Use the Grim Jeeper gear and axle calculator to help decide what will work for you.

http://www.grimmjeeper.com/gears.html

You plug in your numbers and it will calculate your RPM at a given speed in a certain gear.

That’s sorta funny. I’ve got 4.10 D35 and D30 on Craigslist right now for $300 for the pair and everyone is trying to talk me down. Just last night I told someone I’d do $275 and he texted back at like 3AM and said he’d “have to pass” whatever that meant. Good luck on buying ‘em cheaper is all I can say.

Regearing two axles is like $1200+ minimum, isn’t it?

Your doing it wrong my friend.... Pull your add and relist them for $600 and let them "talk" you down to three.

I paid 250 bucks for a nice clean set that had newish brakes.

I replaced all our axles to the older non c-clip.

If I break an axle, don't need the hassle of rigging up a log sled to drag my jeep home.

I HATE c-clip axles.
Even when I finally go to an 8.8, will need the c-clip removal kit.

c-clips are for Miata's not jeeps.

The parts are $650. I can do the regear myself, i have a shop with seven mechanics. Rather have the new internals then spend $400 on 25 year old axles

I'd be looking to scrap the axles you have and find an older set of non c-clip at the very least.
The older axles are semi-floating and are bolted in and somewhat held in by the axle bearing.
What that means is if you break an axle, chances are you'll make it off the trail with all 4 wheels still under your jeep.
With the c-clip axle, if it breaks, the axle WILL walk right the hell out from under you.

My axles are from an 87'

Well, I can tell you from experience if you do the 4.56/33's you will essentially have a 3 sp. You will shift 1st, 3rd, 5th. But it really helps in low range!

However, everyone 'says' they will only go 33's. If you gear to 4.56 you can still run 35's at just a tad under stock ratio.
Of course the down side to that is... I would never run 35's on a turdy 5!!

Don't do it. C clip eliminators in an 8.8 aren't really meant for the shear forces of abusive rock crawling that might actually break one of these axles. If you get the disc brake version of the 8.8, the disc brake rotors keep the wheels on if you snap one anyway. That or just get a ford 9"...

Should've started off with that information, that's a whole different situation.

Hopefully what he meant was he was going to swap to one of the copy-cat Super 88 kits.

If that's the case he has nothing to worry about.
