diff - xt to xw

gday,
just wondering whether i could use a xt diff center with 3.5 gears and housing and put it in my xw with no mods
or will i have to take out the xt center and put it in mine and use my axels.
cheers cam

I would say that the XT diff assembly should bolt straight into an XY.

No need to do any mods at all I would think...

Whole setup should take under an hour plus bleeding the brakes...

I haven't opened a diff since 1990 - just get another one and bolt it in - I don't even disturb the brakes anymore, except to unhook the handbrake...

Re: diff - xt to xw

same diff, i think the axles on the xt were thinner than v8 xw/y.
