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.
