Adams 1350 front drive shaft

Has anyone tried out this driveshaft? I'm looking to replace my stock one. If anyone has any other suggestions I'm open to them too as long as its made in america and uses all 'made in america' parts (Spicer/neapco)

Not sure what you are putting it on but a 1310 would be better for a non hemi/ls powered jk

Some build info here:

I have an Adams 1350 in the rear. Very stout and very little weight to balance it. No issues with vibes. I went 1310 in the front as it is much less likely to have the jeep weight on it.

all is good with both my 1310s. price was great too. i had some issues with install, because i'm a noob, and they were very easy to get hold of and very helpful.

have about 3k on mine and running at 1.7 deg caster and i think i can still add a little more without having vibes

I have ran both the 1310 and 1350 Adams driveshafts on my JK. The 1350's are nice and beefy!

We also now offer the 1310 driveshafts with solid Spicer u-joints. They are stronger than the grease-able version and recommended if you plan to run 37's.

Intersted as well, how do they install? Different companies have different install designs and there are pros and cons to each and I'm in the midst of trying to learn all that know.

A lot better than when I was at zero lol. I tried to measure with an angle finder and I just wasn't accurate enough. So, I'm just rotating my axle back down a little at a time and getting my caster rechecked.

Thanks everyone for the advice. Looks like I might just go with the 1310 since I'm running the stock pentastar.

So what are the disadvantages of having a 1350?

Ordered front and back from Norm https://www.jkowners.com/forum/member.php?u=12704 on the 27, according to tracking looking at Wednesday for delivery. Great reviews on the DS, excellent customer service from Norm. Personally, now, I have no need for 1350s, when I go to 37s and break the joints I'll upgrade those, if I ever supercharge or get a V8, I'll get 1350s

I finally understand JustEmptyEveryPocket...

Yeah the plan is to go up to 37s in a few months so should I just go with the 1350? And who knows what other upgrades ill be doing once the jeep is paid off.

Adams 1310 front. Running around stock pinion/caster. I do have minor vibes but tire related... I think. (50-70 and fade off)
Jeeps a little jittery on road, I might try a little more caster. Right now my front U-joint angle is 4* which is pushing it.

Adams keeps the front dif flange instead of replacing it with a yoke and replaces the flange on the t-case with a yoke. This way there are no worries about front pinion nut torque. Adams customer service is great. My 1st rear was too short and they sent a replacement as soon as I got them the measurement. My front is not installed, because I was chasing front end vibes and didn't want something else in the mix while I was trying to figure it out, but the rear has been on about 5k miles and is smooth as butter. My vibes were my tires, so the front will be going back on soon. NORM is a great vendor and will take great care of you!! Give him a call.
