thats not something that can be done in a matter of minutes, or hours. shoot maybe even days for your first time.

good luck getting the preload and everything set up correctly

you should have researched a little more before attempting to swap out a carrier and gears, its not as simple as just bolting the new stuff in


judging your abilities by what i have seen in your posts, you can expect to pay a shop to finish this job for you, just throwing that out there now so you arent taken by surprise when it happens

i would never do that. i guess you think im stupid but i work in a shop. i just put a new tranny that i rebuilt in, i have already swapped my front axle for another lp dana 30, i have changed from two different 249 transfercases with one that i rebuilt (new vc), i did an engine swap on my last jeep because i didnt wanna rebuild it. i have put three different lifts on my jeep and am currently in the process of building long arms. oh ya and did i mention i work in a shop? on cars? all day? ha ha just cause i have stupid questions doesnt mean i am stupid, thanks tho!!

dont get offended im just trying to help you not get in over your head

your asking how to install spider gears... since you created a thread asking how to install spider gears then anyone would assume you have never set up the preload/backlash and whatnot in a differential before.

i as well have swapped out both axles on my jeep for better axles, installed my entire 6.5" long arm lift ( including 2 different lifts previous to my current one ) and replaced my transfercase and done many other things, and i will not attempt to tackle differential gearing. I pay a guy locally to set up my gears for me

well i like to learn things first hand, sorry for being kinda an ***, but ya looks like we are one and the same kinda. spider gears dont seem that hard and when you have a spare jeep same year, engine, axles, everything and work at a shop with people that CAN do this then what do you have to lose? i just am wondering so i can do it without asking anyone from my work to help, this place is supposed to help correct? i was asking in case someone has done this before and has input. off topic- what determines the gearing in an axle?? spider gears? stupid question i know but i just need an answer not a smart *** remark

The spider gears themselves can be thrown right in and it takes only a few minutes. However if your talking about swapping a limited slip and carrier I assume then that is a whole different ballgame. Gear setup is not hard but it takes alot of time and patience. Also going down to moab on a fresh setup is not the best thing in the world either.
