Thumbs up D30 question for the jeep people.

I am looking into getting myself a D30 to put under my explorer. I know .... just go with a D44 but a D30 will be fine for me for now. I was hoping those jeep people might be able to help me find my axle and what would have it. I don't know which jeeps had the hp30, no vaccum disconnect, and the larger u-joints. Anyone have any ideas what vehicles I might find one under?

The ones that have ABS will have the larger U-joints that you want. I have a 93 and it has the non- vacuum, with ABS. As far as what specifically to look for in a year/model I'm not sure but hope this helped a little.

Cherokee's had the high pinions until 2001 I think, that last year I think they put low pinions in them.

1995 and up Cherokee's have 5-297x u-joints

As said, abs Cherokee's had the 297's also

All TJ's have 297 joint shafts, but the housings are low pinion.

As far as locating one go here: http://www.car-part.com

cool beans. This did help alot. I might as well get the axle and all the parts together I think I will need so that when the time comes for the swap there will only be a couple of parts I will end up needing to grab because nothing ever goes right working on a car.
