Ring and Pinion set - who to choose?

I'm looking to upgrade from 3:07's to 4:10's. The problem is, I have no clue about ring/pinion manufacturers. I'm tempted to go with Crown as they make the OEM replacement, but I just don't know.

Insight from those who've done it on brands, options, quality?



Thanks.

since you haven't done any upgrade to the rear axle yet and you want to go to a factory available ratio, why not just swap your complete existing axles out for a set of factory 4:10's from a 4cyl equipped YJ

While I can appreciate the sentiment, I know my axles are good and I've got a few buddies who know how to do gears - properly. I see no value in replacing good axles with unknown axles from a bone yard when I can get ring/pinion sets for the same money or less than complete axles.

I can understand your concern, but can't really recommend spending much money on the D35...by the time you buy the gears, bearings, and seals then whatever the cost of the install/set up, it would probably cost about the same to freshen up a JY acquired 4:10 equipped Explorer 8.8 with disc brakes and you would end up with a much stronger axle in the end
