CV Equipped Drive Shaft by Rugged Ridge®. More is involved in lifting a vehicle than just slapping on a set of taller springs. Other systems, like the steering and driveline, are affected and if changes aren't made the vehicle's drivability and durability can be adversely affected. Steeper driveshaft angles on lifted vehicles can cause vibration and reduce the lifespan of bearings and U-joints. This Rugged Ridge driveshaft uses double cardan CV-type joints, which are stronger and operate safely at more extreme operating angles without vibration.
- Reduces or eliminates driveline vibration
- Double-cardan style CV-joint
- Increased tube thickness
- Greater durability
- Ideally suited for driveline changes or extreme suspension lifts
- Bolts onto stock axles and transfer cases without modifications
- Works with stock to 6" lift
When you modify the driveline of your Jeep or do that suspension lift so you can run those big tires, you're also affecting other systems on your vehicle that, without modification, may not be up to the task. The driveshafts are one such area. This Rugged Ridge driveshaft features a double cardan style CV-joint at one end, which is much stronger and able to function safely at more extreme operating angles. Using this driveshaft will reduce or eliminate annoying driveline vibration that you may experience with the stock shaft on a lifted vehicle.
Although this shaft is equipped with the CV-joints and also feature thicker, stronger tubes, it will still bolt up to the stock axle and the transfer case. It's suitable for lifts up to 6" and backed by a limited lifetime warranty.

Based in Suwanee, Georgia, Rugged Ridge was begun almost two decades ago when the enthusiasts at Omix-Ada decided that even a vehicle as tough as a Jeep could be improved upon. Since then, Rugged Ridge has created over 500 accessories to improve your Jeep's performance, utility and appearance.
