Jeep trac lok question

I have an 2002 wrangler X with a Dana 35 rearend. Is there a physical difference between it and a 97-2001 dana 35? I bought a brand new dana 35 completely loaded trac lok carrier for 175 dollars officially the part number is 74210x which was the part number for 97-2001. In 2002, the tac lok case part number changed to 708183.

I did search using there diff wizard and they do not list a different part number for any locker or posi for any dana 35 1997+

It should be the same, just make sure the carrier is meant for the gearing you have. 3.73 down or 3.92 up

Yep it is the same, just be sure to shim it properly so the backlash is correct and that that you have the correct bearing preload when you're done.
Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.

Thanks for the replies. I'll get this put in no problem. I have the dial indicator, shims, and marking compound ready.
