Sweet.
What is in the axles for gears and differentials?
Be easy on the front axle too, my friend use to break his d30 (mostly u-joints) on a regular basis.

Thanks for the comments guys. The d30 wont be to bad, when it breaks Ill go bigger I put new axles and all new ujoints for the front and rear driveshaft. Gears are 4:10's locked rear, open front. Havent been in th woods yet but Im sure it wont be bad. Ill get more pics once it stops raining.

Did you do the stroker kit by yourself? Who did you use? I have a buddy building up an XJ with a blown motor, and he has been looking at one.

I used Hesco, its basically a 4.5-almost 6, from what Ive read and looked at, it should be producing 269hp @ 4800rpm and 340lbft @ 2500rpm. Thats from ajeepthing and hesco.

6.5" on short arms?

generally unless you mud bigger isn't better imo. My buddy has claytons on his ZJ with a 3.5" lift and 32s. 8" is wayyy too tall on a grand.

i ran 35" swampers on my yj d30 and 8.8 rear with an ox locker and a 380hp built 350 and had no problems...it wasnt until i lowered my ratio and went to 37's that i grenaded my front end...broke the gears. surprised how strong an 8.8 with superior super88 kit was


but nice zj...ive always liked those...btw i thought the 4.0 strokers were like 4.7L?
