Mine is one out of a International Scout. I bought it from a guy that sold it to me without explaining how much he abused it, bent the axle housing and bent the crap out of the axle shaft. The ARB locker and gears seem just fine. So I sourced a axle housing and some axle shafts to rebuild it for my rig. I have no Idea how to set-up gears , but have some friends with experience setting up thier own ARB lockers in thier rigs. The front axle was a dana 30 with a matching locker, but it was in a pre 91' axle with the actuator, so that too needs to bex swapped into my dana 30. The 4.55 gears feel tight in both pumpkins so hoping to get them built for my rig some day.
I just really not sure about the 5 spd. Tranny, 4.55 gears and 33" being good for commuting to and from the trails.
When I put the axles from my sons old Xj in and improved my gearing from 3.07 to 3.55 the improvement was good. Hoping 4.10 makes my rig preform perfect. If so I will have to purchase a set of gears to go in with the lockers.
I couldn't pass the set of axles up at $400 bucks. The guy had them for a Mj project that he decided to sell. And was getting out of off roading.
I followed the work you did on your rig, full on rock crawler! Nice!
