I got (when I bought my used Wrangler) an 8.8 Ford Explorer rear end with a 4:10 gear in it.I assumed that since he bought it the front axle assy was a 4":10 as well.Wrong its a 3:07.I dont go off road that much will it hurt it to run this combo in snow/mud on occaision til I save the money to get the front changed.I ill be driving in 2wd 95% of the time.Thanks

Correct. The gear ratios need to be the same, otherwise it will tear the the tcase apart.
