Just to be sure before I start pillaging JYs:
-I can grab gears from a low pinion (00-01) Cherokee
-I can grab gears from a Grand Cherokee 98 and earlier

Any other common vehicles in the yard I could grab them from? My Eagle is an 82 with the disconnect so I don't have the "oddball" housing even though it's 2.34 based on what I'm reading here.

Otherwise I need a Cherokee Axle from the yard for the back and I'll expect to do some MIG work on that.

Just make sure you get the correct carrier. Here are some pics of an '83 disconnect 2.35 axle and and '82 disconnect 2.73. In the pictures it is clear that gears are offset more for the 2.73 gears I successfully put in 3.54 gears in that axle with no issues. I had heard about the difference in the carriers and was lucky enough to find a 2.73 axle in a junkyard.

I am guessing the height of the ribs on those carriers is about 5/16 inches tall for the 2.35 axle? Trying to figure out how to locate one of these carriers and affirm it's right on ebay.

So, I found this web site. It lists 2 carrier deck heights, a 1.8 and a 1.938 deck height.

I am wondering if they did something weird with the carrier offset.
