TJ Rear Drive Shaft, Double Cardan

Rear drive shaft for Jeep TJ or LJ. Does not fit Rubicon model. Double cardan type, also known as a CV. This is what you need if your Jeep is lifted and you are experiencing vibrations or other problems due to increased angles. Shaft will require a slip yoke eliminator. May also require adjustable control arms to run smoothly.

  • 2" diameter .120" wall USA made DOM tube. 
  • 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.
  • Comes with new CV bolts with reduced head for ease of installation.
  • 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 TJ rear 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. Shafts shorter than 16" need to be ordered with the S spline.

We recommend a new set of straps and bolts to securely attach your new drive shaft.

Exactly what I needed

The driveshaft came exactly as ordered, very well packaged, and way faster than I expected! There was a useful 1-sheeter of directions in the box and the tag saying who built and balanced the ds was a nice touch. It’s installed now and working great with my new AA SYE kit (also purchased from Tom Wood’s).

Jeep TJ rear DC DS

Ordered this driveshaft a couple months back. I swapped a Dana 44 into my TJ so I called and spoke to Shawn. He helped me figure out what rear joint I would need since it wasn't a standard size for my make/model. I followed his suggestion for taking measurements and provided hem with those. New driveshaft showed up within a week, and it bolted right up, no problem. I'm running 4 inches of lift and a SS SYE, and I've had zero vibes since install. And there was no upcharge for the problem solving with Shawn or the custom rear U-Joint.

Solid company, and I'll be a customer for life.
