  • Greaseable CV center ball.

  • 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.
  • Custom made drive shafts are shipped one business day after the order is received. How is that possible you ask? Magic. Magic and hard work.  

Jeep XJ 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. 

IMPORTANT You must also measure the joint size where the shaft attaches to the rear axle. There are two possible joint sizes. Select the size that fits your yoke.

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

Replaced a 10+ year old TW shaft

The XJ that I bought had a woody shaft, but it had been sitting and not maintained for years. After installing the new woody, all the shakes, wobbles and squeaks were gone. This shaft is perfectly built and solid. Easy to install as well.


So glad i got this. Wayyy more strong than running a front shaft in the rear and stopped all my vibration. Will definetely be buying a new front shaft in the future too!

Perfect Driveshaft, super fast shipping internationally

I had a problem with driveline vibrations in my XJ. After trying two cheap driveshafts, this quality driveshaft solved my problems! The customer service was great and they shipped super fast, even though I am from Austria! Should I ever need a driveshaft again, I will definetly buy a Tom Woods shaft!
Now a review for all the german speakers:

Ich hatte bei meinem XJ Vibrationen nach dem Einbau eines SYE. Die Winkel stimmten alle, also musste es an der Kardanwelle liegen. Nach 2 erfolglosen versuchen mit eBay Kardanwellen entschied ich mich für eine Tom Woods. Die Länge der Welle muss in Fahrhöhe gemessen werden. Am Dienstag Abend habe ich die Bestellung aufgegeben und am darauf folgenden Montag wurde sie bereits in Österreich zugestellt! Ich habe keine Vibrationen mehr und die Qualität der Welle ist ausgezeichnet.
Immer wieder gerne!
