Axel question...

so i been trying to find some yj axels with 4.10s that i can swap under mine to get rid of the 3.07s since it would bolt right up and be the cheaper route.
well turns out they are hard to come buy so im askin you guys if any other axels will bolt up to my set up like maybe out of a cherokee or a tj? idk?
does anyone know what i can do or what mods ive had to make to get the axels to work?

any imput and suggestion is awesome!!!!

I just did a search in your area on this website Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market and found a bunch of them.

go for a 8.8 out of a 95 or newer explorer. they will be 4.10 gears. minor work to put this axle in and its STRONG.
find a dana 30 out of any 4 cyl wrangler and it will have 4.10 gears. this set up will be good for anything up to a 35 inch tire

As I recall, the 4.10 gears in an explorer were only stock in the Sport model, the shorter 2 door.

You are correct. I heard something about a 4-door with a factory tow package, but I have never seen one. It took me almost 2 years to find one at the pick and pull with 4.10. Then as soon as I got it home, I decided to go with 4.88.

You will need some welding skills. And it always ends up costing a lot more than just the price of the axle.

That's a hugely variable answer question. Use the old internals or buy new? ...locker? ...which one? ...are the brakes on the used axle good or need replacement? ...gears right ratio? ...bearings good? ...buddy hand you an axle or pay top dollar at a 'they pull it' yard?

Mine was $250 for the axle, $1000 at Randy's (4.88 gears, ARB, master kit), $150 for the JB4x4 steering bracket, $150 or so for rotors and pads, and I did all the labor myself.

The axle cost me 250 and the locker cost 400. Gears and locker setup was about 250. and the gears were 100 and the master install kit was 100ish. SO total it was about $1100. If i were to redo it i would get a spool kit from moser with 35 spline shafts and call it a day. Thats only about $700 with the ford 9inch tube ends because you need those to fit the bigger axles but then u get rid of c clips and c clip eliminators.
