Gear Help PLEASE.

Just picked up a 2011 JK unlimited sport, manual trans.
Going to be installing a RK 3.5 mid arm lift, and 35x12.5 tires.

I want to install 4.88 gears. The current gears are 3.21's.
Dana 30 front.
Dana 44 rear.

I don't know what I need to order. Do I need different carriers, spider gears, bearings, etc. Ive been searching to no avail. If I need different carriers where do I get them. Ive been searching for hours and cant find anything, except for ring and pinions.
Any help would be greatly appreciated, part #'s to everything I need would be AWESOME.

If you're keeping it open, you're going to need a high ratio open carrier for the D30.

Other than that, since you're bearings are new, and you can remove them without destroying the bearing cage, all you need to order is 4.88s front/rear w/ install kits.

Time to build the TONS!

i'd order a full install kit for the front. that's a lot hanging on you not nubbing up the bearings when you pull them...

i don't know if they still do it, but 4wd hardware sells G2 gears/full install kits/ with G2 covers for 550 shipped to your door.

that gives you every bearing, every seal, etc. seems like a helluva good deal to me.

i've installed them on jeepnick's jeep and on my wife's jeep. it was super smooth.

31 jeeps in... still have issues
