XJ Front Drive Shaft

XJ front drive shaft replacement is a good idea for almost any XJ that is still running a stock drive shaft. XJ stock front drive shafts used fairly low grade components. Add a lift, bigger tires, and 19+ years of wear and tear and the result could be badly worn or even worse a broken stock drive shaft. Tom Wood's XJ 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. 
  • 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 XJ 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.

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

Solved my vibration issues!

Had a terrible vibration at highway speed. Ditched the old DS for the Tom Woods and everything is as smooth as butter.

Got me to and through Moab

The drive shaft came very quickly and looked beautiful, it bolted right in and I drove it 900 miles to Moab for Easter Jeep safari.Got me through the week and I'm on my way home now. Couldn't ask for anything more from a drive shaft. Glad I got the boot to cover the slip yoke, Moab was dusty.


Everything was a wonderful experience. Very fast shipping and a great product. Highly recommend.

Good to go

The quality and fit of both of these shafts are top notch. I haven't punished them yet but I have no doubt I'll break something else before these. I would highly recommend these to anybody looking for upgrades and the guys in the shop are also top notch. They answered all of my many questions as I'm am auto tech by trade and kinda picky about what I buy. I went with these coz of the reputation they hold and I'll have my lil boy with me most times and I damn sure wanna make it home

Fit perfect and was shipped fast!

I had a custom length front driveshaft made for my 1989 Jeep Cherokee XJ. I ordered it on a Friday night or over the weekend. I was notified it shipped the following Monday and I had it in my hands on that Friday. One week from order date to being received and it fit perfectly. Test drove the Jeep and it was great and as an added bonus the custom driveshaft with top quality components is less $$$ than a factory replacement.
