Yj regearing questions

I got a 94 yj with a 4 banger and 2.5L, and i want to regear so i can push some 35s on it

1. what regear ratio should be good for a daily driver? i'm not a speed demon so 65-70 mph should be good.

2. is it possible i can do it at home? I've looked online and i could not find a tutorial on how to do this

3. What do i need to do this? any parts i need to buy or hardware?

Thanks guys!

regearing is a big job better left to a shop.

^ he speaks the truth here. While costly, setting up your own gears with the questions you asked will prove more costly when redone. Not for the faint of heart so to say. If one was to want to learn I'd say get a Toyota or similar 3rd members and learn in an easy one. For the application you are shooting for a case spreader, dial indicators, gear paint, setup bearings, bearing pullers, and a few other things that will run the tab up past the cost of the gears and setup from reputable driveline shop. After all this the gears won't carry warranties unless you send all setup specs to manufacturer afterwards.

Be prepared. You need a darn good understanding of what is going on there to complete this successfully. Did my own gears, but even with the tools and a friend to help it wasn't easy.

you already have 4.11's (unless it is not stock gearing).
SO you would need to go up to a 4.88 (the highest you can go with your axles you have now).

You do not need carriers at least.
Just gears and master kits.

This is really something you should pay the 250-1000$ to have done by a Diff guy.

Where r you located?

The proper bearing tooling will cost you half of a regear.
