    Hi, not sure if someone could please provide me an answer to this but here goes. I got a 2003 Jeep TJ Sahara that came equipped from factory with ABS, now personally I dont plan to utilize it in my build, however I wanted to know if I am going to have any compatibility issues upgrading to non...

    I have a 1993 YJ with a 2.5L AMC 150 I4 mated to an AX-5 five-speed manual transmission. I am assuming this because I’ve been trying to do a little research and found this article Jeep Wrangler Engine Options - VehicleHistory which noted that for Transmission Options: The 2.5L I4 was offered...

    Hey All, Does anyone know how much torque is needed to break a AMC/Dana 35 axle? I'm building my 1976 AMC Pacer as a backcountry/Gambler500 rig and am trying to determine if it's safe to lock my rear axle. The Pacer has the AMC 232 (same block as the Jeep 4.0L), an open Dana 35 axle, and...
  4. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I've been thinking about simply re gearing my D35 after the accident (see my previous thread) since I already have a locker in it, and since its been extremely difficult to find a Ford 8.8 with 3.55 gears in it. I found something peculiar in the housing near the outer pinion bearing race, and...

    Hello Ladies & Gents, I've had myself a problem recently. (I'm learning, so please don't berate me for my mistake. I know I messed up.) When replacing a yoke & pinion seal on my rear axle, I screwed up/ordered the wrong seal, resulting in the oil leaking out of my diff while driving. What...
  6. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Alright, so I got a wild hair and thought that I could swap in an 8.8 for my dana 35 in the rear. I am about halfway through my project and I am having some concerns. 1. When I weld up all the mounts and mock it all up if my measurements are off a little bit whats going to happen? 2. If it is...

    I am shopping for new DANA 35 rear axles and there is one thing that is confusing me. Why are the rear axles different lengths? Everywhere I look they show different lengths for both sides. The right is showing 29.13", 29.06", and 29.04". The left is showing 29.78", 30.56", 30.68", and 30.54"...

    Hi, I am new to owning a Jeep. I am trying to do all of the work on it myself as well. I have a back and forth wobble on the drivers rear side. I replaced the bearings and in the process noticed that there was play in the axle, in and out movement. Afterwards, I still have a wobble and now the...

    I have a 1997 Wrangler with ABS, I am doing a an axle swap and found a non abs axle. Is it possible to convert a non abs axle to support abs? I am swapping in a new dana 35 as my old one seized.
  11. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I am currently sitting with a seized rear axle on my 1997 Wrangler Sahara, and am in the process of finding a donor axle. I currently have a Dana 35, 3.07 gear ratio; is it possible to swap that out for a Dana 35, 3.73 gear ratio from a YJ model? Or just in general a Dana 35 from a YJ? Thanks in...

  13. XJ Cherokee Technical Forum
    My Jeep is in the shop behind a locked gate so I can't go look at it. Need to order some new rear leaf springs, and the U Bolt kit I need to order with it is different if I have a Chrysler 8.25 or Dana 35. Guessing I have the Dana, but here is info from the build sheet. Does anyone know for...
  14. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    First and foremost I know there are tons of folks that want to tell me to use this opportunity to ditch the D35 and go with a 8.8 or D44 etc etc. I've pre-noted your advice, thanks! So I snapped the rear right axle shaft, and while trying to replace it, I had to ultimately remove the carrier...
  15. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    I have gone through several right side axles on my TJ. I have replaced the first axle about two years ago when the seal was replaced. There was over 1.5mm wear. Because I was stuck on a long weekend in a small town, I installed a used axle with its bearing which was not pitted or worn. During...

    I have an 87 Wrangler with a Dana 35 rear diff, 3.07 gears. The differential case broke where the axle tubes go into the housing. The previous owner had welded it back together before. Anyway I need to find a new differential, and may need new axles too since both wheels are splayed out like...

Get out and take a look , both U bolts on the passenger side rear axle are broke and the pinion is pointing up to the sky instead of at...
