The Q2 has varilock limited slips front and rear. I think Jeep gave the name of ” Varilock” to the limited slips. They actually have the word ” Hydrolock” printed on the center section.

Quadra-trac II in WJ's has open diffs. Quadradrive ahs the Vari-locks, which are what makes it Quadradrive. I believe this is how it works. Then I don't have a Dub.

Okay that makes sense, I'll call him back tomorrow. I also think that the 3.55 gear dana30 has a different carrier that won't except 4.56 gears. True or false?

Not that I know of, I just thought there were two carriers. One for Varilocks (limited slip) and an open carrier.

from what i've read, True. You need to get a larger carrier, if not, with the 3.55 dana30 carrier can only accept the 4.10's.

I could be wrong, but when ordering from 4wheel parts that's what it told me, so I'm holding off on it.

Okay cool! I'll make sure to get a 373 carrier. Are carriers expensive? Should I just find the cheapest housing and get ALL new internals?

Too bad mine isn't useable. I would just get a front axle from a 2wd and rebuild mine! but mine is tweaked and leaks oil from weird spots.

Haha yea. Mine is a salvage title and that front axle is just ghetto with adjustable ball joints to fix the camber and crap like that. So I'll just get a whole new one with upgraded brakes BJ's and paint it and the works. All on my own time over like 2 months.

Couple questions, anyone know where I could maybe find axles online that are used? I cant seem to find any. :/

Also, are G2 Gears, good? I noticed IRO has them forsale at a pretty good price.
