I know about the sua. Thats no issue easy fix really. The grands are the same bolt pattern no? I dunno I'm not a jeep guy just figure hes gonna be running 33s and he has a heavy foot. The 8.8 looks like the best option. Thanks guys.
and 8.8 is good if you want to do a little fab work to get it in. quick bolt in swap for a better axle is the 96+ Chrysler 8.25 from a Cherokee, 29 spline shafts and quick swap. plus they tend to be dirt cheep.
i was thinking the older grands... which are 6lug. my bad.
I ran an 8.8 in my YJ. They are 31 spline 1 3/8 shafts and are readily found with Trac-Lock limited slips. 5 on 4.5 lug pattern, same as small Cherokee's. The only weak point I have heard of is the axle tubes possibly spinning inside the housing, which is easily avoided by stitch welding the tubes to it with a high nickel rod or wire. They are stronger than a d44 imo due to a slightly larger ring gear and another spline and definitely stronger than a 8.25, plus disk brakes in a 95+. They are a c-clip type axle, but I was never worried about that because if a shaft did break it would be held in by the disk and caliper. The only disadvantage is that locker selection is a little lacking if that will ever be a consideration.That being said, if you happen to find a Cherokee d44, it's not a bad way to go considering it's a direct bolt in.
Ford 8.8in, Same bolt patternGet one from a 95+ they are disc brakes. and remember they are SUA.
