    and for the rear




    or this


    Now I have to just order the gears tomorrow, but I'm still in the air on 4.56 or 4.88 LOL

    and then probably next weekend I'll at least get the rear installed.

    That is awesome. I was just looking at these and looking forward to getting them. You gonna do an in depth write up(hint )? I thought the Rockcrusher diff was heavy at 14 lbs.

    Just out of curiosity, how come your splitting up the front and back shifters and not keeping them together? I'd put them right next to each other next to your x-fer case shifter.

    I'm not really sure where or how I'm gonna mount them that's the big question. One way that I was told, is to cut out a little square in the tranny cover and mount it from the underside... I'M NOT SURE THOUGH, BECAUSE i like the industrial look with the whole shifter in view HA HA

    I'll see what I can do for a write up and review on them.. so far from what I've seen of the front... I LOVE IT. BUT lets see on how the cabel routing goes

    From experiance 4.88's hands down. Your running 35" tires so going to 4.56 would bring you back to stock spec's but you have added weight and roll resistance. So to over come that 4.88 gears are the way to go.

    OK well my rear OX and both cables came in yesterday Now I'm just waiting on the 4.88 gears, and then the install will be hapening.. too bad they will not be here by tomorrow (so I can't do it this weekend)
    But it looks like next weekend is when the magic will start to happen.

    Well todat begins the work. I'm gonna be doing the steering shaft and 1"poly body lift today, and then the gears and lockers will be tomorrow and sat.

    I'm off at noon, and the hoby shop will not open till like 3 so I was thinking of just doing the steering shaft at the house, then doing the Bl at the hobby shop.

    I'll try to get as many pics as possible so ya'll can see my trials and tribulations... WHEN has EVERYTHING EVER gone to plan when working on a Jeep??? NEVER for me. so let's see what I've forgotten..
