Well i finally think i have most of the parts and tools to start upgrading the yj. The plan is to change the gearing from 3.54 to 4.10,add aussies front and back.,replace the dana 35 with a 44,slipyoke eliminator,home made posilock,Add another 2" off lift to the existing 4" lift with 6" booms and lowering the spring perches 2".Also going to install a hand throttle,replace the dana 30 wheel joints ,use a cut down front driveline from a xj for the rear of the yj.i need to repaint at least the right front fender or maybe the whole jeep.Ill try to post pics as i go.

Looks like fun :thumbsup:

Are you cutting the xj driveshaft yourself, or having a shop do it?

Newbie question....
Why new carriers? More splines?

Sorry for stepping on your thread, but...
I just bought an Aussie Locker for my D30 and I want to install 4:10's. Right now it has 3.55's. Do I need a new carrier?

yes you do, you can go up to 3.54 only with that carrier ,at least thats what ive been told. . i got mine used for $40 and im using all the bearings and shims from the old carrier. i did buy new seals and have extra shims.get a spare set of carrier bearings and grind the center out so they slip on for easy set up. then just put the other bearings on. this saves a lot of time

Should be able to get all that done in an afternoon.

I could of gotten 4.10 gears on the old 44 but it is a limited slip so i need an open carrier for it also.

I see from your pics you are going with the Napa cable for your home made posi lock. Do yourself a favor when you drill through the vac motor cover to install your cable try to drill as low on the part as you can so the cable is close to the top of the shaft that the shift fork rides on. This will make it easier to move on the shaft. I just did mine and learned that the hard way. Also test operation many times before you lock the cable stops down

The time now is 03:03 AM.
