Can you find this?

Got a little challenge for anyone interested:

I know a lot of you guys are craigslist/ebay/parts-sites animals, and I've been having awful luck. Recently, my rear Dana 35 w/3.73's has S**T the bed, so I need a cheap replacement, ideally a lower-mileage, A grade, complete, junk yard or part-out rear end. Unfortunately, CT doesn't have any Pick'N'Pulls here due to insurance issues. That leaves me stuck surfing the web, and again, I'm striking out.

I'm looking for a replacement D35 w/3.73 gears to put into my '97 ZJ, brakes or no brakes, idc. Just needs to be about $200 or less (preferably less ) and fairly local to Enfield, CT. For the Craigslist-ers, Enfield is part of the Hartford section. I can travel a fair distance for the right price, my dad has a truck I can borrow for a longer trip. Post up whatever you can find!

I appreciate anyone bored enough to help me out here, and the grand reward is an internet high-five! Thanks!

You need a 35 if you want the drive shaft to remain the same.

If you need it quick, car-part.com is your friend! According to it, Webster's in Terryville has about five D35/3.73 of various years and mileage, stock# Y01701 is a '97 rear, A-grade with 154,000 miles for $200.

This search link may help you, it's sorted by distance from Enfield.

For local parts I agree car-part.com is the best. If you want to pay a little more Premierauto-parts.com will locate and ship to you. I use both sites professionally

What "broke" ring and pinion shot or just spit the bearings?

My diagnosis is spit bearings, either pinion or carrier, or both. Leaking pinion seal, slinging fluid all around underneath, terrible grinding/humming the minute the wheels start turning. I replaced diff fluid last week, and it was very dark and stunk something awful, and while there were no large pieces of metal, I did find super-fine shavings in a little fluid in the bottom of diff housing.

Gonna take it to the local Chrysler shop (my cousin is shop foreman, he'll diagnose it for free for me) this week to get a proper professional diagnosis, but I'm pretty prepared for the worse. I just can't see it being something simple like a wheel bearing or ebrake shoes dragging.

Bearing rebuild kit is less then $150 at the local parts house. If your pinion and ring gear is alright why not just rebuild it?
I understand you will know more after a proper tear down. I have seen very few rear ends that need to be replaced. Most of the time we can rebuild them cheaper than replacement.

Taking it to my dealership tomorrow at 3 so my cousin can check it out and give me a proper diagnosis and then we will take it from there. If it's serious, most likely he will help me out with my options, if I rebuild it, I just gotta buy the kit and he will install it, if I replace it, I'll buy the axle and he will swap it, so gotta get the diag tomorrow. Ill post up what the verdict is too

Thanks for the link, but unfortunately their axles are quite a bit more than others I've found, however they are pretty close by. Good resource to have, thanks!

Strange. I've bought axles and t-cases from them for $100-$150. Supply and demand must be kicking in . . .
