Found this and thought it could help some people out:

AMC 20 8.875" 2.73 only, 3.07 to 4.56
Dana 28 N/A 3.08 to 3.45, 3.73 to 5.38
Dana 30 7.2" 2.73 to 3.55, 3.73 to 5.38
Dana 35 N/A 2.32 to 3.31, 3.55 to 4.56
Dana 44 8.5" 2.72 to 3.73, 3.92 to 5.89
Dana 50 9.0" 2.72 to 3.73, 3.92 to 4.56
Dana 60 9.75" 3.33 to 4.10, 4.56 to 7.17
Ford 7.5" N/A (no carrier break)
Ford 8.8" 8.80" (no carrier break) (91-01 Explorers)
Ford 9" 9.00" (no carrier break)


Tell me if something is not right and I will correct it.

I'm 99% sure 95-01 axles don't have a carrier break. There are ALOT of different dana 35s out there and that info may not be all encompassing.

I don't think it matters since 2nd gens never came with anything less than 3.55's (that I'm aware of) so unless you're trying to put 3.27's its never going to be an issue.

My 97 originally came with 3.27s but I've since swapped axles so it's not really an issue any more.

I changed it and deleted the Explorer part next to the Dana 35. I know there is a carrier break for the Jeep rear ends.
