I bought a very used 89 Wrangler Sahara and I was wondering what axles & gears it has. Some literature I've found says the rear is a dana 35 and front is a dana 30. Does that sound right. Is the Dana 30 a limited slip axle? What gears should I have, and other than doing the lifted "spin test" & counting the rotations, how can I find out which gears I have?

Thanks, Dave.

Unless they've been swapped, yes you have a Dana 30 in the front and a Dana 35 in the rear. The Dana 30 should have an open carrier if it's stock.

Quote:
I4 Automatic - 3.73
I4 Standard - 4.10
I6 Automatic - 3.54 (normally)
I6 Standard - 3.07, 3.54 or 3.73 - must verify with the tag on the axle or by pulling the differential cover and reading the numbers stamped in the ring gear or by counting revolutions of wheel versus driveshaft.

The axle might have a tag on it as depicted in this photo. The ratio should be the first numbers on the second line of the tag.
