JK Front Drive Shaft, 1350 Series

Jeep JK front drive shaft noise. . . it is a common problem and is inevitable on nearly all lifted Jeep JK Wranglers. It comes down to the design. The stock drive shafts use Rzeppa CV joints that were designed only to work in stock Jeeps. Two or three inches of lift is enough to cause these CV joints to fail (watch the video below). JK drive shaft rebuild kits just don't cut it. That is why almost all JK drive shaft replacements are upgraded to a double cardan design (a double cardan is also commonly called a cv). The double cardan shaft will handle the angles that your stock drive shaft can not. The double cardan drive shaft is a time tested design that has proven itself in thousands of other Jeeps.

Tom Wood's 1350 series JK front shaft comes with the required output yoke for the transfer case and the bolts directly to the stock pinion flange. If you don't have stock flanges at both the transfer case and axle currently this shaft may not work and you should call us for more information. 

Key product features

  • Double Cardan design. Eliminates problematic CV joints, torn CV boots are a thing of the past. 
  • 2" diameter 0.120" wall USA made DOM tube. 
  • Extra long "X" spline for greater stability and greater range of movement. 
  • Forged slip yoke. 
  • Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or non-greaseable joints.
  • Comes with required transfer case yoke (some "cheaper" shafts don't come with this part which means that you pay more in the long run)
  • Comes with new double cardan bolts with reduced head for ease of installation.
  • 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.

JK front 1350 drive shaft

Ordered and the drveshafts arrived a few days later. I was amazed how fast they can build them to my custom measurements and ship out.
Installation is straight forward if you know how to work on your jeep. The hardest part is getting your stock driveshafts out.
There is no vibration at all. I took my jeep out to Big Bear for a test drive on Gold Mountain and John Bull. The driveshafts had no issues.
I will continue to buy from Tom Woods in the future.

2013 JKU Front Driveshaft replacement

Couldn't ask for an easier transaction...the ordering was simple and straightforward and the new driveshaft arrived as expected without any issue whatsoever. Installation was shockingly simple, especially on a rust-belt Jeep. I was out with the old and in with the new and cleaned up in probably 2 hours or so. No vibration at highway speed and clearly a superior product compared to stock. If you're having any doubts at all, don't...service and quality are top notch.

Second front driveshaft this one for the Jeep

I purchased a front driveshaft for my Ram 3500 6.7 after a failure of the OEM shaft. Have been satisfied with its performance for towing and some off road wheeling including both mud and snow.
When the Jeep JK front driveshaft started failing, without hesitation I ordered from Tom Woods again.
Additionally it was received at my front gate exactly as promised.
I will order a rear driveshaft for the Jeep shortly. It is lifted with 37” tires where I live in Northern Arizona in the high country my vehicles are tested more than just highway conditions. My wife and I need to depend on our equipment functioning.
With many options available, I recommend purchasing from Tom Woods.
