1993 wrangler with 4.88 gears?

I'm looking to change my gears over to 4.88 instead of the 4.10 that are currently stock. There are a lot of different 4.88 gears when i do searches and I wanna verify which exact ones I need to purchase for my jeep. Thanks.

Front = Dana 30 axle = 4.88 Reverse cut gears due to YJ high pinion axle arrangement

Rear = Dana 35 axle = 4.88 gears.

As long as they're the same ratio, brand name doesn't matter (Precision Gear, Superior Gear, etc.) front to rear, just look for the best deal on each set, IMO.

What axles are you running. If your running a 350 with yout stock axles then dont put the money into them. get something that will hold up and gear that.

Upgrade the axles if your running that 350 like your profile says. If your not running the stock axles you will have to find out which you have under there.

Finishing a 4.0 Cyl.head swap, Just got an AX-15 NP231J combo to replace the busted t-case and craptacular BA10/5. Adding Nutter bypass. Probably more to come before it is back as a DD!

WHOA NELLY!!!

Good call shaggy!

I should have looked at his profile, eh?

By the title & wording of his thread, I just assumed that he was stock!

Ford 8.8 gets my vote.

Ya if that what he has got then I think the best thing would be a 44/8.8 combo. The 350 and 4.88 would snap shafts at a stop light.
