Ring and Pinion help!!!

I Just picked up a wide track Dana 44 to swap in to the rear of my 1984 Cj8 Scrambler as a replacement for my turd of an AMC 20, The D44 has 3.07 R&P and the Dana 30 I'm keeping up front (For the time being) has a Nasty 2.73 R&P!

I've never swapped gears, I have decided on Yukon Gears 4.11 R&P. so really I need to know what else I need to purchase to do the complete swap!!!

Will I need new spider gears for the D30? A new carrier? Im putting a yukon Grizzly locker in the Rear D44 with the 4.11s I need help with some advice on how to do it and what else to buy!

Any help is appreciated!!

with that many questions about setting up gears( and not even the hardest part). I have a feeling that you should have it done. Buy the time you gather the specialty tools and the knowledge to do it right the first time. It may save you money in the long run. Do it wrong and you will buying much of what you need all over again.

You can do it , you will need to learn how and buy the tools. i really do not think anyone here is going to do a step by step. since there is a wealth of this on line.

I don't need a step by step so much, what with all the threads I've been reading, I just can't seem to find info on required parts/tools
