That was either parts or labor, certainly not both. Especially from 4WP.

Your 4-speed has such a deep overdrive ratio that 4.88 is the optimal ratio for your 33" tires. Don't even consider 4.56, your rpms would be too low.

My bad on the minor hijack but here goes: I've got a 98 TJ with 150K miles. I'm about to get a regear on D30/D35 to 4.10 done I'm running 31s on a 5 speed 4.0L. To save cash I'd like to install used gears and carriers with new master installation kits. The TJ is mainly an on road vehicle with the occassional entry level mud trails. Definitely no rock crawling. Are the used gears and carriers OK for this scenario? Thanks in advance for the advice.

Since you have the D30 D35 combo I think the best option would be to grab a set of 4cyl axles which come with a 4.10 ratio and bolt em in. A lot cheaper than regearing. If you had a D44 I wouldn't idk it but it doesn't matter since you have the D35.?

I don't know about a lot cheaper. I've called the local salvage yards and nobody seems to have them. The forums classifieds don't seem to have any. The online places I've looked want about 500 an axle. Hey, I'm all ears for better options.

No. Used gears don't save enough $$$ to overcome them being much harder and more time consuming to set up than new gears are. Many gear installers charge more to install used gears for that reason.

Used carriers are fine.

[QUOTE=Jerry Bransford;2483820]Used carriers are fine. [/QUOTE


Thanks for the help. I decided to spend some money and go for the regear in front and new 4.10 G2 D44 axles which will give me some flexibility. Haven't seen much on here on comparisons between Detroit e locker and the Auburn ECTED. Any thoughts?
