Good to know!
I'm going to miss the squat stance but at least I know it's not all lost!

Hows the winter/early spring wheeling in your neck of the woods?

Cheers

New rubber is WAY overdue!

On a serious note, the new cage will look good. Go with it.

Also if your going 40s I'd skip the 44 and get the d60 axle. In pretty sure the prices aren't much different

When you go to 4Ds and new axle, are there any plans to stretch it?

I might stretch the front but I refuse to comp cut the rear so that's the rear is going to stay where it's at! It may never happen but I have dreams of linking the front end......

Wow!
I didn't realize how "affordable" (all things being relative!) the G2 axles were!

I mean for under 3k each you can get a complete axle with chromos, gears, and a locker. I'm not sure how much you could really save building them yourself! I may have to consider getting a matching set of 44s. Then I could get 5.38s front and rear haha!

Thinking out loud here. Using the 8.8 for reference...
Axle- $300
New bearings, seals, cleaning up the rotors, etc- $200
Gears (installed)- $850
Locker- $800
Chromos- $600
8.8 instal kit- $150
Diff cover- $100
My time- priceless

So right there, with just numbers pulled from the top of my head, we are sitting at $3000!

The reason I'm going through that, is I've been looking for a 44 to put in the front so I can gear past 4.88. But holy cow, by the time I get my axles where I want them to be, the G2 could have been bought and plopped in! I suppose the benefit of doing a JY axle swap is that you don't have to buy it all at once, just piece by piece, and getting the axle under the Jeep is relatively cheap, but in the end it costs just as much.

Of course there are ways to save money, but still....my own little gears are now 'a turning...

Cheers

What's the story? Don't like the looks, want to keep it street legal, or what? Whatever it is, I'm with you. No comp cut for me.

I can't think of a better time then when swapping in a new axle. In fact, you should go to coil overs that come through the hood.

Yeah thats what I was thinking then same thing, I am going to 5.13s which I hope is noticeable......the 8.8 goes from 5.13 to 5.8ish nothing inbetween, the closes 44 gears is 5.71 which was a whole .10 diff from what the rears would beś

Is .10 too big a difference?

ECGS has 8.8 5.71 gears...
http://eastcoastgearsupply.com/i-117...nion-5-71.html

So I think you have it backwards. The 44 seems to go from 5.38 to 5.89 from what I can find...So you're right that the only match will be 5.13.

Matching 44s in 5.38 is starting to sound pretty sweet to my ears. It'll work (maybe a little low for 35s) but if/when 37s happen for me, or just a ton of weight (bead locks, etc) I'll have that little bit of wiggle room...

Cheers
