XJ Rear Drive Shaft, Double Cardan

Rear drive shaft for Jeep XJ Cherokee. 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

Tom Wood's XJ drive shafts are built using only the highest quality components. Key features listed below. 

  • 2" diameter .120" wall USA made DOM tube. 
  • Forged slip yoke. 
  • Greaseable CV center ball.
  • Your choice between Tom Wood's exclusive Gold Seal greaseable universal joints or non-greaseable joints.
  • Your choice of spline and slip yoke options, more about that here.
  • 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 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.

XJ like new with SYE and driveshaft

Well done Woods team! I drive 100 miles/day on my 98 XJ and experienced vibration from 60 mph on up. Installed SYE on my NP242J and new driveshaft 2 weeks ago and what a huge difference. Parts were high quality, instructions clean and clear which was nice being a first timer. Parts shipped next day from order. I have about 800 miles on the new stuff. The vibration is gone and fuel economy is up 2 to 3 mpg. Thanks for the great products and customer service.

I replaced a hack and tap RE driveshaft after i put a sye on the jeep. The difference is amazing. This new driveshaft is pure beef compared to the RE.


Great product. Got it really fast.
