Default dana 30/35

I want to regear my jeep I am currently running 3.07 gears I dont plan on going bigger than 35's ever (well not with these) and id like to lock the front I dont remember where I saw but i believe i need new carriers is this correct? also what ratio do some of you guru's reccommend its a 4.0 auto 1:1 3rd gear and np231 im thinking 3:73 ratio Is this bad, good, or a waste of money?

What I am really asking is what all do I need to limited slip rear and lock the front upgrade to 3:73's?

Dana 30 3.54 and down; 3.73 and up
Dana 35 3.31 and down; 3.55 and up

The limited slip would be a full carrier anyway, so you just need the r&p, install kit, and limited slip for the d35.

For the d30 you'd need r&p, carrier, install kit, and aussie/ez-locker/lock rite.

For 35s and the auto I'd prefer 4.10s. 3.73 would be ok, at least better for high speed highway driving and maybe a little better on the pocket book for gas.

Gina, there are a ton of 30/35 gears out there... Most guys don't bother selling them when they upgrade to heavy duty axles.

With 35's and a 5 speed I'd go with 4.56 gears.

yeah but it says he is running an AUTO... so 4.10s and yes you will need to change your carriers.
