I'm sportin a Tom Woods drive shaft on my 2001 TJ and I have to replace the u joint closest to the rear axle. Is this gonna be a stock part or something hard to find??
How about the two forward u joints closest to the transfer case? Are they a stock part ??
Thanks for any info you guys can offer.

Remove the shaft and see if you can find some markings and call tom.

Yes they are standard 1310's unless you have something funny in your jeep. IE dana 60's or rubicon 44's. IF you have rubicon 44's you then have 1330's at the diff and 1310's on the two up next to the t-case.
Just in case you have dana 60's :p--- you will have either a 1340 or 1350. 1350 are ford sizes and 1340's are GM Chevy sizes.

I strongly recommend a Spicer 5-785x which is Spicer's latest triple-sealed u-joint over the greasable u-joint Tom normally ships with his driveshafts. If you really want to have to continue greasing the replacement u-joint, go with a Spicer 5-153x which has the grease zerk. By the way, the grease channels on greasable u-joints weakens the u-joint body. :)

^ agreed Mr. Tom is fixed my shaft and it is getting sent back to me today. I really don't like there u-joints tho. I broke one in 8 months of it being on the jeep.
