1986 Jeep Cherokee Pioneer - V6 2.8 - 5 speed

Reading the "stock specs" I should have a Dana 35, right?

What throws me off is that everyone says the Dana 35 uses a rubber fill hole plug.

Mine is beafy, metal and threaded. Not rubber.

Aside from that, it looks like a Dana 35.

I'll post a picture later.

If anyone can help me out with identifying this rear end that would be great!

Thanks -

Tim

Not all D35s have rubber fill plugs.

Look here...about 1/3 of the way down for a link to a picture of a D35 and 8.25 side by side.

yours is an 86, it will definately be a Dana 35 without a c-clip.

Thank you.

Do you guys have any suddestions on how to get two stripped bolts out of my differential cover? They're the "star" type hex key (for lack of the correct name) style. I just can't get enough of a grip on 'em to loosen them.

I took out 8 of them today and it just so happened that the last two (on top) were the only stripped ones. I was pissed. I tried a few times but I eventually just gave up, but the 8 bolts back in, topped off the fluid and said the hell with it.

The Dana 30 in front was a breeze in comparison. I was very appreciative for that!

vice grips , best way is to weld a nut on top of the bolt and then just put a wrench on it .
