Default ZJ D30 in a TJ

If I remember correctly a ZJ D30 will bolt in right into my TJ correct? Would be out of a 98

Also I know they have cv shafts will everything off my current axle bolt in (aussie locker, chromos, brakes etc)

Bolt on and go brother. Yes you will have to either run the cup with a cv joint or put your yoke on it and use the u joint style. Those cv drive shafts are known to blow out. I recommend not using it.

imo 4.88s will be way to much! Have your driven anything re geared yet?


Find some 4cyl axles!

Ill look this weekend for some 4.11 r&p. I had had a few fr/rear spairs when i ran the d35.

You're taking shortcuts, which will cost you more in the long run. Do it right the first time.

Why 4.56 and not 4.88 when running 35s? I know 4.56 is more of an "in the middle" gearing for 35s but is that why it's best recommended over 4.88s?

4.88's in a dana 30 are prone to breakage because of the limited teeth.

That's why he's going with 3.73s in the first place. The 3.73s are his current gears so he is saving money by just replacing his current front axle, rather than having to regear both. The regear will come eventually, just not with 1/4 ton axles.
