If you're thinking about 4.10 gears for your '08 JKU--waste of money-

If you have a 6-spd, then you can always drive in 4th gear, if you have an auto, 4.10 gears are worthless even for 32" tires--

You should think of 4.88 of 5.13s for your power/response comfort, not to mention better gas mileage-

We got a bone stock 08 sahara 4 dr stick. Not sure what the axle ratio is but it needsa tow receiver installed. With all these people talking about swapping gears i figured i might find some 4.10 gears cheap. Regeared the tj i had in the driveway should be the same for another jeep product right? Ya i understend that they changed the axles alittle so older stuff won't fit um. Mopar forbid different generations of jeep have interchangable parts.
02 tj sold, 90 yj, 08 jku, 03 vf750.
When in doubt dump the mag.
