YJ rearend 35 or 44???

first let me apologize for my lack of jeep knowledge. I am new to the jeep world and loving everyday of it!!

I need to replace the diff gasket and yoke seal on the rear. the parts store asked me if i had the dana 35 or 44? how do i tell without tearing into it. I bought the jeep off craigslist recently and the guy that sold it to me had both rearends replaced to match with 308 gears but not sure if he used the 35 or 44. if i was to guess it would be the stock one that came in with it. 1993 4.0. not modded much other than 31 tires with a 4" body lift. can anyone help me out?

dana 35 should have a round plastic plug in the diff cover... not dana 44 ever came stock on a yj... also does it really have a 4" body lift?

That's a Brilliant Post!

that looks like the daystar or jks 1.25" body lift as it also gives a new lower section, unlike some that stack a new spacer on the old bushing.. could be a bit more though.

It's not the rear it's from the yoke, need a new seal. The fluid is just being blown to the rear.

Thumbs up

thanks guys!! im thinking i might go ahead and pull the cover off anyway and change out the fluid. it tends to whine some on the downshift so i want to take a peak inside.

i noticed the U-Bolts to and have been meaning to cut them off a bit. looks foolish.

I'd get 3 or 4, and the whining could be the trans unless you are sure its the rear diff.
