differential help

i have a 90 yj with a 4.2l, i just put in salvage yard 4.10 stock axles from a 95 2.5l yj because my original rear pinion was flopping around and was going to fail soon... recently i had a laps in judgment and i blew out the spider gears and fractured the carrier... im trying to get this done on the cheap and fast as its my daily driver and im borrowing my dads truck to survive.

both axles are dana 35's

so can i put my 90 carrier in my 95 axle then get like a spartan locker and toss that in and a pinion kit? should i just put regular spiders back in?

i realize now with all the money i put into axles i could have got an 8.8 or a d44 but thats no longer an option i really dont have the money for another axle plus conversion parts

i think you'd still spend less on the 8.8 or d44 IMO. What size tires you running? There must be a reason the d35 imploded on you.

Stop whining about the 'ride' - If your YJ ain't wrangling your soul free, then might I suggest you buy a stationwagon... at least you can fit all your bull**** in the back.

no, it won't work. The carrier break is at 3.55.

And no, it won't work. The carrier break is at 3.55.

Just put the locker directly in the 95 axle.

Since you mention cheap and fast, you are referring to a lunchbox type locker. It replaces the spider gears and crosspin. You don't need to buy anything
Il have to replace the carrier too because i fractured the spider gear housing. I was hoping to use my old carrier to save money.

Worst case scenario: put new bearings in your old D35, swap it back into your rig until you can either get an 8.8 (highly preferable) or repair the other D35, and pull your front driveshaft to be on the safe side.

Check your old axle and see what ratio gears are in it. Just because most I6's came with 3.07's doesn't mean they all did. I've come across a few cases recently with later 4.0/5 speed Jeeps that had 3.55's in them.
