Gears & Locker - What shall I do?
I want to take the gear, lift & locker plunge.I've
got a date to meet several friends in Colorado for 3 weeks
at the end of July and August. They carried me last year.
I have a '92 YJ, 2.5, 2" bodylift, 31x10.50 GY MTR's,
and would like to go with 4.88 gears, simple 1 1/2
Superlift, and a locker in the rear.
I finally found a good mechanic, but would like some
input from those of you who have changed gears and
have some experience with the various lockers.
The limited slip locker has been recommended
because of the Dana 35 axle. Some lockers seem
to easier to install than others.
In the 4WDrive & Rosser Magazines I see the different
lockers advertized. There is the standard Trac-Lock,
Detroit gearless and E-Z lockers, then the Lock-Right,
& Power-trac, then I saw a Detroit True-trac...
What's your experience? and where to order?
And what installaton kits or parts need to be included?
I have hears it's pretty standard to change bearings
and things when upgrading.
Having to do with gears....
- Is there a real difference going from 410 to 456?
- I want to tow a little camper and the 2.5 needs
some extra power, so the 4.88's idea came up.
- To save a little money, my mechanic will install
what I buy, so where's the best deal for gears
and some of the other parts I will need?
* Plans for a simple 1 1/2 Superlift, clearance is good,
but the old springs are really flat. Already have
some Rancho shocks.
When it comes to some simple power tips for the
2.5, what really makes a difference, yet within
Lastly, are there any problems in ordering parts from
Rosser, 4wDrive, JC Whitney, and others? Some
of the mechanics I have talked to take a
percentage on parts, and the prices really vary.
But is there a real quality problem when ordering
from these magazines?
As you can see, it's been a while, since I was
on the forum last....Hope to get some help.
