So I met this guy who sells Jeep parts (kind of a longer story, but its irrelevant)
I have the stock D30 and 35 with 3.07s currently with 31's. 66k miles on the axles. He has a 30/35 with 3.73's with abt 147k miles, good condition. He'd give them both to me for $400 and give me $100 for my current axles. So basically it'd cost me $300 to upgrade from 3.07s to 3.73s. I'm considering running 33's soonish, but I'm a poor college student and can't afford to upgrade the axles yet. i.e 8.8 or D44. I'm thinking maybe I can do this swap, then wait a few years and swap in 1 tons. Also, the 35 I have now needs new shoes and pinion seal, so doing that on the other axles isn't a factor, since I need to do it anyways.
SO basically my question is, should I make the trade?
Any input is appreciated.
Drive it like you rented it, not like you stole it. Cus if you stole it, you'd be driving 5 mph below the speed limit and using your turn signals.
