Yukon Gears

I am looking at getting new gears for my 97 TJ. I have a D30 in the front and D35 in the rear. Is Yukon a good brand or am I wasting my money. If you have anything against these please offer an alternative

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

Personally, I use and recommend US-made Spicer gears. That's also the brand that came originally in our axles. I'm not one for using imported gears like Yukon's are.

My Yukon 4.88's held up fine till I broke an Axle shaft then a chunk of the shaft got wedged between teeth on the R&P gears and broke off a few teeth on them Why did I lock a D35

Stick with Dana Spicers. I got a complete kit with front and rear gears with install kits from DC4WD for ~$360.

I run Yukon's F&R in mine. They went to mush back when I still had my turdy five, but the way I wheel, plus the factor that it was a d35, can't say it was the gears.
had some wear on the gears in the 30, too much play, incorrect backlash, so still can't say it was the gears. My current gears are holding up great though in my 8.8, and I pound it regularly.
