Any defect which may occur after 30 days and prior to 180 days from the date of purchase, the product may be returned for repair, replacement or refund at our sole discretion.

This is the entire obligation of Tom Wood’s Custom Drive Shafts Inc. No other warranty is expressed or implied.

Don't mean to stir a nest, but if you're going to claim something like that about one of the biggest names in off-road and custom, you may want to include all of the facts which lead you to this conclusion.

No I was in the warranty period and still am but still no help from the kid answering the phone. But I took it to another company they took good care of me.

I agree they have a good name that's why I went to them and was also why I was so surprised at there lack of concern with a customer

Why did they refuse warranty on it? If it was damaged when you were rear ended, it would not be covered under their warranty.

You realise that without more information about this, like what caused the driveshaft to fail, and their reason for not accepting the warranty you just appear to be an internet troll having a fit because you didnt get your way.

Now if we had more information like how old the driveshaft was, what failed, and what was the cause for the denial of warranty then we might all agree with you.

But so far with what information we have I wouldnt honor the warranty either if I was them. At this point in time it was mentioned that the jeep was rear ended a post or two up. But you also said "I took it to another company they took good care of me. "

So if the jeep was wrecked or another shop performed any work at all to it as stated in their warrenty...

Not covered in warranty:
Malfunctions due to improper installation, functional or design parameters, tampering or modification.
Incidental or consequential damages.
Acts of God or accident
Failures which may occur as a result of lack of maintenance or damaged mating components.
Modifications.
Any modification or repair by anyone other than Tom Wood’s Custom Drive Shafts Inc will void this warranty.

So from the sounds of it with the information I have seen on this thread, you voided the warranty and now your mad that they didnt fix it... Now do you want to tell us what went wrong and why they denied your warranty so we can see the whole story. Or do we just have to keep thinking along this line based on the little information you have given us?

Well, just for the simple lack of details, you're right, we need to stick together and boycott this top notch offloading vendor that has a great name in the industry.
Thanks for posting this because I'm sure you've help numerous people with the decision to purchase any of their products. This couldn't have come at a better time because my buddy was actually taking measurements to place an order for a new driveshaft.
LOL

Never said you had to do anything I just was warning others I actually got busy and didn't have time to give details and quite honestly I've gone over it on the phone enough for one day. Glad to see that know one could believe that a highly regarded company could of treated a customer unfairly. As far as that goes I even offered to by another drive shaft while they took two of shipping it back and forth inspecting it so I wouldn't be out of a vehicle. All I asked was if their inspection showed they were at fault they would refund the money. The refused a said it would be impossible that they shipped a part that could be even ever so slightly out of balance.

We want to see HOW you were treated unfairly. This thread doesn't tell us diddly squat. If you were wronged and I can see it, I will STRONGLY consider that when it's time to do business with them or not.

In the mean time, I'm sorry, but you're pixels on a screen. Help us out here. Make us understand.

The OP had a couple of threads about vibrations and driveline noises, and every time he was asked about checking the u joints or drive line angles, he never responded again.
Wonder if that has anything to do with the driveshaft problems?

Yes all the vibrations and noises and the leaking transfer case was all due to the drive shaft had it rebalanced and jeep runs great and quite no more leaks and I'm not telling anyone not to due business with them everyone can make their own decision I'm just saying I had a bad experience and before I spent money on a product I do research and I do appreciate everyone's opinion weather I share their opinion or not. And this is my two cents.

How exactly did the driveshaft cause the case to leak. Because none of the parts you replaced help to seal the case.

I reckon the oscillations of an out of balance driveline would transfer right through the u joint and yoke to the rear seal causing premature failure~leaks (ever blow a seal? "Just fix the dang thing and leave my private life outta this")
