As for gears I am running a set out of a 03 rubicon. It is a thick cut gear and fits on the stock carrier, but you have to drill the hole out of the carrier to 7/16th and get some new bolts. I got mine from my local jeep dealership. my install kit is from that same year, but like i said earlier the inner pinion bearing and race are smaller then the regular 44. So the shims you would use to raise the pinion are to big so you might need to get so smaller shims. I got lucky and was able to use the same set that was on it from stock. The rest oif the bearings are all the same though
