Need either higher geared axles or some one to help re-gear in Bradford Co.

Installing a TON of parts on my 97 including a 4 inch long arm kit but stuck running 3.07 gears. I have been looking for either higher ranged axles or will happily buy someones 4 cyl tj as a parts jeep if the price is right.
Failing that I need a shop or an individual in my area who will at least help out with the gear installation.

I've done a ton of research and managed to score a pair of 4.10 axles from a 4cyl. My issue now is that both axles have open diffs.
Guess my next project is to figure out the best method to give me more traction in the rear without sacrificing too much on road behavior or costing me thousands.

I would assume you are going to install much larger tires if so the axles you obtained are less than adequate in gearing and strength without some serious up grades unless you are just building a Mall crawler so I would recommend more research geared to your planed use [pun intended] if you want any reliability at all.

I'm running 33x12.5 MT Baja Claws. I realize the 35 is by no means ideal but most experts seem to agree the 35 will hold up to 33's and moderate use.
As much as I would like to sink hundreds or even thousands more into building better axles I simply can't afford it right now.

Got the rear axle all ready to go in, (after patching the coil buckets and doing some clean up and painting), just need to do some work on the brake lines.
I figure the 4.10 will keep me out of second gear on hills and the front will be in by next weekend, (I hope).
