Yes, think that is the smart path.

 

 

Why? 

 

You can get a pair of axles from a '98 geared 3.55 for $300. 

 

If you are not doing big brakes your knuckles will pay for a good D30.......that one you get free. 

 

Rear only costs you $150...............now you regeared for $150. 

 

 

Price getting your axles regeared.............you'll come around to the smart way of thinking. :wink:

TowManche, I wasn't thinking about if you found a matched set, definitely makes a lot of sense!

DO NOT! scrap those knuckles on your existing D30.

 

Sell those on Ebay for "big brake" upgrade.

 

Worth about $150 for the pair. 

 

 

Should look like these-

Why are they worth so much?  I have a set on my jeep.

If you want these.........you need those. Those only came on 87-89 Jeeps and are hard to find now.

Just go to Wilwood.com

 

I have not installed mine yet and I won't before I finish painting my truck. 


I have yet to see another MJ/XJ with a set of Wilwoods.

This is the mindset of virtually every member here. 

 

It will take me years to have what I want but I will have what I want.

I used the wrong emoji, I was looking for the shocked one (it looks really small on my desktop).  I’m not disapproving of your willowwood brakes, they’re awesome, but it’s not something I can afford, I was shocked to see such a large price tag.
