Hey everyone. A few weeks ago I posted a thread on modding my jeep to accept 35's with little or no rubbing on a 2.5" lift. These ideas included a 1.25" BL, the modernclassicenterprises fenders (or similar), and the trimming and adjustment of the rear wheel well/fender flare. Well last night I placed an order for the BL from Rokmen, so the project is slowly underway.
Now my thinking is focused on the axles/gearing. Jerry previously recommended 4.88 gearing for a manual if I were to run 35's. So this being the case, I have heard needing new carriers for the differentials. Is this true and where can I find a new carrier that will support 4.88 gears on a dana 30? Also, does a dana 44 need a new carrier for these gears? Last question, do you need to change anything else with the differential other than a carrier?
Any input is appreciated!
