Gotcha, I just wanted to make sure you had checked everywhere. I don't have the balls to mess with the differential on my own. I've heard that you should take picture of every step while you're taking it apart. That makes it easier to figure out where that random part you have no clue what it's for goes back in.I didn't think it was cool to name shops that I was disappointed with. I'm not here for that. I think I'm gonna try to do this gear swap and seal change myself. Just contemplating what ratio to go with. I think I'll take a chance and go with 4.88's eventhough my gut tells me not to. my gut tells me to use 4.56's but i figured if the 88's rev to high for me I could always go to a 37in tire. I have 35's now that need replacing so I can drive it with those before buying new ones. I'm just a bit nervous because I got alot of feedback indicating that the rubicon dana 44's are a bit more difficult to work with than most axles because of the type of lockers????? With no reputable shops in the area I dont have much choice now.
