Nice vid Beach, I can tell the difference, sounds way better! Bad to the bone couldn't be a better phrase.

And Beach, Here is a good write up i found that explains just about everything pertaining to gear ratio and what you'll need to know and buy to regear. http://www.pirate4x4.com/articles/te...sta/Gear_Setup
And I was thinking of gearing to 4.11 with my 36" tires. I was also looking at the Detroit TrueTrac Locker. Here is a link:http://www.summitracing.com/parts/DTL-913A590/?rtype=10

But I came across a Stam on my Rear Diff when cleaning. It states Up top a ID number: 5358481. And beneath that number is a ratio set up (I think) which says: 45-11 4.09. Does this mean It's been regeared already with a ratio of 4.09? Based on Beachs link to ifsja that tag i posted a pic of is the gear ratio. Also the drain plug on the rear diff has an aftermarket brand name on it. Can't remember what brand it was off the top of my head.
I found 4:09 ratio ring and pinion for a D44 here

http://www.fsjjeepparts.com/ringpinion.html

So that 4:09 must be what you have in there. So that's good for you.

I just got the truck running! But I gotta rebuild the whole top end. Anybody have any good links on cheap top end kits? gaskets, rockers, valves, ect. all the good stuff? Cheapest I found was a Comp Cam kit for 400 bucks. Came with everything except gaskets, valves and rockers.

I'd check a Summit Racing catalog.
I remember my uncle telling me years ago, "cars don't run on gas, they run on money".
I laughed at the time.

Anybody have any advice on a good Carb and Intake kit? Part numbers and links would be great! Because I dont know if I am internet litterate or not, but I can't seem to find parts some other members talk about.

AMC 360 4bbl carb. I plan on ripping every smog and A/C commenents out if that helps break down a decision.
I also bought a Comp cam kit. RPM range from 1200-5200.

Thanks guys

Yea i've been doing alot of lookin around now and decided to go with a 1405 edel carb. It's manual choke which I want. I don't mind holding the gas down for a bit to get her warmed up. Plus it's choke ready if I ever wanted to go electric. And im goin with the preformer 2131 intake. Possibly some Hooker9402 headers as well.

I got a call back from Flatlander. saying my Comp Cam kit i was ordering is on Backorder and eta is end of march... so thats put on hold.

Hey azatrox, Whats your plan on emmisions? I'm about an inch away from ripping that smog and EGR crap off my engine. Only thing stoping me is not being able to regester do to a failed sniff test. But then again i heard theres ways around emmisions with these older trucks.

Only Maricopa and Pima Co's have to go through emissions.
Have any friends or family that reside outside of these two counties?

Nice onepony. I have d44's. But im actually considering making a custom take. After you welded everthing did you put any kind of coating inside? To stop corrosion?

Just make sure you install a over ride switch in the relay. If the relay fails you won't be stuck overheating.
