Exclamation new rear end HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

so i currently have a 89 yj lrd the previous owner did the 350 chevy w/ turbo 350 trans install. he left the dana 35c rear and dana 30 front with 3.07 ratios. I just recently smoked the rear differential bearing diff nearly caught on fire. i realize with the horse power coming from the chevy 350 the dana 35 isnt worth rebuilding and should probably upgrade the entire rear end. i have been looking for a dana 44 rear that will fit my yj with 3.07 gears. Is this even posible or does anyone have any better ideas or solutions.

email me jacobw_5150@yahoo.com

Ford 8.8 rear end form a explorer 95 year I believe. Should be fairly easy and it should give rear disk breaks also.

Ford 8.8 or a D44 out of XJ or YJ. I think you will have a hard time find one that will match your front. Most are 3.55 to 4.10's. You will might have to regear your front or swap it our with a matching ratio.

Pumpkin is on the wrong side for the front, and they are much more narrow than a yjs 60.5 wms measurement
