You are right on the D30 carrier...the D35 breaks at 3:55's up to 4:56's. IMHO, if he is going to go to the cost of regearing, go with the 4:10's. I ran 3:07's w/33's for awhile...couldn't get out of my own way

hmmm...i did not know it was that cheap! in that case maybe it would be a good idea to go with the 4.10's

The area i use it in is moutainous , and i hate having to shift out of 5th every hill , lol.
Good reason to switch out front and rear gears , huh.

mrbigjeep if you don't take it off road much then just go with the 3.73's so that you don't have to get new carriers

1BLKJP I might be mistaken, but I believe 3.54 to 3.73 is the breakover for the D30. So you would be fine on the carriers. I don't know exactly what the carrier change is on the D35, but the 44 is 3.73 and up.

bluvikng The LJ's have 3.73 gears and the D44 in the rear, as well. It would seem that the D30, and D35 starting with the 3.07 gears, do not have a very big carrier, and would most likely have to be changed out, even going to the 3.54 gears. That being said, I would think you would be a head of the game by just going ahead, and getting the 4.10's, it would give you much better performance, and would allow you to go up to 33" tires, when the addiction hits.

mrbigjeep aah...i forgot about the 4 banger...they always get lower gearing than the 6...at least a lot of the time they do...i've heard some people put 5.13's in 4 bangers!

They came in Jeeps with 2.5L also, not just in the 44's. Actually, the only way to get a 44 with 4.10's in it is to buy the Rubicon...

Some Jeeps come factory with 4.10's too, but any gearing deeper than 3.73 will require a different carrier.

You can use 3.73 gears with your existing carriers.

409biscayne I really don't like the 3.07 's , don't pull hard enough . Would i have to change carriers to go to 3.73 ?? How about with rear limited slip ?
Thanks .............................. 409.
09-12-2006 11:32 PM
mrbigjeep shoot you really don't even need new gears with just 31's! especially if you just do moderate wheelin'! i mean it couldn't hurt but you'll be fine without regearing for just 31's
09-12-2006 11:31 PM
Nick If you went with 4.10's you'd have to replace both carriers... just use the 3.54's or buy new 3.73's.
09-12-2006 02:10 PM
Bluesman With the 5 speed go to at least 3.74 on 31's I would go with 4.10's though
You could get away with 3.54's and 31's on an auto if you never went taller on tires.
09-12-2006 12:58 PM
mrbigjeep 3.73's is a stock gear too...go with 4.10's like ^^he said...you'll probably go bigger...and that will give you some great grunt on the trail with 31's and still be fine on the road
09-12-2006 12:14 PM
4Jeepn not big enough difference. If your going to swap gears plan two steps ahead.. so figure 4.10's that way when you realize you want 33's your set.

3.07 to 3.54

Do y'all think there would be much difference switching from 3.07's to 3.54's ?? My buddy wants to sell me his when he swaps to 4.56 . I can't see that theres enough difference to warrant the change . Was 3.54 a factory ratio on TJ ? I think i should hold out for 3.73 . I dont have big tires , but i would like 31's eventually .
Thanks ..................................... 409
