my slightly modified 76 CJ5. Tom Wood's informative website gave me confidence in my abilities to measure drive shaft length and angles correctly.

CJ8 Front Driveshaft

I am building a CJ8 with 4" lift springs and extended shackels. It has a 401/TH400/Dana 20. I ordered the "manual trans" driveshaft that has the 2" OD tube. The tube clears the transmission pan. I have street driven it, but not bounced around off-road yet. I do not expect any problems. The shaft appears to be great quality, was shipped fast and fit perfectly.
