Default Axle Identification

Grands and XJ's come with a variety of axles. This is gonna make it easier for you to figure out which one is under your rig.





The most common rear end:

Chrysler 8.25": It has a flat bottom



The other optional rear axle: Dana 35 or Turdy-5



The rare Dana 44:



And a bunch of other jeep and misc vehicle axles:

one more for the Grand crowd...you could have the Dana 44a rear axle. it has an aluminum center section, with 30 spline axle shafts. i believe only aussies are available as lockers.
