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, look here instead.

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. 
  • 1310 series joints.
  • 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 on 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 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.

Another Great Driveshaft!

I already installed a Tom Wood's rear driveshaft on my Scrambler, so when it was time to replace my front, I knew where to get it! I placed an order for the front driveshaft, and received it in less than a week! It looks and works great! Thank you!

Outstanding Quality, Fast Shipping

This was a front driveshaft for my '82 Jeep CJ5. Outstanding quality as expected. I've been running a Woody double cardan rear shaft for a few years. Couldn't be more pleased.

Quality build fast shipping

Got our front driveshaft for our 77 CJ5 after the stock one finally died last year. The quality of the build is evident and measuring to make sure it fit was a breeze. Installed in 20 min amd hit the trails. Nice to have the ujoints installed because thats always a pain. No vibration or clunking like old shaft. Should have ordered it years ago. Reasonably priced compared to other sites (Morris 4x4)
