D35 or 8.25 or WTF

I am confused as all hell. My rear axle looks like it has a D35 cover, no rolled lip, large bulge in center, but it also has the sqaure bottom shape typical of a Chrysler 8.25. Also have spotted a Chrysler-esque pentagram stamping mark. Could some previous owner have put a D35 diff cover onto an Chrysler 8.25?? Looking to buy a powertrax or no slip for whatever damn axle it is.

This is a 8.25



These 2 are d35's...first is the d35c, the other is non-c.





And then another pic of a d35c...look at the inset on the top right of this pic. On the webbing it says "35C".

Don't look at the cover - look at the housing. The D35 housing is rouded. The 8.25 more closely resembles a stop sign with its straight edges.

The bottom of the housing is straight in a 8.25 corp (see photo above)

If you are that unsure....even from the pics... then pull the cover. It will have bolts holding clips for the adjusters on the caps in the center. If it is an 8.25 other wise if it does not then you have a D35.

Thanks all, but I have resolved the problem. It's an 8.25. The new problem is, I need a locker for it! Who has got one?
