Looking for driveshaft lengths of stock trucks

Recommended Posts

I'd like to compile a table of all the different combinations of MJ driveline and the length of their rear driveshaft.

 

I need bed length, engine, trans, 2wd/4wd, rear axle and then the length of the rear shaft from center of U-joint to center of U-joint.

 

what we have so far:

THIS IS WRONG! see below (edit)

 

this is what i came up with...

 

comanche rear drive shaft lengts-eye to eye

 

'86 lwb, 2.8, tf 3speed, np207, d35 = 54"

lwb, 4.0, AW4, NP231, D44 = 48"....d35 = 47"

lwb. 4.0, ax15-ba10/5, np231, d44= 49"....d35 = 48"

 

ax15-ba10/5 (same length) = 1" shorter than aw4

d44, chr8.25 = 1" longer snout than d35

 

prety sure thats all legit...

revised.... green print is actual measures the rest is mathed out

comanche rear drive shaft lengths-eye to eye

 

'86 lwb, 2.8, tf 3speed, np207, d35 = 54"

lwb, 4.0, aw4, np231, d44= 48" d35 = 49"

swb, 4.0, aw4, np231, d44= 41.25" d35 = 42.35"

swb, 4.o, ax15-ba10/5, np231, d44= 42.25" d35 = 43.25"

 

ax15-ba10/5 (same length) are 1" shorter than aw4

d44, chr8.25 have a 1" longer snout than d35

 

can someone re confirm? sorry for the above confusion.

 

amc20 vs d35 snout difference??

4 BANGERS AND 2WD SPEAK UP!

is that an actual mesure of a stock shaft? i ask because...

posted in green and has a manual, (your shaft should be an inch longer) or is his shaft the wrong one? (not original? wich would explain the intact sticker)

 

also...2.5 came with an ax15 behind it? news to me

I have an all original, to the best of my knowledge, 1989 short bed, 2WD, 2.5 and AISEN AX15 and Dana 35. I measured it. I did not use a protracter or anything to insure paralellism. I just eyeballed it but did it very carefully. I will concede there might be a 1/8 in error ineither measurement for a possible 1/4 in total error. If you like I can remeasure and double check. Jim

now your adding to the confusion....

 

i wasnt disputing your numbers but those of shelbyluvv or comanche09 because they both had the same drive shaft measurements and different trannys, which are an inch different in length. meaning there should be a difference in drive shaft measurements.... unlesss they have different length tailpiece :dunno: anybody?

now I'm really confused.

 

the "also" statement was because i didnt know the 2.5 came with the ax15

You didn't know because it didn't come with it. The 2.5 was offered with an AX-5 or AX-4. The only way to get an AX-15 behind a 2.5 is to use a 93+ 2.5 5 speed Dakota bellhousing. The later 2.5 Dakotas were offered with the AX-15... but not very many.

I measured it last night. It is the stock shaft out of my truck. There may be a 1/8" here or there but that is what it measured to be.

Same here, my truck was bone stock when I got it, I'm the second owner. The exterior was pretty bad with surface rust (terrible factory paint) but the under side of my truck, not a speck of rust. Its really beautiful... :dunno:

Add to the confusion some more. Getting a little annoyed at being doubted by my claim of a AX15 in my '89 with 2.5 I went out and checked. First moved the truck to get it out of the snow. Second raised it up high enough to get under it. Checked the manual to determine a sure fire way to ID a AX5-15. Crawled under truck.cold water immediately began dripping down my neck. Measured gearbox. 16 1/2 inches. End of fact finding tour.Scrapeing grease off surrounding area revealed a 3/4 inch (approximate) aluminum plate between tran and bell housing. Does not look original. To cold to do any more came into house and warmed up. As soon as I get the CJ3 I'm working on out of the garage the MJ is going in for further analysis to confirm a growing suspicion. Jim By the way, have 5 MJ driveshafts. They ALL have the sticker on them. Rear ones, Don't know about the front. image_209027.gif

ax15-ba10/5 (same length) are 1" shorter than aw4.... I'm thinking this is true of the 4x4 trannys and the tailpiece of the 2wd ba10/5 is 1" longer than the one on the aw4 which would make the drive shafts equal in length.

 

to figure this out we will need measures of the 2wd trannys tail peices, aw4, ba10/5, and ax15. and would probly be wise to get all tranny measures, 2wd and 4wd, 2.5 and 4.0

From u-joint center to u-joint center it is 58.5 inches. This is from an '89 2wd, 2.5L, AX4, D35, SWB

 

I finally remembered to go measure my 4.0L/AX-15/4wd/dana35 and I got 43.5"

 

SWB

swb, 2.5 ax4 d44= 57.5" d35= 58.5"

 

ax15-ba10/5 (same length) are 1" shorter than aw4

d44, chr8.25 have a 1" longer snout than d35

 

@ ax25 behind a 2.5 from factory, disputed

 

*posibly an exception to the rule, manual and auto trannys being same length

due to 2wd tailpeice (waiting for confirmation)
