Driving with different gears front and rear
Hey guys, today I installed an axle that has 5.13s, and I have an appointment tomorrow to get the rear regeared to 5.13s. Will it be ok to drive to the appt with the drive shaft installed as long as I don't put it in 4wd? Or do I need to remove the driveshaft?
To be honest, I would feel much safer pulling the front shaft.

Really depends on how many people drive your Jeep! You'll be fine running around in 2wd, but be extra careful that you (or anyone else) doesn't go to 4wd!!! Like JT said, pulling the front shaft or removing the shift cable from your transfer case would be extra insurance until your front gears are changed out. Note I drove around with my 4.88's in the front axle assembly (3.73's in the rear) until I did the rear end for about a week or so. However, I was the only one driving the rig around!
