Yes.

If you are going to the trouble of upgrading rear axle - the presumption is you are running bigger tires too.

Get a 4.10 geared 8.8 and find a factory front YJ axle from a 4 cyl geared 4.11. That will be decent gearing for anything from 32-35 inch tires. With 33's being about ideal.

as far as tires, I should stick with 31s, My YJ is a renegade with all the plastic trim and I don't want to damage it if I can keep from it, so it is pretty much a mall crawler. I am happy with the 3.07s and really don't have any need for lower gears or bigger tires.

Why are you putting in an 8.8?
