Finally making progress

The beginning of this week I installed a jks adj front track bar and oro u-turn steering with a new steering stabilizer. Today I just picked up an 8.8 thats supposed to have 4.10s in it but I havnt got to check yet. Not sure if I just want to regear the front to 4.10 or if I should spend the money on 4.56 front and rear. Im running 35s and I drive the jeep on the street quite a bit. Glad to finally get to building the jeep up a little. Ill have to get some pictures in the day light

Pretty sweet setup, I with 4.56s and 35s, your rpms are going to be about 2400 going 70 with a 5 speed.

I've been told 4:88's are the ideal gearing for 35's and 5-speed. Is this not so?

I was also told that, but I have a 6 speed, not sure how much difference that makes.
