If you have ABS or if its an 87-93 w/o tow package which had a D44, then it would be a D35 in the back. From 94 on the Chrysler 8.25 became more prevalent, though it was in '97 when they went with 31 splines, as opposed to 27 or 29, IIRC.
Ok thanks. I'm not real knowlegable on Jeeps. I only know what I've learned from my dad's old CJ5.
I figured it was a smaller Dana. 35 was just a guess.
I'll have to go look under it. It was a parts rig my uncle had bought to keep for his XJ.

also you have alot more than just that initial cost when sasing, by the end youll prolly have 10k+ in it
The biggest tire I ever run is a 32. MAYBE a 33. And I know SAS's are expensive, but with the parts I already have, and what I have the ability to do at our shop, I'm just not seeing 10k. MAYBE 5 or 6k.
But it's ok, you guys have already convinced me. Even just 3k into my 85 and I'll be better off.

Plan on it. Just have to convince my dad to stop sitting on it.
