AW4 spline count

The AW4 should be available with 21 and 23 spline output shaft.
As i want to connect my DANA300 i need the 23 spline version.
How can i define it.
Can i see it without disamble or is it addicted from the year of manufacture.

Thanks
Alex

I am pretty sure you are a dumb ass

I don't know which year the switch from 21 to 23 spline was but I do know they came with both. I beleive the switch was like 95-97ish. I want to say 96 but can't be sure.

really is that why a freind with a 90 has 21 spline as well as another freind with a 91.

It could have been sometime in 91 when they went to the HO 4.0 or it could have been as I previously thought in 96 when they uped the power again.

mid 91 changed from 21 to 23 best bet is to get a 92 or newer for 23.

I think this is sound advice.

23 spline was sporadically used since late 89.

depends on... really, what they just had laying around.

if you want to get technical, it wasn't a changeover per se, but as Jeep always does... a random sort of change...

they were ALL 23 spline after 91. the first ones showed up in 89

not quite...

242's could be 21 or 23 spline, same with 231s from 89-91

it truly was a random thing.

I have SEEN different combinations of the like between 89-91.

they were ALL 23 spline from 92 and up.
