Haha unfortunate part is i probably won't have to on the west coast. But i would if necessary! Have you thought about changing out rear axles while you are back there 4 linking and stretching? would be a great time to do so. If so I recommend an 8.8 all day!

Lol have you ever rebuilt a double cardon joint? Its not as easy as plopping them in and done haha. I pulled a front shaft out of an xj with 140k miles and just got it shortened and bolted it in. It will probably need rebuilding in the next 10,000 miles though due to the angle and abuse.

Oh yeah duh, I forgot you mod the front not the rear. Thanks Kyle, that's something to consider to save a few bucks.

Yeah the rear axle is on my mind also, just another 1500 or so to add to the bill. I may just run my 35 for a other year and just set myself up for an easy bolt in swap, d44 or 8.8 with factory style brackets. I.e., retaining a rear track bar.

Woah dang spending money! haha i have under 400 in my 8.8 from start to finish. But i am still running the factory LSD. Your planning on stretching it and keeping the track bar in there? I wouldn't do that.

Well, just the locker, gears, and install kit are a 1000. Anyways, I dont really know why people hate the rear track bar, I know it's easier in some ways to eliminate it, but then I'd be trussing the d35, and redoing my exhaust, not to mention completely junking my current link set up. Right now I run a stock track bar, and have never been known to be lacking in flex, or any bad behavior out of the rear end. This is just an example of me being hard headed. When I start my stretch it will become more clear why this is a viable option.... I appreciate your input though.

If this is going to be a winter project, I would just constantly scan CL and the local boards for a locked D44 or 8.8 with a 4.88 gearset. More than likely, you can pick one up for significantly less than new parts.

Hey now.... Just because we don't all go to moab, doesn't mean we don't wheel.
