Being I have had many Jeeps, not sure I have had as good customer service as I have personally experienced from Tom. My frt driveshaft is top notch and highly recommend it. I wheeled it at the Badlands the weekend I installed it.

Talk to you soon Tom,

Looks like I'll be using my coupon sooner than I thought. I was under the Jeep searching for a strange noise and found a torn boot....

The ONLY thing i recieved 100% perfect according to spec and without any problems was Tom Woods 1350 and 1310 drive shafts. Customer service was a dream and thats why Tom Woods drive shafts are the BEST in the world.

Great work Tom.

Just finished getting my front shaft in.

Holy crap that front pinion nut can suck it!! I finally put a breaker bar on it and had my wife back up slowly while I kept an eye on everything. Let the Jeep work for me. Other than that a nice clean install.

Thanks for the rebate Tom. Considering I blew my shaft out at TW holidays everything helps!!!

I ground down part of my rear shaft on a rock today.
Realized too late I was hung up on driveshaft. Damage was done.
I will be ordering a Woody to match my front.

i know tom doesnt post here often, but thats cool because this is more of a lookie-loo kinda question. i dont want to email him and bother him as he seems to stay pretty busy.

are all of his shafts built for a specific lift height? i ask because other brands will say from 3-6'' lift or something of the like.

my plan is to replace shafts as i have money while i currently have my 2.5 lift before i go bigger.

Got the rear driveshaft installed Wed night.
OEM was a PITA to get off at the rear flange, but after that everything went smoothly. No more vibes!
Two thumbs up for Tom Woods shafts!

It seems to be a personal vendetta based around a vendor choosing not to sponsor that site.

The bottom line is that Tom chose not to line Eddy's (wayoflife) pockets, so wol chose to trash Tom's products. Unfortunately, there are people jumping on the Wol bandwagon and spreading the rumor, even though they have no personal experience, and pretty much anyone who posts in favor of Woods driveshafts gets ridiculed or just flat out banned. You will notice that the other vendors on that site don't even have the balls to post, even though a good number of them buy, sell, and use Woods products. It really is too bad that they choose to stay silent.

$459 for the shaft. For a front it's yoke on the t-case, flange on the axle. Everything you need to know us on Tom's site. Click on the JK link:

I have a 2012 JKU Rubicon I haven't lifted yet, but I'll probably go to a 3" or 4" TF lift ... can I change the drive shafts while stocked and have no problem with the lift? Is there any extension of the DS when lifting? Thanks.

At a stock stance you should be fine with your stock shaft. Shafts are cut to accommodate the lift. You can add some extra length to grow , but I think there are limits to doing that.

Best bet is to call Tom and talk to him about your plans. He'll walk you through what you need.
