Assuming its 4x4 Dana 30 Front .....If it has ABS then it has a Dana 35 rear No ABS then it has a Chrysler 8.25 29 spline good luck with the Cherokee

ok the ABS is not a sure fire way to ID your rear....i have 2 non-ABS cherokees with the D35....



the D35 is more round, while the C8.25 has a flat spot on the bottom....also notice the rolled lip on the C8.25.....hope this helps
