No evan, the front axle is a HP (high pinion) dana 30, and the rear is a dana 35.

They have 3.73 gears and open carriers.

6.5 long arms you need 35's. 33's will look goofy and you'll have plenty of room for 35's. Don't get a snokel unles you really do go hauling *** through deep mud/water. I hate seeing rigs with snokels that crawl .5 mph through a water crossing.

Ok good glad to hear you will actually use the snorkel.

The only thing you'll have to trim is the bottom corner of the bumper. Which won't be a problem with an ARB bumper.

My friend had a 5" short arm lift with 35x1250's and only rubbed b/c the short arms shortened his wheelbase so much.

There was a 4-linked wj that went to my high school. Kid didn't know a damn thing about what he was driving. It never even saw a curb. Stupid rich people irritate me.

Picked up the rear axle today. Drum-brake d60 with 35 spline chromo shafts and a 35 spline open carrier (lunchbox soon).

The truss will come off since i'm running leafs, it's a clayton's truss if anyone wants it.
