Stayjeepins 91 yj build,

Recently banned from Jeepforum :wave:
I have a lot planned for my yj, and I couldn't go without some sort of guidance.
Alright, I got it in a trade for my xj,
When I got it...
91
4wd
3" body 1.5" shackle
Best top soft top. Small leak when hard rain.
Bikini top.
4 cyl.
new 33 X10.50 km2s on alloys
New plugs, wires, cap,rotor,map sensor,fuel filter, dual batteries. And all fluids changed all the way down to the axles and new Ujoints front and rear

Since I got the yj I removed the flares,
trashed stock springs,
added 2.5" OME 36r springs
Used day star main eye bushings all the way around. Had to knock out the sleeves in the smaller eyes.
ford shocks in the front.
cutting the BL in half tomorrow,
getting an 8.8 this week, already have a list of everything ill need to successfully complete the swap.
After that I'm going to monstaline it desert sand. With the 8.8 in I'm going to do 4.56s and 35s :thumbsup:
Oh and here she is.

difference in area maybe, I trust this guy though. He took it out with all of the brake lines intact and everything. Both shafts turn the same direction so LSD?
Counted the ring and pinion, seems to have 3.73 gears... So 4.56s will come sooner than I thought.

4.88s for 33s? Haha, that'll be something. Everyone said the ring gear was weak in the d30 with 4.88s so I wasn't sure what to do. I want them though. I've read 35s on 4.88s with the 2.5 feels like stock gears (I'm guessing 4.10s) with 31s

Attempting to break the axle down a bit. This retaining bolt is being a pita. Keeps wanting to strip.

Got the 8.8 gutted. Shafts, ring, and spider gears it's all out.
Ordering perches and flange adapter tomorrow, then going to start saving for gears. I guess I'll go 4.56. Everyone down talks 4.88s so much in the d30 I'm just sort of unsure.
I can get 4.56s and a Master install kit for around 220 all together on eBay.
