Re: Gearing down and Lockers on a CJ7
I just had 4.10's and a detroit locker swapped in to my 82 cj-7. I don't have any kind of locker in my front end, but I only payed $90 an axle to have the gears setup and the detroit put in the rear. I think I got a pretty good deal on it, especially since the guy was into drag racing for years so I had faith that he knew what he was doing. Definately do some shopping around on the $1000 price, but it all depends on what area your in as to how expensive it will be too.
Another thing.. I wouldn't put 4.56's in that D30. Go with 4.10's and the 4:1 kit or swap out that front axle.
Hope this helps somehow
