Great to see you back man!

Was just thinking about your resto the other day. Glad to see it's back in proper hands.

Veddy Nice, But who did those gears?
I did the gear setup. Pic was from a test fit added a little paint for the IG post. Definitely not the finished product. This was one of the most aggravating things I have ever done. I must have pulled it in and out over a dozen times before the backlash and pattern was correct. Had to get some help at the end to finish. Glad it’s over not sure I would do it again. Well actually I did it again on the 8.25 but it was easier for some reason.

Yeah, Dana 30's are a pain in the ass. Been there. Everything is shimmed. 8.25 at least has side adjusters and a crush sleeve. Good deal!

I made setup bearings too. But I'm HP. I think just the LP used a crush sleeve. Maybe because they don't use an oil slinger in the shim pack??

Well I traded my daughters XJ I built for her for my wife’s mustang. So it’s now my daily driver again. The upgrades have already begun. New axles front and rear and upgrades to the NP231.
Wow! Welcome back! It will be a treat for us to see that orange beast again. Nice work on those axles and T-case

Thanks It was a project I wanted to do earlier but we had 2 kids in college and a wedding to pay for. So the Cherokee was last on the list.

Stay on 31s. Its cheaper and Im guessing not super necessary for your wheeling to have 35s. Parts are cheaper, tires are cheaper, less wear, etc. Feel better?

Some what but I’m definitely going to at least 33’s. Just wasn’t sure if I should skip that and go to 35’s. I know there would be lots of fender trimming for 35’s.

From having been on 3.5", 4.56's, lockers and 33's for several years and now being on 4.5" and 35's I am not qualified to offer an opinion. :D
