depends on the area you are in. best advice i can give you on price is get quotes from the shops around you, and compare them all.

dont just go with the cheapest shop just because its cheap. your gears are not something you want messed up.

tranny will be fine. t-case will need the new speedo gear. and depending on how much lift you are running, you will want to consider a SYE and new rear driveshaft. may not need to worry about it at first, but it should be done eventually

yes, re gearing is very expensive. but it is also very worth it. 33s on stock gearing with the 2.5 is a bit of a dog to drive, upping to proper gears will make it more drive able, and keep you from luggin the engine and such

schnutzy if you go higher then 4.88, then you need a whole new front axle.
however, with 33 inch tires, there really is no need to go higher then 4.88.
05-15-2010 01:53 AM
sincityjeepman i'm learning so please bare with me!! sorry for all the Q?
05-15-2010 01:52 AM
sincityjeepman so if i chose to go with a 8.8 or a d44 and higher than a 4:88 in the rear then i need a d:44 in the front or the front part of the axel from the explorer?
05-15-2010 01:48 AM
schnutzy the 4.88 is the highest you can go with a d30 as your front axle. anything bigger will not fit. the front and rear gears have to match for everything to work properly. so no matter what axles you have, the gears have to match. so if you put a ford 8.8 or d44 out back, and you have 4.88 gears in the d30 up front, you will need to put 4.88 gear in the rear axle you chose
05-15-2010 01:45 AM
sincityjeepman wait a min you said earlier that 4:88 is the highest you can go in that combo d30/d35 so if i go to a d44 rear dont i have to change the front?
05-15-2010 01:43 AM
schnutzy id run a ford 8.8 cause its a good budget option for the yj, its very tough, and very common. best place to pull one os from a 95 to 2000 ford explore, that way you also get disk brakes and such. i think the factory gears for the ford explore were 3.07, 3.55, and 4.10. thats a big i think there though. either way, with those 33s and 4.10s i wouls sugest a re gear anyways.
05-15-2010 01:39 AM
sincityjeepman please keep in mind i'm going to be off roading alot
05-15-2010 01:38 AM
sincityjeepman ok schnutzy if it was your jeep what would you do? and what is the most commen ford to get that out of and are they durable and what is the factory gear rat in the 8.8.

nope, as long as the gears up front match the gears out back, then you are fine.

yes. however with a yj, i would suggest a ford 8.8. it is going to be a lot easier to find one and a lot cheaper then finding a rear d44 for a yj
05-15-2010 01:29 AM
sincityjeepman i'm open to all sug.

sincityjeepman Can you run a d30 in the front and a d44 in the rear
05-15-2010 01:25 AM
morphious well just my two cents but instead of regearing the dana 35 my not upgrade to the 44 and find one with taller gear ratio.the cost for a re gear is expensive and i dont recommend you doing it by your self.at least not the first time once you see it done and once you have the tools and what not its not to bad. but the pinion depth is a pita to get right
