Espescially since 3:73 4.0L ZJ's are somewhat uncommon. Piece of mind mate..

ok so just had a look, firstly a shout out to the IDIOT who put the id tag on the diff face in so you cant see you info!

Anyway details as follows:

52098940
* 73 610574

I've put a star as I levered off the tag at one end to read the info underneath (as wrong way round) and the first digit was not readable, i'm guessing it's a 3 though as the rear tag was.

Cheers

Grab that low mileage 3:73 axle then.. your golden.

Might be a good move to grab the front also as a spare considering the low mileage.

Ok so update after getting back from the breaker yard,

Donor Jeep axle tag has:

53055072 LS
3 73 5805-4

So am I happily right in saying it's a direct swap for mine without issue?

My current axle:

52098941 LS
3 73 5806-4

Is there anything else I need to consider regarding the axle or just stop worrying/mucking about, praise my good luck at a ratio match and swap em?

Cheers

Looks good, I believe the LS is limited slip, should be good.

Pop the cover anyway and check it before installing. New fluid with friction modifier for the lsd
