Jeep Cherokee Multiple Double Cardan Front Drive Shaft 

For Jeep Cherokee, XJ. The multiple double cardan shaft is a shaft with a double cardan (aka CV) on each end of the shaft. This is used when proper geometry for a conventional double cardan cannot be achieved due to lift height or other reasons. This is usually the case on vehicles with more than 4 inches of lift. The multiple double cardan is only recommended if you have a big lift, bad angles, and the drive shaft is spinning all the time. It is also only applicable to front drive shafts. For a better understanding of all this you can watch the video embedded at the bottom of this page. 

 Key features listed below. 

  • Includes required double cardan compatible yoke for front axle. 
  • 2" diameter 0.120" wall USA made DOM tube. 
  • 1310 series joints.
  • Bigger and stronger than stock spline stub. 
  • Forged slip yoke. 
  • Greaseable CV center ball. 
  • Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or non-greaseable joints
  • Best of all every shaft can be custom built to whatever length you need. So you can be sure that you will get the right thing the first time around.

Why do I need to measure?

When considering why measurement is essential for selecting the right drive shaft, the variability introduced by vehicle modifications becomes paramount. For example, even with standardized lift sizes like 3 inches for a Jeep Wrangler JK, the specific type of lift kit and accompanying components such as control arms can vary significantly. Control arms, whether adjustable or fixed, alter the axle's position, directly impacting the required length of the drive shaft. This variability means that assumptions based on lift size alone can lead to incorrect fittings and potential operational issues. At our company, we prioritize accuracy and customer satisfaction by requesting measurements. This ensures that the drive shaft we provide fits precisely and functions reliably within your vehicle's specific setup. By taking a quick measurement from your transfer case yoke to your axle yoke, you can guarantee a custom-fit solution without additional cost or delay, optimizing both performance and safety.

What are the different spline options?
  • S Spline (Short): Conventional spline stub with a safe and effective 3" stroke.
  • X Spline (Extended): Longer than the S spline, cut for the full length of the spline stub, yielding more than twice the contact area and a 4.5" stroke for extended life.
  • XB (Boot): Heavy rubber boot with stainless steel banding for wet and dirty conditions.
  • XC (Cap/Dust Cap): Drilled and tapped slip yoke with grease fitting and dust cap for rocks and extreme wheeling.
  • The X spline with XC yoke is considered the best all-around option. Different yoke-seal options are only available with the X spline. The S spline always comes with a dust cap. X spline may not be an option depending or total length of drive shaft. 
Are greaseable or non-greaseable joints better?

Non-greaseable joints are slightly stronger, but the difference is not significant compared to regularly maintained greaseable joints. The key factor is maintenance:

  • Greaseable joints: Outlast non-greaseable joints if greased regularly, but require consistent upkeep.
  • Non-greaseable joints: Maintenance-free but cannot be re-greased when they dry out, eventually needing replacement.

Choose greaseable joints if you are committed to regular maintenance. If you prefer a maintenance-free option, non-greaseable joints are suitable, but remember that other drive shaft components may still need greasing. The best choice ultimately depends on your individual needs and preferences.
