I think you miss understood me. When I do the axel swap (not for a while) Im going to gear it back to 4.88's so that it matches the front. Haha, it would rip that thing to pieces. I know not to do that. Not really sure where you got that from but Im not goin to be runnin diff. gears.


Without a Jeep for now...

Haha, yea. Cause one axle would try to spin more quickly than the other.

i think this post is super old by now, but if it helps you sleep at night im running a plain jane d35 with a lockrite and 35s. lol. talk about being worried all the time.. makes me sad that i cant really go wheeling... for now. its how i got it, i didn't install the locker or get the tires. i didn't really know about what axles it had until i already got it. but im in the process of doing an 8.8 explorer swap. for 275 i found a explorer 8.8, with disc brakes, 4.10s (im at stock gearing still, which is 4.10s for the 2.5l) and a factory limited slip. and i bought the artec truss kit that you weld on after setting correct pinion angle so it bolts up to a TJ. originally the 8.8 is a leaf sprung axle. now all i need is a super shorty SYE and new or custom rear driveline and bam. bolt it up and go crawl up some rocks or blast through some mud. i went this route instead of a d44 because the 8.8 is arguably stronger and has tons of aftermarket support. plus with the truss i can link it later if i want. but that's just me.

seeing as you posted this awhile ago im curious what you ended up doing?

If you are wanting a Dana 60 plan on bigger tires, it's too big for 35s.

Since it's fun to reply to super old threads...

This may have been brought up somewhere in the thread already, but the OP mentions having a D35 with 4.88 gearing. Is that possible? For some reason, I was thinking 4.56 is as large as a D35 will go without clearance issues. Or is 4.88 the max?
