Hello all.

I am buying a '91 XJ for spares. It has several goodies, including almost new 33" tyres with the requisite modifications. I actually still have to decide whether it will be less of a problem to transfer these goodies to my previous 93' XJ, or to bring the "new" XJ up to scratch.

Either way, one of the goodies I would like to use is the rear LS equipped rear axle of the "new" XJ. What it doesn't have is a universal joint flange in working order [1]. So, my question is; will the UJ flange from my '93 Chrysler 8.25" fit the '91 D35 rear axle [2]?

--
[1] The previous owner (my nephew, incidentally) was "trying to find out what it could do"[3], in which process he managed not only to shred the aforementioned UJ, complete with mounting points, but also the drivers side front axle UJ.
[2] Yes, I realise that I will be going to a weaker axle, but I figure that, what with my 8.25 being of the older and weaker type, the difference will not be that great, and the LS will be worth more when offroading.
[3] It is debatable whether he succeeded, but he definitely found what it couldn't do (apparently; jump off a 2 meter cliff into a snowdrift stuffed with boulders).

Best regards,
Kári

Read and compare these specs. I would definitely stick with the Chrysler.

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

I haven´t actually checked the spline count, but as it is from a '93 model, the Chrysler should be 27 spline.

As I said, I know I will be going to a weaker axle, but thought that the difference would not be too great. Also, I will be keeping the Chrysler as a spare, so if I manage to shred the D35 I can always switch back. Edit: Forgot to add, the reason I'm leaning this way is that the D35 has a limited slip in, apparently, good working order.

Anyway, anybody know if the driveshaft yokes are interchangeable? (Sorry I should have said yoke rather than flange in my previous post. Blame late night thickheadedness.)

The yokes themselves aren't interchangeable. They both use the same size u-joint and straps so the driveshaft should bolt up with either axle under the Jeep. But, the 8.25 itself is either an inch or two, longer or shorter, don't remember.

Thanks, Orange. I will have to get a yoke from a wrecker then.

Do you mean that the input shaft / pinion is an inch or two longer/shorter? Doesn't that mean that the driveshaft also has to be shorter/longer to compensate? Or is this corrected for in the design of the yoke? I'm wondering if I should get a driveshaft also, to be on the safe side. He said that the shaft looked okay, but I'm a bit dubious, knowing that it has been torn loose from it's moorings. Also, does 231 vs. 242 affect shaft length?
