4.10s with an I6 5 speed and 33s is AMAZING! This is coming from a guy who lugged his jeep around with a 4 cyl. 5 speed 4.10s and 33s. Plenty of power and good Interstate rpms

Check a junkyard maybe. 4 cylinder axles came with 4.10 gearing from the factory. It'd probably cost u less to buy axles and swap them in than to pay to get your current axles regeared.

Can anyone vouch for that?? And no need to worry about installation cost...a guy I work with in the shop says he'll do it for me for no charge....as long as he has a warm garage to work in lol

I don't know how much of a difference there is between gear sets. Mine are G2, haven't had an issue. Just remember, u want gears for front and rear axles...plus it's a good idea to get master install kits for each axle.

You believe? Look at the tag on the diff to be certain. also need to know exactly what diff it is.

4.0L and 5 speed manual tranny 4.10 is OK. 4.56 is preferred.

Yes you will need master install kits that has everything including bearings.

$300/axle is fair price for labor. Some guys want you to buy the parts from them others don't care.

Gerald at Savvy can hook you up with gears and kits from Superior Axle. High quality stuff and his Superior Axle prices are tuff to beat.

What have you decided to go with for a lift set up?
