Tom Wood\'s Custom driveshaft
Has anyone done business with Tom Wood? I just bought a slip yoke eliminator kit and a new driveshaft from him and he is a class act. As I have found not all driveshaft shops are the same. If you need a shaft here is his number. 1877-4X-SHAFT. I just wanted to share this with you all after all he has done for me.

I totally agree. I just got a cv joint shaft and new t/c yoke from him. Excellent work.

How much for the SYE and new driveshaft? I'm looking around for the best deal before I do a suspension lift.

Re: Tom Wood\'s Custom driveshaft
The price I paid was $650. That included an Advanced Adapters Kit and the CV joint shaft. No hidden cost, that included TAX, shipping, and No Core charge. I shopped around and found cheeper kits but they used sawed off tailshafts. The advanced adapters kit is the most complete I found. Other kits will also charge a $200 core for your old tailshaft. Also as I found out CV joint driveshafts are harder to balance. Most shops that use computer balancers only test at 1300 RPM (apx 35 mph on a wrangler). This does not give an accurate measurment and as I found out means nothing when your jeep is shaking apart at 55 mph.

Good Luck,

P.S. The folks at advanced adapters told me that Currie will pay $100 for your old Tailshaft. So they can cut it down I guess.

Re: Tom Wood\'s Custom driveshaft
I know that is yelling, but I did it to make this point - there are several local outfits that are very good and experienced but nobody is as good as my experience with Tom Woods. My 94 YJ with SOA is some 80,000 miles old with his driveshaft and there is no other.
Your mileage WON'T VARY!

Re: Tom Wood\'s Custom driveshaft
Whoever posted the address for Tom's site: thank you. It is a little off though. The actual address is not shafts with an "s". HTH,
