hey guys, im gonna be upgrading to 4.88 gears front and back of my bronco.

ive done a lot of searching (be proud of me guys) and it seems i need a new carrier in the front to fit those gears. im gonna be using aussie lockers front and rear.

my questions are.

Do i need a new carrier in my 8.8?

And which open carrier do i need in the following linkn im having a hard time understanding what they say.

8.8 if I recall will not need any new carrier. However, check with Aussie if your's is a trac loc. The aussie may only be made to go into an open rear. Front, with your gear choice, you want a high pinion front for 3.92 and numerically higher. Again, be careful to most likely choose the item number that is an open carrier. I'm not knowledgeable on the aussies...is that a lunchbox locker, I think it is, and it likely needs a standard/open carrier.

I agree with Juic- I mean Shadofax. 8.8 you can put any on but need an open carrier to do so. the 44 need one for higher gears and open!-Bob
