Broken Dana 30 pics
 
We got this Dana 30 out of a high mileage 1984 XJ a few years back.
I ran it in the Molly Mule (Red 1988 XJ) and then in the Tweety Jeep (Yellow 1989 XJ).
I put a lot of off road miles on it without ever having problems.
Here are the pictures of when she finely broke.

We just thought it was the R & P until opening the cover.

At least they are cheep and easy to get. I just bought a high pinion with one piece axel for 150 complete rotor to rotor.

I got the replacement from one of the many XJs we bought for $100. I had a stack of Dana 30s at one time. I had to move and didn't have room to take all of them. :(
