project IM A BROKE ASS

After selling my old jeep years ago, i bought a 1994 4.0 wrangler in october. since me and the wife are expecting a 3rd child soon things are tight money wise. The jeep had a set of 31 bfg ats on it when i got it and a 1 inch body lift.
After replacing the plugs,wires, harmonic balancer, servicing diffs, trans, and transfer case i decided i wanted it bigger and badder.

I found a guy with a 4 inch procomp lift and a set of 30/35 axles for a good deal. i went and got them an took them home. the axles looke dgood. the front was perfect and the rear fluid was dirty but appeared fine...

i went and bought parts and started taking old rear out and the suspension. after i cleaned up the axle i realized the spider rears were shot and frozen

my amazing wife told me to go ahead and go the 8.8 i wanted so off i went. $340 later ive got a 4.10 geared complete 8.8. the ebrakes are shot on it bit other than that it is in great shape. since i needed my jeep i disconnected the ebrake cables and went to getting it under. ill fix those later.

the 8.8 went in great and had zero issues. so now i have my 8.8, and my stock 30 front. i pulled my front driveshaft and am going to start on the new 4.10 geared on this week... but i can at least drive my jeep! im gonna up load some pics as soon as i get them off my phone.

I dont see why you couldn't drive the jeep as long as the driveshaft was pulled. Even with the driveshaft in, as long as you did not engage 4x4, you should be ok.
