i just bought a 89 cherokee that need the gears in the rear replaced but the rear diff is a dana 35 that came out of a 84 cherokee. i was wondering how hard this job is on the non c-clip 35 or if i should just take it to garage. plus is there special tools needed for this little project. input you be great.

my usual response to this type of question is.....

if you have to ask then bring it to a garage.there several tools you need as well as knowledge for setting pinion depth,backlash,and proper torque setting to everything.

now can a person learn to do it yes,could they teach themselves yes they could.does this mean anybody can pick it up just by reading a book ,no.i would suggest if you want to learn find somebody that does know how to do it and has all the proper tools and have them show you what it takes.
