    So the question would be, would it fit and work in our KJs? They're technically Dana 30, right?

    Clearly it is a Dana 30a , not a 30, not even close and a lot of those places will sell you gears etc for a 30 and then guess what, they will not work

    Many have ran into the same thing over the years

    Granted, and I've not taken mine apart (yet), but from everything I read, the only difference is the longer pinion (and the aluminum housing). And in my experience at least, doesn't necessarily mean the gears won't work. Now I've got some more research to do. Thanks for the input.

    Why would you laugh at people doing research and learning? You don't have to be a rude. It isn't like I've read every post on the forum, so excuse me for trying to figure something out.

    I also saw someone definitively say the KJ didn't have a removable front diff cover, and I know that isn't true, so I prefer evidence.

    Tom, I saw in two other posts you recommended the 4.10 ring and pinion from Crown specifically for a Dana 30 and the locker for a Dana 30 to people that had the OEM D30A, so I'm wondering now why you insist there is such a significant difference? If you suggested using the pinion for a 30, why would this not work? And I'm not being snarky, I want to understand why the two statements seem contradictory.

    LOL no only Dana has the ring and pinion for a 30a
    Crown DID SELL the Dana 30a ring and pinion at one time, not sure if they do know or not

    It does have BUT you have to remove the front diff to remove the cover, so yes a lot of people thinks they can not
