Axles

Front Axles

Dana 30 high pinion - reverse cut - 27 spline, 1.16" diameter shafts, 7.13" ring gear - used 84-99 (some axles through 91 are vacuum disconnect, 92+ are non-disconnect, 89-95 with ABS have 5-297x u-joints, all 95+ have 5-297x u-joints, all others have 5-260x u-joints)

Dana 30 low pinion - standard cut - 27 spline, 1.16" diameter shafts, 7.13" ring gear, 5-297x u-joints - used 00-01

Rear Axles

(Note on Dana 35 axles sometimes referred to as Dana 35C - The "C" does not stand for c-clip. It stands for "custom" meaning it came from Dana unfinished.)
(Note on 8.25 axles - none of these axles were used on XJs with ABS brakes. If you have ABS, you have the Dana 35. Without ABS you could have either axle. 8.25 axles are c-clip)

Dana 35 non c-clip - 27 spline, 1.18" diameter shafts, 7.58" ring gear, 2.62" axle tube - used 84-89 -- most likely since yours has a date on it

Dana 35 c-clip - 27 spline, 1.18" diameter shafts, 7.58" ring gear, 2.62" axle tube - used 90-01 - possible since your rig is a 1990
Chrysler 8.25 - 27 spline, 1.17" diameter shafts, 8.25" ring gear, 3" axle tube - used 91-96
Chrysler 8.25 - 29 spline, 1.21" diameter shafts, 8.25" ring gear, 3" axle tube - used 97-01
Dana 44 non c-clip - 30 spline, 1.31" diameter shafts, 8.5" ring gear, 2.75" axle tube - used 87-89 on some(not all) XJs equipped with towing package.

Here is the link to another section of the forum to help identfy your rig.

If it says Dana on it, I'd be willing to bet it's not a Chrysler 8.25.

okay thats cool one of my freinds bros had a xj and he said its really hard to find lockers and such for a 8.25
EDIT: so i most likely have a dana 35 or 35c with 3.55 or 3.73 gearing

D44's were only used in 87-89 and the Crycho 8.25 was used from 91 and up. So unless someone swapped in another axle, you definatley have a D35 back there. You most likely have 3.55 gearing. If you have a full size spare and a factory aux trans cooler, you might have 3.73's since they came with some XJ's equipped with the tow package. If there's no tag, the only way to know for sure is to drop the diff cover and count the teeth.
