Need the Spicer 1330 u-joint equivilent to the 5-785x 1310.

I need to carry a spare u-joint or two for the new Rubicon's driveshafts.

The Rubicon uses the 1330 u-joint for its driveshafts but this version of the 1330 uses slightly smaller bearing caps than the 1330 used with GM applications.

So I'm looking for the 1330 equivalent to Spicer's 5-785x which is a 1310.

Sealed, no zerk fittings. That's why I ask for the 1330 equivalent to the 5-785x which is Spicer's latest triple-sealed 1310 u-joint.

Thanks for the help. One last thing, I don't need any opinions on whether I should use greasable vs. sealed u-joints. I use sealed u-joints in the driveshafts, period.

Do you have stock driveshafts Jerry?


For a stock front Rubi driveshaft:

The u-joint at the axle pinion = 5-793x (this is a sealed 1330/Saginaw 44 conversion u-joint)
(2) u-joints at the t-case = 5-790x (this is a sealed 1330 u-joint)


For a stock rear driveshaft:

u-joint at t-case = 5-795x (Saginaw 44 u-joint, also called a S44 or 3R series)
u-joint at the axle = 5-793x

If you wanted to confirm any of the above answers, you can click the link below to go to a dana-spicer web page that allows you to search your model jeep. If you then click on any hi-lighted spicer part no. it will take you to a spec table.

spicer search

You will have to select jeep>wranglerTJ>model year....etc.

I had a rear driveshaft built locally for my rubicon TJ rear. My rear driveshaft is not like factory since I have a 1310 yoke at the transfer case. I use a 5-790X at the pinion yoke.

Thanks very much for the info guys! And Ryan, it doesn't have stock driveshafts but Gerald has confirmed to me twice that they are all 1330 and all are the same. I know the OE driveshafts have conversion u-joints for the D44 but I don't know first hand-yet what I really have. I didn't think 1330 u-joints fit the D44 yoke but maybe he has converted the yoke too. I'm not used to working on a Jeep I didn't build from scratch so I seem to always have questions on what is in my rig.
