  • Powertrax locker

    I have been researching lockers, and I think I may put one of these Powertrax locker/Limited Slip in. My question is, how do I tell if I have a:
    Dana35 27t Open
    Dana35 27t Open Non-C-Clip
    Dana35 27t Open C-Clip
    Dana35 27t Open IFS
    Dana35 30t Open Non-C-Clip
    Dana35 30t Open C-Clip

    Thanks
    Pete

    What year Jeep? The differentials will have a tag on the differential if its a limited slip. If there is no tag it's probably open. If it's a TJ it's a Dana 35 C Clip. The Dana 30 will not be a c clip. Here's a couple of links.

        If it's a 2003 it's a Dana 30 Open differential with a 27 spline axle. The rear is a Dana 35c Open Differentia l(which is a c clip) with 27 spline. I would question putting a locker in the Dana 35c. Some do it, but I chose to swap in a Dana 44 before adding a locker in the rear. You may be alright if you stay with a 31" tire, but like I said I chose to do an axle swap first before the locker. I ran a front locker and a limited slip in my Dana 35c for the 1st year. It was very capable offroad and still had good on road manners. Any Locker in the rear differential will kill the nice road manners of an open diffential unless it's selectable like and OX or ARB.

        Good Luck
