From the Stock Specs sticky:

Quote:
Dana 35 non c-clip - 27 spline, 1.18" diameter shafts, 7.58" ring gear, 2.62" axle tube - used 84-89
Dana 35 c-clip - 27 spline, 1.18" diameter shafts, 7.58" ring gear, 2.62" axle tube - used 90-01
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


All 8.25's are non c-clip axles. 90+ D35's are all c-clip. 97 and up, the 8.25 has slightly thicker axle shafts and a higher spline count. So it's a little stronger. The flip side it that you have more options in terms of lockers with the D35.

i don't know if you typed that wrong or you just have no clue but you are absolutely wrong on that one.

all 8.25's are "C" clip axles.the only axle to ever come in a Xj without "C" clips was the dana 44.i can't remember if it came in the Xj or Zj but there are some versions of the rear 35 that came non "C" clip.

Yea...that's a typo. I actually meant to type that all 8.25 are c-clip towards making the distiction that only 90+ D35's are c-clip as well (89 and prior D35's in XJ's are all non-clip).

As for the D44, the question was 8.25 vs. D35...so I didn't include it's specs...
