Did I read that correctly? You're running 4.10 gears in the front and 3.55 in the back??

Guys, yes I am running 3.55 in the rear and 4.10 in the front! I just had my front end rebuilt and I put 4.10 gear and eaton LSD but didn't have enough funds to do both at the same time. Right now I'm keeping it in 2wd and my front driveshaft is out. In about a week the rear end will be pulled and also regeared to 4.10 and will have the eaton LSD in it also.
Also thanks a lot to everyone for comments on this build! I'll keep it posted as of the projects.

Well the time has come. The Jeep is in the shop once again with the rear Dana 35 pulled out. After opening up the diff cover, I thought I was going to have a heart attack lol, because each of the gears had quarter inch chunks missing out of them. Hopefully it will be done soon with new 4.10 gears and Eaton LSD I will keep you guys posted!
