Ring n pinion upgrade question

Hey I got an 89 yj with 4.2, and 3.07 geared axles.
I am looking to put 4.10s in them and I was wondering if I had to change the carrier ? Let me know, thanks.

Not on Jeep rear ens. There are other D35's out there in other vehicles out there which is probably what muddied the waters. In Jeeps they're all the same outside mounts.

What brand of gears are you getting?

Like stated above you dont need to change the carrier BUT there are different hub sizes on the carrier. Even if your Yj does not have abs some of the non's have an ABS carrier, there is a 1/16" or less difference between the 2 at the hubs that's it. So if your thinking of a drop in locker like a powertrax check those hubs, I just went through this problem. Save yourself alot of time and money, now I have a spare locker I cant use haha.

Sorry I was confused but I plan on buying a new trac lock, like a Detroit truetrac, since I'm doing that then I don't have to worry about the inside hub on the new case right? I was going to buy that prob since it will already hold 4.10 ring gear

I have a powertrax lock right in the rear and true trac in the front and I hate the truetrac its going soon as I get the time and money, might as well leave it an open diff then run the true trac. If you buy a full case type then no you will remove the carrier and the ring gear will bolt to the trac lock. DO have to say that I am completely pleased with the powertrax does what it needs to do when I need it, altho this is not a DD YJ.

Does not seem to work the way I thought it would, was not to impressed with it when I took it out wheeling. Suppose to have the wheel with the most traction with the power and that is not what I have seen. Honestly with the lock right in the rear its not to bad, the thing ratchets when turning and locks when straight. For normal driving I think that would be fine but if you drive alot in the snow/ice the lsd is def the way to go.

To clear up any confusion here, you DO need to change out the carrier, the split is 3.73 and up, 3.55 and below.

It would actually be cheaper and easier to swap the whole axle if he can find a D35 with 4.10 gears (which actually should be pretty easy, people practically give away D35s). Used gears aren't really a good option for swaps in my personal experience.

The only used gears i would use are spiders/side.. I agree cheaper/easier to swap axles and not just R&P..
