True, just thought less work for you. I believe the shafts are the same, I just pulled some out to get brakes last week.

Either way you've got. Options!

Re: Liberty shafts in a xj 8.25

The local junk yard is having 40% off sale 4th of July weekend so I'll pick up the carrier and maybe 2 sets of shafts that weekend debating if I should spend the extra time and try to hunt down a lsd carrier or just get the open and get a locker later down the road

Re: Liberty shafts in a xj 8.25

Has anyone here actually put KJ shafts in an XJ? Quick Google search is giving me conflicting info on wether they are compatible or not. No personal experience here, would just hate to see OP buy a bunch of stuff that doesn't fit. I have 8.25 shafts in my shed if you want some measurements off them

I was getting the same info I believe I looked at some Yukon shafts or something and under fitment it included 02-04 kjs so I think if I get one from there I'll be good

Re: Liberty shafts in a xj 8.25

So I was looking at the new carrier for the d30 and had a old cross pin laying around from when I installed my locker and it's way short like flush on one side and about a inch short on the other does the 3.73 and up carriers take a different cross pin or do you think Amazon sent me the wrong one ?

Re: Liberty shafts in a xj 8.25

Just to clear everything up in case someone runs into this thread from a google search after cross referencing with part numbers from autozone shafts for the xj and kj they are indeed different. kj shafts are just slightly longer at 30 1/4 and xjs at 29 inches that's from base to end of shaft not total length
