I'll let him answer for 4;10's but I run 3:55's and its not as bad as everyone makes it to be. I'd rather have 4:88's, but I can deal with what I have for now.

They really aren't too bad, but I really want lower I plan on going 4.88 power and mileage are very poor I went from a 16 mpg average and now I'm probably getting 11mpg which is terrible. But I can get it to around 13 if I drive freeway a bunch haha

I'd sure like to have a 44 in the front of mine....

Started on my spring hangers this evening. What a pita it is to cut the old brackets off!

You can see the outer bracket is pulling away. When I lowered jack and let suspension droop both sides bent down and the driverside made some unpleasant pops


Here you can see the crack under the seat


This is the progress thus far. It was tedious cutting the spot welds I used a spot weld cutting bit however it was difficult to get them cut perfect and took some grinding and prying to free the pieces.

Being super lazy with posting as usual...

Took me 4 days to finish my spring hangers kept running into problems with welder and I decided to build some plates to go on the floor to tie the brackets together across the floor. And sandwich them to body for extra strength. And took some time to fix the tears. But got it finished and took it out this weekend! Amazing how much quieter it became after installing the brackets many odd noises disappeared! I am very pleased.

Bolt the hanger to your plates? Or weld the plates to the floor?

Hangers are welded to the chassis rail and the plates are just bolted. I will pull my carpet up and snap a pic. Thanks Hawaii I appreciate that! Just got pulled over by highway patrolman... Time for flares and flaps again

Here's a pic of one of the plates under the seat to give you an idea Weeder. I drilled an additional hole to help the plate sit flat which is where the shiny bolt is. It's now time to prep for jeep safari again.
