Jeep Driveshaft

The Jeep driveshaft is a component in the drive train of your vehicle, helping in the process that carries the power of the engine to the wheels, allowing the wheels to propel the vehicle. The drive train components form a very efficient chain of power transfer, taking the torque power produced by engine combustion through a number of steps that begin with the transmission, which receives power from the engine crankshaft through a connection formed by the clutch assembly. The Jeep driveshaft is connected to the output shaft of the transmission at one end, to receive the engine power, and to the differential pinion at the other to transmit it to the differential, which will slow the rotation with a gear reduction before passing it along to power the drive wheels. To perform smoothly, without producing excessive vibration as it rotates at the speed of the engine, the Jeep driveshaft must be well balanced and straight. Several universal joints are placed along its length to give the Jeep driveshaft support, yet allow it just enough flexibility to move with the suspension system of the vehicle without becoming bent or damaged, maintaining its connections to other drive train components. Should the Jeep driveshaft become bent or unbalanced the vibration that can be caused by such a situation could easily damage other drive train components, with the transmission being the most likely to feel the effects.
