    Are you saying that you physically can't do it or you shouldn't? Because you can buy 5.13s for a tj Dana 30. And It would be awesome to put a PR 44 in but it's just not in the cards for this rig.

    Holy s*it. I just saw that. I thought it was only available for the jk. When i purchaced gears for my yj a couple of years ago 4.88 was the lowest i could get. Man i wonder how small that pinion is?

    LOL!! That and make sure to keep your front open. Back when I was running 37's on my TJ, I was doing it with 4.88's in my Dana 30 and it held up well for me but it could suck to drive as it had no power.

    Yup most of the major gear companies are selling them now!

    I would never lock a Dana 30! I just hope I get a couple of good wheeling trips with it before it decides to let go!

    We'll have to give it a test run up on Slick Rock when the snow melts. The Jeep is coming along nicely.

    Oh yeah! I'd be happy if it got me through the rubicon, slick rock and Barrett lake this summer!

    LOL!! I locked mine up with an ARB. Granted, I used it very sparingly.

    Ob_tj's transformation of the green lantern

    Little late here, but I have 5.13 gears on my 37s and I'm very glad I didn't go with 4.88. Plenty of pep in the low end and getting on the highway. Getting 16mpg mixed highway and city driving during the week. Mostly highway though.

    Love the green by the way. Jeep looks great.

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.
