Wanting some info on gears and axles

Can someone point me in the direction of some reading material that covers gears (ring and pinion) and axle shafts and all that good stuff. I'm trying to expand my knowledge on this stuff. I've got a buddy who is wanting to maybe build up a D30 front axle. Thanks!!

You can always start with something like this...

I prefer visual... This was the best one I found. Sorry if you think it's lame. If you watch it explains everything really well and gives a visual demonstration of the actual gearing after the motorcycle antics

RCV axles. I have these in my Dana 30 along with 4:10 gears and Detroit Trutrac Lockers. I have about 1000 miles on them and I am 100% satisfied.

Ultimate Dana 30 CV Axle Set for Jeep Wrangler YJ ('86-'96) & Wrangler TJ & LJ ('97 to '06)

Also for gears and axle info I contacted Randy's Ring and pinion. Great company. They know there stuff. Randy's Ring & Pinion

Good Luck.

^^^ That was awesome, thanks for posting. After watching that I think I could actually replace my own Synchro's, which are worn and cause slight grinding between first and second. The shop wants around $1K to do a rebuild, but If I can get the transmission out i'd bet I could do the work.

I'm sure there are instructions for rebuilding a transmission somewhere on this forum, Jeepforum, youtube, or all three !

The information is out there. It's all about finding it. And finding the parts, of course. I'd bet MOST of that rebuild price is labor.
