Mixing gear brands

So I am looking into regearing my 2012 jku sahara to 4.10. The problem I am having is tracking down the gears themselves. I have found one for D30 from alloy USA and one from G2 for D44. I would hate to mix and match but I have googled a million times looking for 4.10 and this is the best I could come up with. I assume that because the ratio is the same it shouldn't theoretically be an issue but it is a strange thing to do. Just want some others thoughts on this. And remember I want to do the same brand front and back but I can't find them. This isn't a stupid money saving sceme. Thanks for your thoughts.

Thanks guys. I am a little embarrassed that you all found them so quickly. I was searching for online 4X4 shops that ship to canada so that may have been my downfall. Also I called the local gear shop in my city and I was quoted $3950 for a gear swap to either 4.10 or 4.56. So lets just say its cheaper for me to trade in my sahara for a rubicon. LAME!!!!

One-stop-shop. Tell them what you want and they'll quote and send it to you with free shipping. The ONLY place to shop in Canada for Jeep parts.


Stock ratios tend to be expensive (ie. 4.10's)

Too bad you're in AB, I've got all the tools to do a regear, lol.

Unfortunately, we don't right now. If you had an address in the US we could ship them for free, but right now we can't ship outside the US.

don't forget if you have 3.21 stock you will need a new front carrier as well.

I can not see why it would matter front vs rear I know some manufacturers have a reputation for being noisey but as far as actual function there would be no issue as long as gear ration is the same. I am in the same boat I want 4.10's not 4.56 or 4.88. I have 33" tires which I like and spend a lot of time traveling 75-80mph so 4.10's are max I want to go.

Not only a carrier but also Spider gears. Everyone will sell you the pre JK D30 front carrier (fits perfecly as the outside diam. are all the same and spot on), but the spider gear area inside the carrier is not the same so you will need pre JK internals also.

Just FYI that some shops dont know and leave you high and dry on install day, when you think you have everything.

2800 @ 75 Auto in Overdrive with stock Rubi 31s running 5.13 (shade under 3000 @80) ... not sure what the concern is... 75 is 3700 in 1:1 drive for passing. Very doable. From 4.10 to 4.56 is less than 500 RPM @70mph. Most people speed wander THAT much (if they're in front of me even more it seems) anyway.

I simply deplored the 31's with 4:10, my first impression was gutless under 2000 rpm... LOVE the zip of the 5.13s and 31s!!! I run 35s from late March to early november (trail ready) and 31's in winter (work vehicle). Negligible (<1) difference in hiway mpg... actually improves around town - less throttle to get moving.

Of course 90mph is a no go if downshift is needed to hold it... with either tire! (the 35 putbulls aren't happy over 70 anyway).

Yah I can't believe how uninformed the "4X4" shops are around me. I dont like having minimal info on an install and I am the one explaining to the guy what I need as far as details. Scary. Doesn't matter now, I was quoted at 3 different shops at $4000 so I guess I will be trading my beloved sahara for a rubicon somewhere along the line before I lift and add 35's. Such a crappy way to start a weekend. I can't even explain how disappointed I am.
