Dave blavos This is a very good web site but a factory manual that I got off eBay for 20 bucks is the best tool to have . This site makes or a little clearer but the manual will have the right specs for your app.

burton160w Any tips for us who want to go-get it? When I build my Ford 8.8 I'm probably going to swap in 4.88 gears with 35" tires. I want to do it myself to not only save money, but also definitely for the experience. What instructions did you follow? And did you come into any major problems?

exboomer Good job. I re-geared my axles to 4.56 a couple of months ago. It is not as difficult as everyone makes it out to be.

Dave blavos It took about 3 days not hard work , but a lot of thinking and double checking all that I done . I used g2 gears seem to be made very true and to high standards. I get alot of my stuff at 4 wd hardware . They stand behind what they sell and the people are are jeep nuts like all of us .

BigSahara Nice job. I recently had 4:56's put in my Dana 35 and found out my Superior gears were drilled off center. I had it done by full circle in Pottstown, PA and thank god because I would have flipped. I probably should have bought Yukon.

Changed gears all is well !!!!!!

Thanks to the people who gave me information links on gear change out on my 97 tj . It now has 33 s and 410'gears . The job was very time consuming and I bought dial indicator a press and many other tools, it was worth it for the satisfaction and the education . Not to mention when you do it yourself you care more than anyone to do a good job . Remember that someone put it together !!!!! It can be done. Thanks again for the help
