Hello; Just opened my Dana 35 and found a Trac-Lok carrier with 3.07 gears. I have a 01' TJ Wrangler and am upgrading to 4.56 gear set but already bought a open carrier and have mounted the new ring and am ready to install. When I cracked the cover and saw the Trac-Lok I am now concerned I have to stay with a trac-lok carrier. Can I use the open one? Will there be fitting issues? What about performance? Any help will do brother! B.

I purchased a 2002 Jeep Wrangler TJ Dana 35 rear end housing. I have not removed the rear plate yet, my question is does this rear end housing automatically come with the trac-loc locker from the factory? Thank you for your support and Happy Holidays to you and your staff.
