I would run those 4.88's Thats as deep as you can go in that d30. I think with the size tire you are going to run and that 4.0, 4.88's are a good choice

So I'm rethinking my whole rear axle scenario... Might as well do an 8.8 swap I think...

As far as I can tell I want an 8.8 out of a 96 or newer exploder for Disc/ABS? Sound right Are there certain years to look out for?

Just make sure the gear rations match. I know some exploders came with 4.10's. I would get disks as well. I pulled mine out of a 97

Another 8.8 question, if anyone is reading this still, my research shows 8.8 is still a c-clip type axle. If I'm going through all this work to remove my D35 why am I replacing it with another C-Clip type axle..?

Also yes I will get pics soon

Larger axle shafts, more aftermarket support, larger axle tubes, bigger R&P, Just all around a stronger axle

I'm also wondering what people do when their battery cables get gnarly and need replacing. It's been a while since I looked at where they go but it looks like they join a larger wiring loom. Not enough slack to cut and crimp on new clamps!

Oh and I picked her up some goodies on the way home the other day...

there's a guy on the net that makes custom battery cables for jeeps. they cost about a hundred bucks if I remember right. I made my own with some 1 gauge cables I had in my garage. here's the link:http://custombatterycables.com/appli...kee_cables.htm

you could always throw a super 88 kit on it before you install it. Gets rid of the c-clip, strong enough to run 37's with ease and adds 1'' to each side of the axle bringing you almost dead on the stock ZJ width.

'95 XJ hp-D30 - I am going to be rebuilding completly and throwing 4.88's in it. I hate to invest too much into it but not sure what to do about traction device and shafts. I want an ox locker but really not wise to drop big bux on the D30 i think. Although my plan is for 35's, no bigger really

'00 8.8 exploder axle complete rebuild with 4.88 gears, the ultimate 88 kit is also gonna happen, just not sure what kind of traction device to go with here the ox seems justified and worthy. The device needs decent street manners if possible, that basically means selectable or LSD... I learned about the Super and Ultimate kits out there, the yukon kit looks like it's the winner unless I hear to stay away.

monte heck of a lead on those cables thanks! I dont have much like that lying around

Also got 1.75" pucks and replacement OEM isolators in the mail so total of abut 6" f lift is planned.
