Alright, to find out what gears you have: You need to get under the jeep from the rear and look at the rear differential in the center of the rear axle. On the top left side there's a tag and if it's not to badly worn out you should be able to make out a gear ratio 373 or 307

Yeah that was the first thing I planned on doing when BrowningGal brings the jeep up this weekend.

Or BrowningGal, you could check it out and post up what you find. I hope 373, I know that is not great but would prob be a considerable difference in how it pulls when the upgrades are done.

I have 373's and 33's on the same tranny. It's doable and you get used to it. It drives like a boat and is hardly aggressive on the street but I'm keeping it that way till I swap out the d35 and then Ill move way up to 4.88's 5.13's?

4.88 is max on the D30. Unless you plan on swapping that too.

Trying to go hp in the front I want to do both axles at the same time so I can have it all geared the same at the same time.

Will this track bar relocation bracket work with the BDS 2" lift springs?? And do I even need one of these?? Will I need bumpstop extensions or should I wait and see after lift is installed??

I ordered the 2" BDS spring lift on the 28th of November and still have not heard a peep from them. No email stating shipped, tracking numbers or anything. I shot them an email tonight to check status so will see where it stands.

Anyone else delt with OK4wd.com before??? If so how was there service?

Never hear of ok4wd.com but that OME bracket is the one you want
A phone call or angry email usually solves any problems Ive had with bad companies. They might be a drop shipper so you'd have to wait for their supplier to get the product before it will ship to you.

Guess you went ahead and did it!
I had a 91 YJ with 3:07's, I put a FORD 8.8 w 4:11's in the rear and picked up a 95? D-30 with 4:10's up front, it wasn't the best but it did work good. The whole ball of wax was less than re-gearing and I got a bullet proof rear axel. Those tires look good! She'll be wanting 35's soon. Good luck with the build and let us know where you're at.

I have 3.07s on 31s and an automatic. I have no issues at all. It's a jeep. not a sports car. I just got from a 600 mile trip to Toronto and got 17.3 MpG and averaged 65 MpH.
