D4 Limited Slip 3200 3.73
D2 Limited Slip 4.10
L73 Limited Slip 3.73
L - Limited Slip Differential
C - Conventional Differential

I can't pull axles at my JY because all the vehicles rest on the axles on top of old wheels and you can't bring in jacks. Spray bottle with a 50/50 mix of acetone and ATF will go a long way on rusted or seized bolts though.
Motorcharge I was able to pick up an d4 out of a 97 ford explorer now is there
dimensions anywhere I can weld the perches on or is it pretty much eyeballing to see where it fits.

That is a 35. 8.25 has a very distinct bottom, it's round in the rear like the 35 but has the flat bottom. The pinion yoke gives it away though. You don't have the square tabs at the top that the 8.25 has.

I just thought I would throw this out there since I didn't see anyone else mention it. When deciding which gears to go with on an 8.8 this is one thing to consider. There is a difference apparently between the carriers on limited slip and open. I want to get an 8.8 for my xj and put a spool in it. I found that if I get a 4.10 with open carrier I can put a mini spool in it which costs 100 bucks or so and wont have to pull the ring gear. If you have a 4.10 with limited slip you would have to put a full spool in it which cost considerably more and you have to pull the ring gear to put it in. I am assuming that a locker is the same deal? You probably have to have an open carrier if you want to put in a lunchbox style locker?
