What gears in it now? If you don't know how to regear it might be cheaper to find axles with 4.10's

around $1k for gears and installation, look for a set of 2.5L yj axles to swap, $150-$350

Yes.
If you find an axle set from a 4 banger YJ you will be geared perfect for your motor and they bolt in as they are the same axles.

Also 94 and 95 axles have stronger joints

You'll want to get front and rear axles together.

And putting your real name on the internet is just plain stupid, not like identity theft is prevalent or easy these days...

I think dan's high, comes here asking basic questions a few minutes of research would have answered then has a fit when someone tries to help him.

This guy reminds me of the WF user "sativa", lmao, who else remembers him? he embarrassed himself so bad with his immaturity (much like dan high) he left with his tail between his legs and never came back. Maybe dan should learn from him.

some times I think some of the people on here should not own their old jeeps. Anything this old will need some work or help, if you can't do most of the work yourself it will cost you alot more than it is worth and you will never get your money out of it. It is fine if you want to learn but don't be lazy do alot of seaching, google, read other forums etc. Then when you have your basic knowledge ask your questions. Not trying to piss anyone off just my two cents

I can say one thing, if I need help (Mainly because I'm not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to fixing a Jeep problem) I'll surely ask someone that knows what he is doing like Tiger Blood and if there is anyway I can return the favor by all means tell me, lol.

Keep it up man. You should write a book about Fixing Jeeps.

If there isnt a tag on the rear differental it still should have numbers on the inside, I also agreed with the axle swap, to regear will cost around $250. with gaskets gears and fluids, not to mention it is still a weak link in the drive train.

Dan, also research ford 8.8 swap. A little more money but may be worth it for you.
