Im not sure what gear ratio you're eyeballing but some could be had with 4.10's.
    I put an 8.8 under my yj. Great rearend. I was able to score one with a limited slip carrier 3.73 ratio with disc brakes for under $200. I bought most of my conversion parts from m.o.r.e., but others sell the stuff also. I didn't even worry about that rearend with 35's.

    If your only going with 33s or 35s the front Dana 30 can be built to stand up to that.

    However, anything from Dynatrac would be a better upgrade. 👍
    2014 JKUR named NORDNDD.

    If you reach out to tdijet on here I believe he has an 8.8 for sale. I believe he has 4.56 and an arb in it but don't quote me on that.

    Build planning questions.

    Another option that would be super easy would be to look for factory Tj rubicon axles. They are certainly cheaper than dynatracs, and they would bolt right on with no modification needed. They can be hard to find, but they will hold up to 35s easy.

    The 8.8 is also a very solid axle. You would not regret that route, and they are a dime a dozen.

    Thanks so much to all.

    Now I have to figure out where to spend the extra coin when needed, and where I can save a little money to get a build off the ground.

    Thank you. I've been told it's not longer a matter of "fault" they will warranty it. The only hiccup is patch vs. replace.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
