In my local junkyard there is an 86 wagoneer that I belive has a factory Trac-lok rear axle. I want to know for sure if it is so i can put it in my 87 Cherokee. Can anybody tell me a good way to check without taking it apart? Also, how well do these work, would it be worth it and does it bolt right up?

You don't need to take the whole thing apart, just pull the cover and look for some little clutch disks on either side of the carrier. I wouldn't trust the stickers or tags, the carrier may not be the original.

Trac Loc is a limited slip differential. It works better than an open diff, but not as good as a locker. The clutches wear out, but they can be rebuilt. If you don't need a replacement for your current axle go with a Lock Right or Aussie Locker. Most, if not all, XJ axles will exchange from year to year.
