I have a1978 cj5 with a 304, and I'm running 33" tires with no plans of going bigger. I'm in the middle of doing the yj spring conversion and i bought axles out of 2 different cj7's. The rear is a dana 44 the last numbers on the gear are 43-14, I'm assuming that means its 3.30 gears, the front is a model 30 with gears marked 43-13, so that's 3.07 gears right? Can i run these together or do i need to regear one of them? If so which one should i regear to match the other one? Thanks
Yes, they need to match. I personally would want at least 3.73 but given the choice I'd match the front to the rear and run the 3.31's.
