What brand gears and size? Do you have a 4 or 6 squrriels?
I have a 4.3L Chevy Vortec motor and 4L60E auto tranny with a hybrid Chevy S10/Jeep NP231 transfer case. Tom Woods CV rear drive shaft. 4.56 gears.
So far I purchased:
Ford 8.8 rear with Solid rear cover, brakes, ebrake cables - Craigslist $300
8.8 install kit (spring perches, shock mounts, u-bolts, etc.
freeze plug to eliminate ABS sensor
8.8 disc pads
8.8 ebrake shoes
8.8 ebrake hardware kit - East Coast Gear $210
(w/10% Pirate discount)
4.56 ring and pinion set
Master install kit
outer axle bearings/seals - Engine Rebuilders Whse $219
ARB locker for 8.8 - Parts Mike $878
Misc. Brake lines/hardware - local Advance Auto $30
Joy of doing it yourself - priceless
BTW, I briefly considered letting East Coast Gear do all the work and ship me a complete bolt in axle but it would have cost about $2500 delivered. So far I am still about $900 ahead.
