Hey guys its me again for my annual post, haha..
So Ive been needing to fix my Jeep for a while now and just been to busy or just havent made it a priority. Its time to fix the darn thing.

What is the problem you may ask? Well I started hearing odd noises in the rear diff on the way back from Havasu in the middle of the desert off the 177. It was a ticking that seem to hit with every ring gear rotation. I had no tools and still had over 230 miles to go and had a trailer on the back, oh boy.

So I ended up driving home and kept the speeds low, oddly enough the sound slowly subsided. Got home and pulled the rear diff cover off and what should be gear oil looked like anti-sieze! After cleaning it out I realized that the ring gear bolts were actually backing out and grinding away. 2 bolts were out completely and 3 others had the heads sheared off.
And no I never did any work in the rear diff (D35 w 3.07) except for adding a lunchbox locker. Apparently someone doesn't like loc-tite or torque specs, lol.
Long story longer, does anybody have a stock D35 w3.07 gears they wanna sell? I can just use a stock one and cut and reweld my shock mounts and strike plates on to.
I would swap over to 4.10s but I have an ARB front locker for the 3.07 and wont work due to the carrier size break.
Or I can just use some gears and Ill just set it up which is probably easier since I have coilover mounts and whatnot that need to be cut and rewelded. All for a POS D35!
Anyway hope all is well with everyone!

Don't know of any. Wranglers never make it to the junkyard and I don't know that XJs ever came with that ratio. You best bet is an explorer 8.8, which does come in 3.08 which is close enough. The bracket set for a TJ install runs about $125.

Gotcha, well I do have an 8.8 I was gonna use for my V8 swapped Tacoma, I guess I had better check the gear ratio and if its 3.08 Ill just swap it out.

Thanks, thats the smarter way to go anyway. Guess I have to change the master cylinder as well due to rear disk brakes..I'd better do some research.

Just so dang busy building my new shop and developing the property, as well as building trucks almost every day..so much in fact that Its hard to work on my own projects!

I never changed my master. When I finally did need a new one I swapped in a TJ part

my paying job really gets in the way of what I want to do
