Hello All !
I just bought a GC 5.9 with a barfed frt axle ( Dana 30 3.73)
Looking to replace it with something from the junkyard.
What models have what I need?
THANKS FOR THE HELP!

i would say almost any grand cherokee.. i have a 93 limited 5.2 L and a dana 30 in the front w/ 3.73s.. id say try to find the closest to your year but im sure any grand will work just study yours and... match it.. i was there all day today checkn em out tho.. seriously even an axle from a 90 cherokee maybe even later would mount right in... just go for newest cleanest etc.. good luck man!

Thanks!
So even front axles from WJ's ??

How do I tell from the outside if it's the correct ratio?
Does the little metal tag say?

Thanks Again!

I would stick with ZJ or better yet XJ axles.. There is a metal tag on the axle..

The first line should say something like.. 445 3 55 or 445 3 73 something like that...

Thats 355 and 373 gear ratio respectively..
