about to regear

After I get off my computer I'm going to go pull the axles out of my jeep and regear from 3.07's to 4.10's. I hope it goes good and any last minute advice would be appreciated.

Just that I hope you know what you are doing. Otherwise it's going to be a long, hard road.

Good Luck,

Joe

Do you know how to properly set up ring and pinion gears? Have you done it before?

I have no experience in actually doing the work so feel free to tell me to shut up , but from what I've read:

1. If you are going to go through the trouble of regearing, why only go to 4.10 instead of something useful like 4.56 or 4.88 (although my guess is that you got the 4.10 probably free or cheap from another stock setup)

2. Regearing is generally pretty difficult if you don't know what you are doing and if you have to ask for advice, maybe you are in over your head.

Good luck though and let us know how it goes

More power to you brother. As long as its not your DD do it yourself. And if its messed up keep doing it til you run out of money or do it right. Take your time, use the proper tools, and do not take short cuts.

If mine wasnt my DD i would be doing it myself.

Good job man. What did your numbers end up being?

Pinion depth?
Backlash?
Pattern look alright?

pinion depth was .030 backlash was .006 and pattern was good, maybe just a tad bit high. Im gonna finish it up today and convert to disc brakes on my rear as well as make a tringulated upper link.
