Hi all, curious what year/vehicle rear ends bolt right up for the Jeep YJ.
Even moreso, can someone recommend a D35c Replacement for me that will take the least amount of modification. I did, JUST get done lifting the jeep... but I'm looking to mount 35's with my current 5.25" of lift. Just looking to see what would be easiest. Someone mentioned ford explorer, is it the same width? Is there any hacking/cutting/internal things that need to be changed? I'm new to the game, so any basic explanation, model cars I could look too, would be very helpful. Thanks in advance!
my YJ last night, with dad, on 31x15's. The ProComps are 90% shot.
It sounds like you need a Ford 8.8 upgrade. It's not bolt in, but it's cost-effective. Welding is required. It's a fun project - I'm in the middle of mine right now. Look at my build in my signature link.
Are you sure that you can run 35s without any mods? Even with your 5" lift, the back wheel well will be tight for offroading.
You can find a 8.8 with 4.10 and LSD. An8.8 is a bit narrower than a d35, but not enough to cause problems. The rear yoke has a flange on it, so some driveline work will need to be done. The parking brake will take some playing with to get it to adapt to the factory setup
