Thanks. So as far as setting the depth, do you have to knock that race in and out a few times during setup?Revolution and others we have used for the JL/JT all still use the same outer pinion bearing with the plastic style cage in their kits. This is only on the rear axle though. We haven’t seen a ton of failures or issues and the rears also set up with a super light 12-19 in. lbs. of preload.
For comparison, D44(left) and D35(right)

Yes we absolutely use set up bearings for the pinion but just the outer on JL/JT’s as pinion depth shimming on them is done under the inner race. On JK’s we have set up bearings for inner and outer as they are shimmed under the inner pinion bearing.
