Question Best Drive shafts for 4" Lift 4dr JK

Destroyed my stock Front Drive shaft, as expected with the lift.

Anyone have recommendations? I am looking at Tom Woods 1350's. Anyone have these? Do you like them? Good on paved roads, at higher speeds?

Whatever you do stay away from tatton. The adams shafts seem to always get stellar reviews.

Tom Wood's ( do not believe any [email protected] about them being built in Cheena ) has fantastic info and driveshafts , as does J.E.Reel . I don't know what your intended usage is nor your rig setup but unless you're sporting 40" tires and /or 450hp , even smashing thru boulderfields the JKU would be overkilled [sic] with a 1350 front dual cardon driveshaft. I run a 1310 Woods and it's been awesome except for the requirement ( any brand requires to) of greasing the thing every 2-3 months. Search on JKO as there's a shit-ton of info in threads about this subject.

I have Tom Woods 1350 in front and rear.

Purchased front first as the stock front was the first to go. Easy install and no driveline vibration whatsoever...even at 85mph.

Purchased rear a few months later and same result...no vibration.

Decided to go from a 4" lift to a 3" lift and called Tom Woods to see if I needed to have the drive shafts resized. They said it wasn't necessary and to date, they are correct.

FWIW: I have no experience with any other companies.

I would highly recommend going with 1310 joints. You need/want a fuse in there before expensive axle parts break.
