Default dana 44/60 4:88/5:13 Detroit lockers

Ok so i have some decisons to make. I want to go with 4:88 gear with detroit lockers. I see some gears that are regular and some that say Reverse whats up with that??? I do want to go with lockers, but don't know if there are different lockers that will do, for a little less in price. I don't want to be cheap but i don't want to get raked over the coals for it. I saw some G2 R&P. It looks like each axle will run me about $1000 to do. I know this is alot of info, but i need to know this shit. What other brackets will i need to do a SOA. i have a 95yj/5" lift/35" tires. plz help thanks

Reverse gears are for high pinion diffs.

yep...the reverse cut gears are for hi pinion axles.

As for lockers.....I would get the detroits........Most of the cheaper stuff (lockright, aussie, ect) just replace the spider gears and reuse the stock carrier.......alot of people use them with great success.......my experience with a lockright down right sucked......I now have a detroit.

g2 is just a brand of gears (yukon, precision, motive are some others)

1000 per axle is probly about right for parts (gears, detroit, master install kit).....labor will be more.......and I don't know what size tires you are gonna run but if they are gonna be bigger than your current 35's you might as well figure on chromo shafts and high strength u-joints for the 44.

what other brackets do you need??? well what do you have?

I am by no means a jeep guy......but off the top of my head you for sure are gonna need to move the spring perches, most likely the shock mounts, and some other things.

Do the yj's still have the shackle in the front?? if so I would move it to the rear.

i think there are some company's out there (blue torch fab maybe?) that make some pretty nice and comprehensive kits to put full width sprung over axles in theses rigs........given the amount of questions here and your apparent lack of willingness to search on your own I would probly suggest you buy the kit since all the R+D has already been done and you can just weld it all together.
