Yj tcase and axles

I'm doing a dana 60 rear axle and dana 44 front axle both out of a ford. Let's say I'm going to run a 4.10 or 4.56 gear ratio. Do I need to do anything with my np231 tcase or transmission besides new shafts and sye???

You may want to cap-off the vacuum disco stuff coming from the tcase since you won't be using it anymore. You may want to swap in a different speedometer gear to help offset the different ratio & tire size you are going for.

Awesome I have heard about the vacuum capping but the speedometer gear just adjusts so you can see how fast your going or am I way off?

You'll have to purhase a new speedometer gear or just use Kentucky windage based on a GPS reading. As for the vacuum capping, here's a little reading.

Hope you don't mind that I moved your thread, I thought it would get more hits here.
