Definitely following this one, been wondering the same thing between Adams or woods. Think woods has a calculation based on tire size and gear ratio to recommend 1350 or 10.

1310 is more than enough for a low horsepower jeep

tom woods has a great warranty and i believe 1 free retube....

I have known people who had had driveshafts made by the guy in east hartford.

If your going to have the driveshafts built local, try and have them made with heavy wall tubes. you wont care as much when you rub them over rocks.

less likely to bend a 3/16 driveshaft tube

Go 1310.  Not only is it strong enough but gives you a better drive angle.  I had a 1330 but toasted it once I went with the belly up skid.

I've used Tom Woods in the past, but decided on an Adam's for my front drive shaft.  Quality Spicer components, high speed balanced, and outstanding customer service.  And it arrived quickly (less than 48hrs after I placed the order) with the best and most secure packaging I've ever received with a new driveshaft...  Plus it came with all new bolts and hardware & a T-Shirt!

That's good shaft information. I always wondered how to care for my shaft. I think a section on beating your shaft is missing though

You should be fine.  Just let them know the the length from yoke to yoke once you have installed you SYE.

There is a joke in there somewhere

in any case the driveshaft should have more than enough to compensate. your hypotenuse wont change much ...

Can't go wrong with either brands. I'm planning on going Adams. I have a thing with "the little guy" I've heard nothing but amazing things about them. They stand behind their work 110% This one guy I talked to hit Adam up on Facebook seeing if the free t shirt had the same warranty as a goof. Few days later he had a new shirt at his house.

  I've run 1310's with 33's and 35's with 4.56 gears with permanent type locker (can't turn it off like an ARB) since 2004...  70% on pavement and the rest on the trail...  If you swap in a high torque diesel or a LS V8 - maybe go with 1350...
