I have a Spartan up front. Can't even tell it's there till I'm in 4 wheel. Makes turning difficult if I use 4 wheel on snowy roads though. As long as you remember it's there and remember it's going to cause some understeer you'll be ok.


Jeeps are like LEGO...build it...play with it...break it...build it again!

'98 TJ/Custom long arm/3 link front/4 link rear with 15" of stretch. 6" in the front and 9" out back.
A Dana 60 front (lincon locker) Sterling 10.5 rear (LS) with cutting brakes on the rear. 5.38 gears. 37" Boggers

If you haven't changed the fluids in the diffs, now is a good time to. While the covers are off, count the gears on the ring and on the pinion. Divide the ring by the pinion and you'll have it. That's your most accurate way. Other way is there will be a metal tag held on by a cover bolt that will give you the info. Provided noone has removed it or changed the gearing. It Is also possible to jack up one end and turn the drive shaft by hand and and count the tire revolutions.
I would prefer the first one and do a visual inspection and get some new fluids in there.

or you could use the 41-11 or similar number stamped into the side of the ring gear to tell you what it is.
