Recommended Posts

Today I finally got to take my MJ off road. I could not believe the pulling power of the front end. it felt like it was trying to pull my truck in half! All I can say is WOW! I just bought my MJ from a friend for $1,000. it has 172,000 miles on it and the only things I have done to it is remove the tailgate and install a tail gate net and installed brand new 23575R15 wild cat mud tires. It has the 4.0 L inline 6 cylinder. NP 207 transfer case and the DANA 35C rear end. I have never owned a jeep before but I am now officially a comanche freak! I love this truck. i just can't believe how well a 19 year old truck with the stock motor and almost no modifications has stood the test of time. the jeep comanche was truely designed to last no doubt about it!.

Well i Havent got to actually look at the T-case yet but according my chilton it says that my 87 has the 207. i would be very pleased to find out that my MJ had the 231. Either way i could not be more please with my MJ.

 

It 'should' be a 231. The 207 was in the YJ that year, but not the MJ. You can crawl under there and look at the tag on it. Its a circular metal tag and its right in the middle of the case.

Yeah, it'll be a NP231.

 

 

Oh, and you have a D35 axle actually, not a D35C. That's a good thing (not a great thing, or anything, but a D35 is better than a D35C) Unless you have a metric ton, in which case you got a D44...

 

i "think" i had the 35C in mine but i took the shafts out and junk yarded the housing after i put the 8.25 in.

The C stands for Custom, not C-Clip. Dana calls any axle they ship unfinished 'Custom'. So all that means is that Jeep finished the assembly on the axles.

But, the later D35s were D35Cs... Yes, the c-clip versions. Even though C did not stand for c-clip.

 

 

At least, that's how I understood it. I don't really care as I don't do anything with D35s. Although, I might take the one out of my XJ and make it into some weird art work.
