Rough Country 5072.1 Details

Rough Country Rear Double Cardan style CV driveshaft 5072.1 for the 4WD Jeep Wrangler is necessary for Jeep JK models equipped with 3.5-6 inch short arm suspension lifts or 2.5-6 inch long arm suspension lifts. It features a replacement flange for the differential pinions as opposed to using an adapter flange and are machined from solid billet steel. They are designed to accept standard "off the shelf" mating flanges so if these flanges ever break, you at least stand a chance of getting a replacement part from almost any drive line shop. This also nets a longer drive shaft with the center of the universal joint closer to the pinion bearing.

Features

  • Collapsed Measurement: 22.875 inches
  • Extended Measurement: 26.375 inches
  • Eliminates contact between the stock drive shaft and oil pan on automatic transmission models.
  • After lifting your Jeep JK Wrangler a CV (Double Cardan) drive shaft is a good choice to eliminate vibration issues and provide the longest lasting drive shaft.
  • Includes better quality CV joints.
  • Shaft strength is twice as strong as the factory equipped drive shaft.
  • Grease fittings are out of the way of the transmission oil pan meaning you get grease to the joints that need it and not all over the bottom of your Jeep.
