Do you mean 3.21 gears? If so, yes you can. It will also be less of an issue if you have a manual tranny. It will be a bit sluggish but not that big of deal. You probably won't see 6th gear anymore but it's not that bad.

Why give bad advise? You can get 35's and never have a problem and they look good too. But 35" are very stressful on your Jeep and without beefing up the axles especially in a non rubi you can be going around a curve and hit it at the right angle and snap your axle on 35's because of the stress. It can also not happen to your Jeep. It is easy to see how much stress there is just by seeing how bad the MPG's take a hit. Not informing new people of the problems that can occur is just being reckless.

Again, this may never happen and in most cases will never happen, but it can and has. So it has to be a consideration when looking at tires. 35's is like jumping out of a airplane. You do it right and take all the proper safety protections and you will more then likely land safely ever single time. But some don't even with proper care. But if you just shove your chute in the bag and hope for the best you are at huge risk of something going wrong.

^^i feel like the OP just shoved his chute in his bag and hoped for the best.

seriously though, i can't believe 3'' of tire difference makes that much of a difference. almost seems like i could snap my dana 30 running stock 32's going around a corner lol

Think ur goin a little over board on ur thinking there... if ur tire falls off on a corner.. u already had a issue u missed. Which makes it ur fault not the tires fault

They don't just brake they wear out.. which is where taking care of them comes into play

No, I am not going over board nor am I saying you shouldn't get 35's rather saying you need to take in consideration that they can lead to problems no matter how much care you take. And people should know the risks as they should know you can put them on if they want. Your Jeep really wasn't designed for 35', you can put them on but you run the risk of problems if you do. Saying that taking care of them and you will have no problems is not right. you can take care of them and nothing happens and probably won't but that doesn't mean nothing won't happen either.

Ok so I shouldn't of said you won't have any problems... why does everyone take things so literally? Or is it because u got nothing to do but argue?... yes we all know u can have problems, and yes the bigger the tire the more chance of this happening.. my point is if you take care of your stuff you shouldn't have any issues.. besides you shouldn't have issue as long as u keep them tucked.. the real problem comes when you start stepping them out. That is when you get all the strain on the knuckles.

And just to save you from starting on that one as well. I am aware you have add a fair amount of spacing so your not rubbing when you turn.. so there is more of chance for problems.. look we r back where we started!!

Whole point is take care of your stuff and stop worrying so Damn much
Now shut up and enjoy your jeep

Because while you sitting there worrying if you can get threw those ruts or over those rocks, ill be beyond the next bend and down the trail :beer:
