is there any way to tell if the axels are 28 or 31 spline other than pulling them and counting?

I wouldn't waste my time at harrys, go to ez pull in new ringold. Same selection as harrys, and you pay the price in the sheet. Which are lower, I hate harrys I'd rather go to ezpull or buy it new before harrys.

http://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-476...-assembly.html. I found these guys.

They sell an 8.8 that you can build to your specific satisfaction. Honestly hot a bad option for someone on a budget. You could pull one from the yard but then you need parts and adapter kits to get it into your XJ. They have everything you need and a little more. For a few grand you can get a decked out Ford 8.8 where as a fully built Currie 44 or Dynatrac 44 will be significantly more. Maybe your rich or your building a rock crawling nightmare, I really don't know. However if your like me on a budget, and just want something stronger than the Chrysler 8.25 with better gear options, these guys might be worth contacting.
