I'm looking to get a locker, but am not sure what drivetrain I have.

I've seen some sites that claim it's a D35 and others say its a 44.

Also, how many splines? and what is the hub diameter?

/thanks

PICS OF A D35 AND A CHRYSLER 8.25 REAR AXLES (8.25 is on the left, D35 is on the right)

http://www.rocklizardfabrications.com/C_8.25_Picture.jpg

the Chrysler is easy to spot because of the flat bottom

if it is nether of these then it should be the 44 . there should also be a tag on the axle or it might say on the diff cover

if it is the D44 look out because it will most likely be a D44A which means that the differential housing is made of alumanum instead of steel. it should be of if u wheel it mildly but if u do hardcore stuff LOOK OUT!

if it dose turn out being the D44A do some research in the grand cherokee section, im shure there is some good info on it.

how much money do u have to spend?

if u got some extra i would say get rid of the D35 and get a ford 8.8 out of a 2003 explorer if u can, my friend just droped one into his wrangler and that thing has one hell of a limited slip that u can beef up or get lockers for em 2.

Switching a rear dif seems pretty challenging. I would have to weld mounts for all of the hardware that attaches to it. I have a GC, how hard is this to do? How much did your friend pay to do this? Parts/ labor?

its a fairly difficult swap, you would need welding experience, after all the welding is finished you will need wheel spacers

so it would cost a pretty penny if you paid for it to be done
