ghogklr Thanks tdad,
Looking through the catalog I kinda figured I would have too. Will the carriers out of older XJ's work? Tons of them in the junkyards around here.

Yes, you will have to change the carriers too.
Cheapest route is to find someone with a 4-banger that regeared - the 4 cyl's come with 4.10's.
I found a set of gears/carriers/etc with 7000 miles on them at a swap meet for $75. Cost me $450 to have them installed.
It was definitely worth it. No more clutch slipping at stoplights and offroad it makes a big difference. FYI - I'm also running 31's and went from 3.07's.
