D35 locker in a D30

Finished up about 2hrs ago. I put my Detroit EZ-Locker out of my D35 into my D30 front end. Works perfectly with no problems. Has the normal sounds of a lunchbox locker but nothing that is unbearable. Going on a big ride this weekend can't wait to see how she does on the hills.

Am I missing something? Something's not right here...or, you're a magician!

The only difference between a D35 and a D30 is the axle gears on a D35 are cut out for C-clips. Everything else is identical

There is nothing correct regarding that statement.

Actually all axle parts are interchangeable with a big enough hammer. I just put my Ford 8.8 axle shafts in my D35 to save time on doing the whole swap. Lots of lube and a really big hammer. Plus, now I have a disc AND drum brakes in the rear!

just cause it fit doesnt mean its going to work correctly. there is a reason they have different p/n's from the manufacturer though.

This isn't the first time. There are a couple of buddies of mine that have done this in the past with no problems. I've drove mine around for about 45min this evening. I even took it threw a ditch to flex it to see if it would stay locked in. STILL NO PROBLEMS.

i always judge my work after 45 minutes to something like that may work on the road but flexing it in a ditch i would not call an accurate test of durability under stress. honestly i think if your buddys have done it then you didnt think of it right? sp which statement is true? i really doubt they did it anyway but to each their own. not my jeep not gonna be my problem.

i call these conflicting statements
