Might as well go 4.56 so you don't have to regear twice, I'd also look at locking the rear axle while you're in there. The HP30 is a bolt in swap, XJ's, ZJ's, and TJ's all have the same front suspension. Try to find a 96-99 HP30 because they have the stronger u-joints. Make sure it's at least 93-99 to avoid the vac disco housing.

Are you sure you're stopping there? I thought I was stopping there too.

Yeah, the only upgrade after that might be front LA's down the road. Did any of the HP30's come stock with 4:10s?
