regear or new axles?

Well I know what its like to have a 2.5 4cyl now. I have a 4.0, but recently put 32's on. I have 3.55 gears, and the power is still acceptable, but I really miss the power I used to have. I didnt realize that the labor of getting regeared was so high. Its kinda silly if you think about it, getting regeard costs as much as my lift and new wheels combined. I wish I knew something about axles so I could do it myself. Anyway, I was thinking maybe it would be best to find some used 4 cyl yj axles (which all have 4.10's) and install them, and could possibly make a few bucks back on my old ones. What do yall think? THX

You right! but when you regear it is a good time to add that locker you always wanted. Just a thought!

I think you should start keeping an eye out for some used axles.

If you're not in a rush and depending on your longer-range goals, I think there are some pretty decent deals out there...folks higher up on the food chain are always upgrading and yards get new stuff.

I recently picked up a complete 8.8 from a 2000 Explorer with 4.10 gears for $550 at one junkyard and found an d30 from a '95 4 cyl. with 4.10 gears and the bigger ujoints for $450 at another yard. That shop also threw in the drag link and tierod so now I have spares.

I've been told I should be able to get anywhere from $250-400 for my d35 which should offset most if not all of my labor charges.

Good luck.
