Jerryspc Thanks for the info, Yeah, Iv'e been reading about the 5.13's, I also hear if you play hard they tend to break. I hear the 4.88 are putting up with playing hard. Trying to way out the Pros and Cons of 5.13's.

Thanks again, well appreciated.

KBR97 I would guess between 1500-2000.

Also you might wanna go up to 5.13 or even 5.38, I've noticed that a lot of JK owners especially unlimiteds with 35s are running those gears.

iamagolfspaz Everything is going to be inexpensive except the labor. Pay for experienced mechanics.

Cost$ to upgrading to 4.88 Gears

Hi everyone.

I am looking to upgrade my JK with 4.88 gears. 2009 Wrangler Unlimited, Auto running 35's Front Dana 30 Rear Dana 44. Just trying to get a ball park on price for a shop to do the work. Also adding inner sleeve to the front, Dana 30 as well and adding a Eaton locker, to the rear
Just trying to see how much I will need to complete the build.

Plus, should i bite the bullet and add the locker to the front, since i have it appart? it's another $850.00

Carry on Wheeling
