Unless another option is found for less $.

I'd play with the math on price and weights (pros/cons) of getting 4.10 axles vs just regearing
4.11 for 3 speed auto
4.56 for 4 speed auto/5speed manual(?)
Most gearing at shops will run you ~1-1.5K after parts and labor. If you can find axles for about that cost and do the labor yourself I say go for it!

|maintenancerob76||I have 4 wheel disc brakes and I'm running 33 12.50's now. The reason I'm wanting to do this is because I want to regear and install lockers but I want to compare the cost versus buying lockers and R&P. I currently have 3.73 gears but I'd like 4.10's. If I can swap the front and rear diff and pinion for less that would be great.|

|MikalCarbine||Ultimately what size tires do you plan on running? All that work on the D44 front may be in vain if you just plan on running 31s/33s|

|Wench||I'm not sure but I think you;ll need new brake line hoses to the rear...rubicons are all four disc brakes...i believe the LJs had drums on their rears...dont quote me..|

|maintenancerob76||After reading another post it seems my money would be better spent on lockers and new r&p.|

|maintenancerob76||What about pulling the rear Rubi diff and pinion? What would I need to hook up the lockers? Air or elec? A coworker has the same model as me but it's a Rubi and I looked under his rig and saw wires coming out of his front diff.|

|flint||you only need the front as your LJ all ready has a rear D44. Discs to discs on the front and you should be good to go. You will need to regear one of the axles as the rubi has 4.10's|

salvage Rubicon axles?
I was wondering what I'd need to take from a donor Rubicon to swap my stock axles(05 LJ unlimited) for Rubicon axles. Also, what would a fair price be for the used parts?
