3.07's to 4.10's

I got a set of 4.10's from one of my buddies brand new as part of payment for my bike. I know the 4.88's are the proper gearing for 35's. I just wonder if it's worth it to get the 4.10's put in or stay with 3.07's for awhile till I can shell out the cash for 4.88's

I'd do it because it will be a lot better than 3.07's.

I went to 4.10 from 3.07 the first time I regeared with intent of staying with 33's and the moved up to 35's and it wasn't bad at all. That was with a 4.0 and 5 speed.

I'd sell them and get a set of 4.88 gears. You'll be happier after it's all done.

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

do it right the first time and get the gears you really want... that is a lot in $$$ spent on an install to piss away in the near future by doing it all over again

You could sell the gears and probably pay for half of a new set

Depends. If you are doing the install yourself, then go for it. All you will loose is the time in setting up gears twice, but you gain experience. If you are going to have to pay to have them set up, then wait and buy the gears you want. Having a shop set up gears ain't cheap, more than the cost of the gears in most cases.

If I was going to sell them what would be a good price to sell at?

D30 and D35 will both accept 4.88s.
D30 carrier break is 3.73

97 TJ Sport - 4.0/HP D30 w ARB/8.8 w LS/4.88s; 35s and flat fenders on 2.5 lift

84 CJ7; frame off restoration in progress.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

I've got 4.10 in my 6cyl 5speed and 35s and it's absolutely tolerable. Acceleration, highway, etc. I didn't have the money to get my axles built with 4.88 (HP30 and Ford 8.8) so I chose 4.10 as it was more readily accessible and cheaper. As has been said, if you're doing it yourself, go for 4.10. If you're paying a shop to do it, don't skip what many would see as an important step. Go with 4.88 if you want that powerband over gas mileage/economy.

my apologies to the OP for not giving him enough credit to do his own install



for the rest of us that didn't feel confident enough to grab a buddy, an afternoon and a case of beer... it wouldn't be worth paying install fees twice

~25% difference correct? Should be a huge upgrade.
