Tom Woods driveshafts

I hope it is okay to post this here. If not, mods please move.

I wanted to give props to a vendor that took great care of me.

We always here the bad stories but not as many good ones.

I originally purchased my rear cv shaft back in 2011 when my Jeep was being built.

Recently I had a run in with rock ledge that led to a sheared rear pinion shaft and both u-joints snapping in the front cv.

I sent the shaft back to Tom Woods and told them to look it over.

They called me and said the cv ball had some wear and obviously the joints took a major shock load.

Although the only thing I expected to be covered were the u-joints, they put in a new cv ball, stronger spicer joints, balanced and painted it and shipped it back to me with new hardware.

All at no cost!

Stand up company and customer for life here.

I am no way affiliated with the company or paid endorser just a very satisfied consumer.

Thank you Tom Woods drive shafts.

Eat,Sleep and Jeep!

I'm glad to hear this! I'm about to order front and rear drive shafts from them myself.

I have Toms front and rear DS's, and although they have proved trouble free so far, it's good to know that the possibility exists that they'll work with me in the future.

TW is my go-to shop for driveshafts. I ordered a rear CV shaft from the son of the owner a few years ago and they built it with a wrong U joint. They offered to make it right but the easiest solution was to use a Spicer cross-over U joint (there's an "X" in the part number.)

When I put the 6.0 liter and 6L90 in Stinger I had to change the length of both shafts. Tom's shop was less than 75 miles from home so I took both shafts to him. They were ready in a day or so for a ridiculously low charge. That is why I will be a life long customer.

Yup, A TW supporter here too. I've had his shafts spinning under my rig for about, hmm ...13 years now.
Still tight as ever, and I've wheeled this thing over a lot of trails...
