what engine? that makes a big differnce when it comes to running 35's on stock gearing and also what stock gear ratio are you looking to know about with the 35's.. JK's are offered with 3.21, 3.73, and the rubicon comes with 4.10's (option for 2012's)

Autos come with 3.73 if I'm not mistaken, the engine is a stock 3.8 with magna flo exhaust.

35" tires will kill the 3.8. You'll wanna regear to 5.13, at least. If your front axle will allow it, 5.38's.

Best I can tell you since you haven't mentioned year or model, and there's no info in your profile.

As far as tires go.. What kind of terrain do you wheel? Is your Jeep your DD? And do you see snow covered roads durring the winter on a fairly consistent basis?

Obviously, based on your location and your avatar pic, snow's not a big consideration for you. It was for me, one of the main reason I went with DuraTracs. Great in snow, mud, rain. Long tread life. One of the lightest AT tires on the market. One weakness is the thinner sidewall, which could cause you problems if you rock crawl.

There are tons of other options: BFG, Hankook, Cooper, Falken all make really good tires. You just gotta figure out what your main uses are gonna be, and find something that works fairly well in the majority of em.

The bellow are some tires that come to my mind that you will find on a DD/WW that have 3ply or stronger sidewalls

MT
GY MTR-K
Hankook Dyanapro MT RT03
Cooper STT
MT MTZ
Kuhmo RV KL71
BFG KM2 (Although having a 3ply sidewall they do seem to have a history of having there sidewalls cut on sharp rocks so soemthing to think about with these)

AT
Falken Wild Peak AT
Cooper Discover ST Maxx (Only available in load range E)
MT ATZ (Only select sizes are available in a 3ply sidewall)
