Re: D35 -> 8.25 swap parts?

Sorry to dig up an old thread. Have a quick question. Is there a "best" or easiest year for 1989 XJ?

Looking for as close to bolt in as possible.

Thank you

D35 -> 8.25 swap parts?

I think they are all bolt in. The yoke is slightly longer on the 8.25 if your running stock driveline and some lift you won't notice the length difference.

As far as I know off hand is if you have ubolts then your golden. Youl also need ubolt plates. However I did slot the holes in my ubolt plates so they'd work

Good luck and have fun with it.
