Like mentioned before try car-part.com for an 8.8 in your area. You can get one in 3.08 to match your front or throw a 3.73 or 4.10 version in there and disconnect (or don't use) your 4 wheel drive until you can get the front swapped. If you go w/ 4.10's and have the right tires you'll probably only need 4wd to show off

Would 3.73 be any good or not much better all the wrecking yards I call around here have the 3.73 in abundance. But I dang sure want to do it right so if no then tell me no.

It never hurts as long as its two wheel drive. You'll have to change the front ring and pinion to match eventually but a two wheel drive on the road is better than any four wheel drive on jackstands!

Probably not going to see much difference between the 3.73 and 4.10 unless your doing a lot of climbing but here's your problem which is what i'm going thru now....
The 8.8 3.73 are more abundant here as well but when it comes time to swap out the front, the d30 with 4.10's are easier to come by than the ones with 3.73. So if your luck is like mine either way you go will wind up being like a kick in the juevos

if you do decide on the 3.73 the yj used this ratio in the 94-95 4cyl automatics. they can be found on car-part.

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

So what would be the point in replacing the hole front end if I can just change the gears?

Cuz you can buy the whole front end for the same cost as the gears. And its way easier to do that, than it is to setup the gears properly. That's why everybody was hinting to get a ford 8.8 rear with the gears you want, and a YJ front end to match. And if you pay somebody else to do the work, it'll cost at least 2x as much.

^^. Yup cost. It's cheaper believe it or not to swap the whole front end.
