You've got 33s correct? If so you like the 4:10s?

I have 31s right now. The 4.10s were so that I could jump into 33s and not struggle super bad power wise. So those are coming soon. The 4.10 with 31s though are really snappy. It has a lot more bottom end torque that I lost with the bigger tires. But the gearing does feel a tad short for my liking. That's why I'm excited because 33s should put me back at the just-above-stock feeling I was going for.

34s and 3.55s are so much fun!

I'm glad that the 8.8 worked out mint for you!

Yeah, so am I! Mathematically 4.10 and 33s will have the same ratio as stock 3.55 with 225/70. So, theoretically, it will correct my speedo, odo, and power/milage all back to essentially stock. I just need to get the 30 in so I can have my 4 wheel drive back!

That's mint dude! I may go this route but just regear my 8.25 (I already have 300 into 75 for the axle 230 for the locker)

That's what I was looking into doing, also, but I wanted disc brakes and gears and to get disc parts off of a ZJ and get the gears and install them, I would have been pretty darn close to how much I set up the 8.8 for

Got all of this rounded out a couple of days ago, just haven't had time to get on here. I tried to take a few more pictures than I did with the 8.8.

Ripped the guts out


Got the new axle painted up with this sweet primer.


I did a CAD-delete and "compound" housing in the HP30. (Meaning that I swapped a few bigger, better parts from the lp30)
Here's how that went:
Tore apart the HP30, removed CAD actuator and collar, as well as the carrier.
I got the seal and block off plate kit from Rusty's, destroyed that seal trying to put it in all sketchy, and went to NAPA and got a new seal. CAREFULLY put that one in and reassembled the carrier.
At this point we tore down the LP30 and replaced a shot u-joint on the passenger shaft, then we installed the LP30 hubs and shafts on the HP30.
We then realized that the calipers on the HP were smaller than on the LP, as well as that the knuckles were 2-piece, so we replaced bad ball joints and swapped the knuckles.

Block off plate


New U and Ball joints


Put on new braided brake lines from IRO


Put on new pads and rotors
And after some wrestling with it, she's in.

So lately my front end has been clinking and I narrowed it down to the flex joints on my control arms being loose. I talked to Rough Country and they said to tighten down the threaded washer on the opposite side of the c-clip. And also when I do that, I need to lengthen them to correct the caster.

My only concern in that getting the control arms to line up on either end is a real pain in the ***. Anyone know a trick to line them up while fighting the springs?
