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.

YJ Double Cardan Rear Drive Shaft

awesome drive shaft looks great and functions exactly like advertised. I have been a customer for life after ordering my SYE kit from Tom Woods and got great customer service

Yj rear shaft

Rear shaft fit perfect, nice welds and paint job. No vibrations and no problems. This is the second time I have used Tom Woods driveshafts for one of my custom builds. I will continue to use them in the future.


Very happy with my drive line fit perfect. Very happy with how fast they got it built and shipped out will buy from them again

Good stuff

Fit right in

Always wanted one. It’s Everything it’s cracked up to be.

Used all the information on their website to set pinion angle and get the length for my YJ double cardan drive shaft. Had a question, called the shop and got an answer in about 30 seconds. Got my new driveshaft in the mail and installed it. It’s everything I read about in the magazines. Quick, easy install, great part. At some point I’ll get a front driveshaft.
