Well to popular belief, my bet is the Northern ones. After spending a year in FL Ive noticed the obvious 2wd XJ's and tons of D35s.
Did Jeep geographically send out specific packages according to state and need. In the south i saw my first of many 2wd jeeps and saw about 3 jeeps with 8.25's and 4wd together.
Up here in NH/ Northeast all i see are 8.25 4wd XJ's, is this because Jeep expected heavier use, more actual use and more need for heavy duty axles?
I am hoping this is the case so when i head out to Utah I can find a jeep and not worry about finding a million D35's along with them

Motor vehicles are ordered by the dealership or future owners depending on their needs. Last I checked it was rather unusual to have massiver snow storms or multiple day ice storms in sunny FLA. Us Yankees get 4x4 because it helps get out of the driveway and off to work or play. Try plowing through a 4 foot snow drift after 18 inches of snow in 2wd open diff Cherokee. Two days later we got 16 inches more snow.
I have seen a few D44's here in MN, but very, very seldom any 2wd Cherokees.

Seems to me that tword the end of production they put the 8.25 more than the D35. I'd guess and say that approx 70-75% of the 4wd in my area have the 8.25. It's about a 50-50 split on 2wd and the 8.25 around here as well.
