I have a 3.54 frnotn with disc bakes for 250.00 .Shipping would be around 100.00 .Sometimes when previous owners break things they end up settling for any front or rear that will bolt it .They usually forget to mention to you as you are driving away that the ratios dont match .It seems half the jeeps I buy to part out dont have matched gears .But in regards to a 1.73 it should b e a 2.73 still a worthless gear. Does a 1.73 exist for a dana 30 ??? Hope this helps .

When in doubt, pop the lid and do a tooth count. Divide the number of teeth on the ring by the number on the pinion.

You dont have to count the teeth .The ratio numbers are stamped in the ring gear .Just pop the cover and spin the front til you see the #s .
Dingo I will get back to you tonight about shipping
