I have an 87 cherokee, not sure what rear or what tcase, the tcase badge is gone and the rear doesnt look like a d35 not sure if its a 44 since it doesnt appear to have the tow package

I just had the same question. I think it's a d44, but if you go to the topic on this forum that's titled "Question about Driveshaft" there's a link that has illustrations of the different diffs.

The cutoff point on the carrier is 3.55. So if you want to go (numerically) higher, you will need a new carrier. Now, if you go with a lunchbox style locker (Lockright, Powertrax, etc.), it should switch over since it's replacing the spiders and not the carrier.

Nice find on the 44, BTW

yea d35 thats what my rear in the grand looks like more round, what was throwing me on the xj was that it didnt appear to have a tow package no hitch or trans cooler...i guess it could have been ordered optional, i can pop the cover and see what the ring gear says to be positve but ill do that in a few weeks when i change the diff fluid, or i could run the vin if anyone knows how i can do that for free

also are the "lunchbox" lockers good lockers? Id like to lock the rear and front but have the front selectable but id also like to keep the option of regearing open if i decide to later on down the road

Good is a relative term. Lunchboxes have the advantage of being relatively inexpensive and easy to install by the DIY'er. They work very well with tires sized 33" and under. The drawbacks are the noise they make when engaging/disengaging...normally clicking, ratcheting, etc. They also don't hold up very well with tire sizes over 33".

It really all depends on what your plans are for the rig and the projected timeframes involved. $2-300 is not that much money to spend on a lunchbox...if you plan to get more than a years use out of it. Once you go from 3.55's to somthing in the 4's, you're gonna need a new carrier...unless you get a full case locker like an Ox or ARB. So if your plan is to regear in less then a years time, I'd save the money for a full case selectable locker.

Most selectables are full case...in other words they are the carrier. So if you get one for 3.54, you'll have to get a new one when you go to 4.10.

ok, i decided on either the lock right or the detroit easy locker, im building a stroker motor with more power and as of now the jeep is pretty decent with the stock gears and in 4lo it goes just fine

i was lookin and they need to know how many splines the axle has on the d44, anyone know off hand?
