dana 30 swap??

i found a dana 30 out of an Grand Cherokee for 60 bucks at a junk yard, its still in really good shape, but i couldnt find the gear ratio on it, does anyone have any idea what it might be? also would it be a direct swap to put under my 02 tj or would i have to weld new brackets and mounts to it like say an 8.8? thanks for the help!

what year Grand Cherokee? why are you replacing your LP D30 with another LP D30?

if its a ZJ, its probably 3.73 or 3.55. but some ZJ's used CV joint axle shafts...you don't want those. and if its a ZJ, the unit bearing is probably different than yours. if its a WJ, it just won't work without lots of welding brackets.

well, im not really wanting to, its just that it is a hell of a deal, i was hopeing it would have 4.10s in it because thats what i am wanting to go to, around where i live you cant find any hp dana 30s because they all get picked clean as soon as they hit the junk yard, i have found a place on the internet where i can order one for pretty cheap, but its just the housing, no axles or gears or anything. lookes like im saving up for one of those.
