LOL... ok. So a 2.35 can be converted to "normal" gears using the appropriate carrier in addition to the gearset.

No guarantees, but i remember that being said. My search of this forum came up emptyish for that being the case though.

Thanks!

Not super relevant to my swap because I already have the 3.54's, but 'tev.

Got the clutch bolts loctited and torqued (40 ftlbs on a 3/8" bolt!) over the weekend.

How easily to Dana 30's break? I've heard the solid fronts are kind of tough for their size.

Just for general assurance to make sure they don't back out.

I've run into a similar problem with engine to transmission dowels as I had with clutch bolts and flywheel bolts... nobody has them!
The Mopar PN is J4005148. I can't get a pair for less than $25. WTF?

Carquest, Autozone, Dorman, Summit... none of the usual suspects have listings for the 2000 Wrangler application.

Ooops... HAH! I lied. My last minute search-Fu turned up a listing on Summit:
https://www.summitracing.com/parts/dur-ad148/overview/

I found a bunch more rust than I was expecting on my target body. I'll go ahead with the swap and just run it until it breaks in half and move the powertrain to another body.
Now to order that E-Locker...

Actually, I've read somewhere that the housing is machined differently for the 2.35 gears. There was a long thread with a bunch of info, but I think it was a victim of the big delete.
