Default Chrysler 8.25 open carrier

I have a 95 xj so i am pretty sure the axles are 27 spline. I wanna upgrade to 29 spline so that means id have to change the carrier. I have been searching for months in jy where I live and it havent had any luck. I do not want to spend $400+ for a new carrier so I was wondering if anyone would have a 29 spline open carrier lying around that I can buy for cheap.

Found this used one on eBay for under $100. I'm doing the same with my 8.25, except I'm putting a TrueTrac in with 4.56 gears.

Now that is something that never would have occurred to me. That the housings are the same and by changing the carrier you can go from a older 27 spline to a newer 29 spline
in an 8.25 rear.

Are you doing the the TrueTrac install yourself? Hoping if so you will post pictures and whatnot. I have been toying with the idea of this for my '00 XJ. Thinking it would be better
for in the snow seeing how she is just a DD.
Guessing this is the one:

I know that everybody says that this is better then going with a TracLok but in an effort to keep my Jeep Jeep I might go with this:

Clutch packs are the supposed weak point with this idea though.

I've got one laying around (has Trac-Lok). Shafts as well if you need them.

Go on Craigslist or the junk yard & get a entire axle assembly for around $200, give or take. This is a much easier option & you can do it in the driveway in a few hours with minimal tools.
