      Solid Construction. If you want a smooth ride when upgrading to larger tires or a big lift, the Rugged Ridge Rear CV Driveshaft Kit is just want you need. Backed by a 5-year limited warranty, it features double cardan style u-joints that use two universal joints instead of just one, allowing for smoother movements and reducing vibrations. Designed specifically for your 2012-2018 4-Door Wrangler JK with automatic transmission, the thicker shaft on this rear driveshaft will significantly reduce the chance of damage or breakage in high-stress environments like driving over rough terrain.

      Reduces Vibration and Supports Aftermarket Tires. When you install larger tires onto your Jeep Wrangler, you'll likely find they don't ride as smoothly as expected. That's because the stock rear driveshaft isn't designed to support tires larger than stock. This Rugged Ridge Rear Driveshaft is specifically built to support larger than stock tires, all while minimizing vibrations typically caused once tire size is increased.

      Installation. Designed as a direct fit replacement, this polished steel Rear CV Driveshaft comes balanced and ready to install with the necessary hardware. This driveshaft will easily accommodate up to a 4.5" lift and 35" tires, offering versatility and the ability to grow with your build.

      Application. This Rugged Ridge Rear CV Driveshaft Kit is specifically designed to be used on the 2012-2018 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited 4 Door models equipped with an automatic transmission.
