Just got my delivery of a new set of Ring and Pinions, Jeep got D30 front and D44 back

So double chk what I've received, the boxes are correctly labelled as YG D30S-456 TJ and YG D44-456 - as you can see these are Yukon's 456 gears, now looking at the numbers stamped on the ring and pinion, my front one lined up, but the back one got a different number,

The ring got: "F5 18679 304 327"
The pinion got: 31491

Anyone recognised this??

Don't worry about it. Companies like Yukon use various sources of R&P gears so the numbers on the gears can vary.

I manage to find the ref numbers on the net

So confident this will work then??

At least, the ring have 50 teeth whereas the pinion got 11 teeth, so it means its 4.54545454 ... Close enough

That would round up to 4.55 which is normal. All TJs, with the exception of Rubicons which have the same D44 axle front and rear, have a .01 ratio difference between the front and rear... like 3.73/3.74, 4.10/4.11, 4.55/456 etc. This is because the ring gear diameters are different for the front Dana 30, and rear Dana 35, or Dana 44 axles are different.
