Dave- At the moment I'm running a second ChryCo 8.25 that I picked up dirt cheap with an Aussie and Riddler diff cover, custom truss, and alloy shafts. If I end up going full-width down the road, I'm thinking D60's front and rear. If the ChryCo and D30 fail me, I'll work some magic and fit the twin 8.5's out of my K1500. They're already geared to 4.10 with ARB's.

I don't know how hard you are on your stuff, but I swapped a 27 spline 8.25" in to my YJ after grenading two pinions on two different D35's. It's been flawless ever since.

Good luck!
