    Hey I'm looking for a rear drive shaft for a 1967 Cj5, I have the one from the transfer case to the front axle but I still need the one going from the tranny to the back axle. Thank you, James Wheatley.

    Do you have the yokes in place? Get a measurement so you get correct parts the first time. I surely have a couple shafts.

    Do you have a driveshaft shop nearby?
    I had custom shafts made when I swapped in my T-18. The technician was quick to point out how custom driveshafts are made of thicker (better) tubing material than the stock units.
    I thought I was only going to shorten the rear shaft, but he insisted on making a new one for reason stated above. He showed me the weight comparison of the new and old...made a believer out of me. It also had a good warranty. :)
    ...just food for thought...I take my CJ into very remote areas, often alone, so I try to take all the possible weak links out of the 'picture'. (y)

    I believe it's about 22", I was surprised at how short it was.

    I certainly don't blame you for wanting the best possible parts. I'll be using my Jeep as a farm Jeep so I understand wanting good parts.

    What Motor do you have? The V 6 is shorter than the F 134 drive shaft.

    Different transmissions used different length driveshafts as well.

    An accurate measurement would be helpful. I have a couple laying around but need more accurate than about.

    I have a V6 Buick, I believe it's the original motor that came in the Jeep.

    I'll try and get an accurate measurement this afternoon, how much would you want for a drive shaft?

    Hey so I found a driveshaft that will work with a little bit of modification. But today I ran into yet another road block, I took my rear wheel off on the passenger side and discovered I'm missing my brake drum. I have the springs, cylinder and pads but I need the actual drum. Does anyone know where I can get one?
