Have one for my '00 TJ, it's been on for about 8 years. Good quality, fit was perfect. Only thing I had to do was replace the u-joint, probably cause I didn't grease it often enough.

Tom Woods puts out the best driveshafts I have ever seen and his customer service is excellent! I have his drive shafts on my YJ conversion and they fit and work great.

Take care,

Do you lose any diff fluid or transfer case fluid when changing these out?

He is a vendor on here, although he made a post asking that you call him directly with questions. I have personally never used him, but everyone I've talked to says great things. Here ya go:

Yup, and even with the current specs I'm running it holds up great. He came on the site a few months ago and offered to fix a fellas drive shaft that had it installed wrong which led to a premature end. When a company is willing to work with you after the product failed because of something you did wrong, that in itself says something.

I am running one up front. When I called to order it Tom himself answered the phone. What a neat guy. I gave him my measurements & he built it special for me.

I got the new yokes too. It's greasable, rebuidable & frankly a work of art. And no, no fluids escape the diff or the transfer case during the swap. The install was pretty straight forward. I did use a piller to get the front yoke off. Directions are good tho.

Very happy customer.

Agreed. I've personally installed (or helped install) three of them including the one on my TJ. Tom's drive shafts are #1.

I put on a TomWoods front CV style when I installed the RE 3.5" Max. So far so good, rock solid.

Great thread! I'm in need and have heard nothing but FANTASTIC things about TW Driveshafts. I'm going for gusto when I order and am going with the heavier one he offers. How to measure and everything you need to know is on his website.
