Default Rubicon D44

Are the gears in a Rubi 44 the same as in a say FSJ 44?

I'm looking to pick up some 4:88s I believe.

Thanks in Advance

Edit: o yeah, I'm searching now as well just thought I'd put this up for the next guy and for myself if I can't find the answer

Rubi 44 never came with 4.88 only 4.10. 4.88 are availabe, but all the "Rubi" gear sets are the "thick" gears, which can be used in the FSJ 44 (non HP) but you'll have to use the 3.73 and down carrier (and probably drill out the carrier bolt holes).

I"m looking at it the other way around. I want to put 4:88s in my Rubi Axles.

He's saying you'll need to use "thick" 4.88 gears. 4.88s from a Waggy 44 (which would be aftermarket) wouldn't work in your Rubicon 44.

that's what I got as well. There is a guy close by with 4.56s out of a FSJ d44 but I see that they won't work.

I wanted 4.88s anyhow but cheap is cheap so good thing they won't fit.
