Specs. Uncompromisingly tough and burly, Rough Country's Rear CV Driveshaft is 200% as strong as the stock driveshaft, and adds a double cardan joint which helps correct problems caused by 4 to 6 inches of suspension lift in your TJ Rubicon. The carefully placed grease fittings enable lubrication without covering the bottom of your Jeep in grease, while the shaft can bend 30 degrees before binding. This component helps a suspension lift equipped Rubicon handle anything that the trail has to offer.

Construction. Rough Country's Rear CV Driveshaft is constructed around a 3 inch diameter tube and is made of tough steel. It bolts on directly in place of the stock drive shaft, but is twice as strong (200%) and can flex up to 30 degrees before it binds. The double cardan design is tougher and more rugged, and reduces or eliminates rear output shaft breakage and driveline vibration. The rear differential end features a 1330 sized universal joint, and high quality CV joints are included. The grease fittings are mounted well clear of the transmission oil pan. This product is covered by a limited lifetime warranty.

Application. Fits 2005-2006 Wrangler TJ Unlimited Rubicon models.

Freight Notes. Freight items can only be shipped within the continental 48 states, no expedited methods.

      I am installing a 4" Rough Country lift on my Rubicon. Do i need to install the drop bracket included in the lift kit if i use this new driveshaft?

      • When using an extended driveshaft a transfer case drop would not be needed.

      Will this work on a 2005 TJ unlimited rubicon with a 3 inch lift?

      • This is designed for a 4-6" lifted Jeep. You will want to find a driveshaft in your lift size.

      I keep reading on all these driveshafts including this one and others that they work with 4"-6" of lift. Nowhere do I see any notations of which ones will work with stock suspension as a stock replacement shaft. Are there any that actually do that ? maybe a different one than this one? I have a 2004 Wrangler Rubicon M/T Brian

      • At this time we do not carry a driveshaft for stock ride height.

      Does this rear driveshaft fit the 241transfercase? If so is there any other product I need to buy before I bolt it on in there? For reference I own a 2005 Rubicon Sahara Unlimited.

      • Yes, the Rough Country Rear CV Driveshaft for the 2005-06 Rubicon Unlimited fits the 241 transfer case. It is intended for use with 4-6 inches of lift.
