I swapped my rear axle a while and now have miss-matched gears between the front and rear. It’s time to change my gears up front to match the rear before the upcoming snow run. I could take it to a shop, but was wondering if anyone in the club has the tools (dial indicator, pinion depth setter, etc to do the swap?

I’d like to replace the rear Detroit locker with and ARB. It would be nice to do it myself but, as I said, I don’t have the tools or know-how.
X2. No tools and no clue. But, I am willing to watch and learn as well.

A friend of mine set his own. TJ D44/D30, and he has all the tools. I’ll see if I can borrow them.
A press is also needed, but that’s alot harder to borrow. My only concern would be the timing. He’s up near Colfax, so not just around the corner, and I’m not heading that way in the near future.
I have another friend, with a friend that just closed his shop and might be doing side jobs. I don’t know him well enough to ask to borrow tools.
i also have some digital calipers, and a foot pound torque wrench. i have a list of stuff that i used when i did mine, maybe it will help you get the parts togther ,besides the stuff already mentioned :
set up bearings
master install kit(some people dont bother when doing the front) just use the old stuff, but might a least need more shims
yellow pattern grease
