Jeep XJ Regear

Instructions for Jeep XJ Regear

I am going to attempt to install my front and rear gears on my Jeep Cherokee XJ. The front is a Dana 30 (D30) axle and the rear is a Chrysler 8.25. I have done the rear before on a Ford Ranger and so I am confident that it should go smoothly but these sort of things rarely do.

Here are some pictures of what I ordered:

Here is the Dana 30 parts and carrier. The carrier was required because the old carrier wont fit a 4.10 gear. It came with all Timken bearings.
NOTE: Apparently DC4WD sent me the wrong kit. Only one bearing had to be changed so DC4WD sent me a non-Timken bearing and it kinda ticked me off. He even told me it was the difference between 8 and 30 bucks.
