I posted a thread the other day about what to get an 8.8 rearend from. Thanks for all the info. I found one up the road from a 98 exploder someone is parting out. I have to pull it for 100 bucks. I thought that was a heck of a deal. I have a 95 yj with 2.5, soa, bl, 8.8 rear, and I want to run 36" tires. Whats the best gears to put in it (456,488)? Its just for driving arond town, riding my two little boys around.

With the 2.5L, you will most likely want the 4.88 gears, especially if you are not planning on driving on the freeway too much. It should give you good performance around town/ on the trails.

i run 4.88s in mine with the 4 banger. you'll want all the gear you can get for 36s, and 4.88 is it until you swap the frontend.
