U bolt yokes for rubicon

Anyone using the U-bolt style yokes for tj rubicons? If so were did you get them. Cant seem to find them anywhere. The tabs on my front differental yoke are worn down causing play.

If the cast tabs on the yoke are worn down, you need to replace the Pinion Yoke.

You should be able to get them from your local drivetrain shop

Using u-bolts to hold the u-joints in place is an invitation to overtighten them which can crush the u-joint's bearing cap and ruin the needle bearings underneath. If you're careful not to overtighten them, which is easy to do, you'll be ok.

That said, the factory straps are more than strong enough as is. Heck, Blaine (aka mrblaine/Black Magic Brakes) still uses straps to hold his u-joints in place on his monster rig and rigs he builds that do the toughest trails in the U.S.. So do I now, after having used u-bolts before.

Thanks for the tip Jerry. You wouldnt happen to know what the spicer part number is for the yokes would you? Was gonna order them from advanced through my parts account at work but didnt like the fact that when i look up the rubicon its the same number as the regualr tj.

Since that side of the u-joint that connects to the axle yoke is a 1310 size, that the strap part number is the same makes sense to me. It's a combination 1330/1310 u-joint... 1330 where it connects to the driveshaft yoke, 1310 where it connects to the axle yoke.

I was under the impression that the pinion yoke end is a saginaw 3r size and the driveshaft end of the yoke is a 1330. At least thats what it says when i look up the 5-212x that the 05 rubicons call for. Thats what led me to belive the yokes are differnet for a rubicon.

Maybe they changed the u-joints for the Rubicon but they used to be a 1310/1330.

According to the chart i found on here 03 and 04 rubicons and 05 and 06 use the same joint at the front pinion yoke but the rear pinion changed.
2003-2004 Rubicon Models
Front DS @ Pinion: 5-212x / 5-793x
Front DS @ CV/T-Case: 5-213x / 5-790x
Rear DS @ T-Case & Pinion: 5-3147x / 5-795x
Axle U-Joint: 5-760x


2005-2006 Rubicon Models
Front DS @ Pinion: 5-212x / 5-793x
Front DS @ CV/T-Case: 5-213x / 5-790x
Rubicon w/ Rear DS #410AD @ T-Case: 5-3147x / 5-795x
Rubicon w/ Rear DS #410AD @ Pinion: 5-212x / 5-793x
LJ Rubicon w/ Rear DS #585AA @ T-Case & Pinion: 5-153x / 5-785x

Thanks, that's where my problem was, the Rubicon's rear yoke changed in 2005. Thanks for the info, I'm bookmarking your information since it is so concise for the Rubicon 03-04/05-06 yoke change and u-joint part numbers.
