I hope this isnt a dumb question. If i have 4.10 gears in my rear, do i have to have the same up front? Assuming i wouldnt use 4wd until i get the front regeared?

If the Jeep is stock, you have the same gears up front as back. If it was regeared properly, you have the same gears both ends. Both ends need to be the same gearing.

You will know right away if the front and rear are different when you put it in 4wd. It will act like one of these.

If you installed the d44 with 4.10 on the rear then you need to go ahead and regear the front as well. They have to match.

If your not using 4wheel drive than it wouldn't matter. If for some reason you do do this I would remove the front driveshaft so there is no way to accidentally put it into 4wheel drive.
I know a lot of things, most of them are only correct in my own head...
Better to be judged by twelve then carried by six. I'm sure this is going to get me in trouble down the line

The reason im asking is im working on getting an 8.8. But it might go a few days with different gears then the front.

Yeah just don't use 4wd or pull the driveshaft and you'll be fine for a few days.

No need to pull the drive shaft unless you cannot resist pulling the lever to see what will happen.
