Key product features

  • 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 Spicer 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 YJ 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 The '87-'93 model YJs use a 1310 series yoke at the axle. '94 and '95 models used a wider 1330 series joint. Please select the correct year for your Jeep in the drop down menu.

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

Worked great. Fixed my vibration problem. Probably the best 500 I've ever spent.

David Bouchard
First time buyer

I am a cheap skate. I have modified the front XJ driveshaft in the past for my trail rigs but this time it was different. I needed a well built, reliable, quality driveshaft for my daily driver that MIGHT see trails some day. So I called Tom Woods and went ahead and got me a double cardan rear shaft for the YJ. The website was very easy to navigate, and the guys I talked to on the phone were extremely professional. The shaft was built and shipped very quickly. Of course the install was simple, shaft was balanced and I have no issues out of it. Thanks for a great product guys.

Not my first and not my last

I did a 5.3 swap on a yj with the novak parts and an sye. I gave them a call to make sure my meaurements sounded reasonable and to figure out what angle wedges to get for the rear axle. The driveshaft fits perfectly. If I didn't need it under the Jeep, I'd frame it.

YJ rear driveline

I did a LS swap and axles in my 93 YJ. Ordered a driveline from Tom Woods and it was built to exact specs runs extremely smooth. The price was very competitive and it’s built in the USA! 🇺🇸
