How about this, if you had the Jeep Spirit, you wouldn't abuse the rest of us trying to enjoy a nice day out wheeling by bringing your brokeass broken down junkyard crap out to play where it can't handle it?[/QUOTE]

Joe now that is funny.... might as well just put in blocks and weld them to the axle and frame.
A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.
I think Joe's solution would work fine! It wouldn't work high performance because the short control arm on the axle would put huge stresses on the connecting bolts. It should follow the spring geometry without binding anything seriously.
My 69 Mustang had bolt on ladder bars to control the axle wrap but they would put too much under the spring to get caught off road. It worked out good for me though. I was taking an offramp of the Garden State parkway when a wheel and axle passed me, I guess my bearing went bad. When I straightened out I was skiing on the ladder bar It ground down a half an inch before I could stop but it prevented ripping the crap out of my brake system that was now on display to the world.
I'm mentally working up a bolt on design for an 8.8 (using the 8.8's case casting's robust vane on the right side of the nose), but I know of nothing for a D35, which I doubt you want to spend money on anyway.
No. it's very crazy. The 8.8 has unique external casting attributes that no other axle has. Here is a photo I found of a D35 and an 8.8. Notice the huge thick vane at the nose of the 8.8 case casting (bottom), with three holes in it. That panel is 1/2" thick and was the mount for a shock absorber style anti-wrap on some applications. I am dreaming up a wrap bar that bolts to that nose panel and to a 'rock ring' type diff cover in the back and the two opposing points in the wrap rotation. I've just got too many other things on my life-plate to do it now, and not really having any wrap damage for years doesn't move it up the list.
