Im about to pull the trigger

on some parts.... Just wanted to check here first and make sure I wasnt making a mistake or over looking anything.

Buying gears from 4ws.com:
3.73 and up carrier
Front 5.13 gears
5.13 Rear non JK D44 gears
D30 Master Install kit
Dana 44 Master Install kit
PP Tie Rod
2 Fox-980-24-641 Front shocks From PP (I have a 4" RC Lift)

That should be it. Ill be getting tires next but thats for later on. Let me know if Im missing anything for the gear install or if any of these parts dont fit my Jeep. As far as I know they should all be perfect.

Update: Talked to 4ws.com vendor here and he advised me that if I buy the gears/overhaul kits as a package then I save about 150$ and its still free shipping! Yay for vendors! Ya'll are awesome!

Just to be clear, these kits are Yukon gears, Yukon overhaul kits and Timken bearings. Thats exactly what my installer wanted so it works out perfect.

PM'd. Dont think its really worth it to buy a used carrier seeing that its only 57 shipped from 4ws and that way it comes in at the exact same time as the gears and is warrantied/guaranteed.

Those fox you're referring to, are you talking about a stabilizer or just the front pair of shocks? You're good on everything else.

That would be the front pair of shocks. I broke one of my front RC shocks when I broke my D30 in half. It bent the piston. Actually they held up pretty good considering the way my axle was moving around but either way, the passenger side wont compress like it should so I need new shocks in the front. Might as well upgrade right.

Do it to it. Kevin will take good care of you and his gear pricing is hard to beat.

Those are the same Fox shocks that I run on the front of mine....you're good!

Makes sense now. Just wanted to make sure you weren't forgetting the rear.

If you broke the D30 in half, time for some gussets and sleeves if you're sticking with that axle.... Oh, and you aren't allowed to mention carnage without mentioning the story behind the carnage.

Lol, no. Im not getting new rear shocks till later on down the road when I upgrade my whole suspension. Im thinking about a LA kit in the future and Im changing up to 37's.

I already sleeved the axle, thats how I fixed it after I broke it in half and I have the gussets for the C's. Just havent welded em in yet.

The whole story with pics is in my build here: 2010jkx build break repeat

Marcus says I should get some inner axle seals, I thought the kits came with that but I guess not.

Anybody else see anything I might be missing?

Ive been running it after I fixed the D30 for around 10k miles with no issues so I'm hoping they're fine. If not, my installer will let me know and will replace em.

I already have an Aussie in the front and Im not putting an auto in the rear. selectables put me way over budget and I still have to get tires within the next year. NTM, I can do lockers myself. But not gears.

Have ya'll done the Freeze out yet man?

I should have a good time at the Freeze out. I finaly got the Jeep running right. I picked it up last night and everything works now. I hope to have my River Raider skids on by then. Sucks you can't make it. That event is always a good time.

UPDATE: Just ordered the Synergy Tie Rod, Fox IPF Shocks (Fox-980-24-641), and Daystar Hood Wranglers from Marcus at River City Offroad. As usual he gave me a great price and always has outstanding customer service! Thanks Marcus!


Now Im just waiting to see if my installer can beat 4ws.com's price on the gears and install kits. I doubt he can but I figured I'd give him the chance too.

Also buying the carrier from oz97tj since he had one NIB laying around. Thanks man, paypal is on the way.
