2000 Xj axle upgrade

The G-friends 2000 Xj has 4 wheel abs, lp dana 30 and a open dana 35 rear. She would like to keep the 4 wh abs. The dana 35 rear axle is starting to bang pretty bad ( Carrier cross pin ) has egg out the carrier alittle. So what would be a better upgraded axle to install under her Xj and still be able to keep the abs? For the front axle I was thinking Hp Dana 30 but what year is the best to use?and for the rear axle i was thinking a 8.25 or dana 44 with a Diy locker or limited slip for better traction. Did the dana 44 or 8.25 ever come with abs or can I just disable the abs on just the front or rear axle or Both with out tripping a fault in the computer and have a abs light come on?


This is her mall wheeler / two track and the tires size are 31X10.50X15

For the front you should be able to swap the knuckles and everything outboard from there onto a HP housing and keep the ABS.

When I did an axle swap in my TJ I solve the ABS light problem by removing the bulb.
