Yes, another gearing question

I am look ing into purchasing new gears for my 01 TJ. I am pretty dead set on 4.88's buit I'm not sure what all I need to buy for the installation. I know it is a dumb question, but as much as I know about automotive work, I still know absolutly nothing about gears. Would you recommend a locker I was looking into a super 35. My jeep is just a 4 cy and I don't go to extreme with the offroading just trailriding and a little mud. I just need a full list of everything to buy so I don't look like an idiot..... To late. Thanks for your help guys


My jeep is a manual, so yes it has 4.11's right now, do I need to swap gears in the front as well?

Well the Super 35 would be a good thing. So you would need it. You would need the ring and pinion sets for front and rear and master install kits.
Would you go with the Detroit locker on the Super 35? If you did the ARB air locker you also would need the compressor etc. The Detroit is cheaper and easier.
This setup would be great for 33" tires.
If you are regearing this is the time to do the Super 35.
Also you should find your installer before you buy stuff. Make sure it's somebody who really knows what they are doing and be sure they will let you bring your own parts.
Randy's Ring and Pinion will have everything you need as far as gears and install kits.
The Super 35 - check around for pricing.
Is your TJ a manual or auto? If manual you should have 4.11 gears now.

Like Otis said, check with your installer first. Sometime its cheaper to buy the parts through them than to bring them yourself.
If your expecting to do this yourself... stop. Check around first, from what I've read this isn't a job to do yourself if you don't "still know absolutly nothing about gears."
