So I have a 2007 jeep jk x? Idk it had the stock x stickers and wheels and nonpower anything so I'm guessing its an x buttttt it has factory swaybar discos and rear axle lockers? So idk......
Anyways if I get some 35in tires I know ill go from turtle speed to grandma on a walker speed but are there any other problem that can go along with it?

What?

How do you not know what model you have? Request a build sheet if unsure.

I just installed 35's

W/ 35's and the 6 speed it's tolerable.
Largely depends on your type of driving.
Also I don't have any added weight on the jeep which helps also.

I believe those were options in 07 only. Other than the power and MPG loss the only other issue could be more stress and wear on ball joints and other parts. If you wheel heavily you should also re-enforce your front D30.

I agree on the gussets. I picked done up online for like $65 and brought them to a shop and had them welded on. For such a small amount of money it's a great investment!

I have heard this before on 2007's. But did they put lockers on D30's?

As stated by others, you'll need to reinforce your front axle, buy an adequate tire carrier and save pennies to buy gas. Other than that, you'll wanna regear.

To address the title of your thread, "What'll happen if I dont regear with 35?"

Your Jeep will suck, power- and mileage-wise, to the point that you may just one day do a frustration header off some bridge, basically messing up rush hour traffic for a buncha non-Jeep owning peeps.

Don't be THAT guy.

We did get a little power loss with the 35's. Haven't checked the mpg yet, the mpg on the dash has dropped but I know it is not accurate since the speedo is 5 mph off. With the auto the power loss is not terrible. I can still maintain highway speeds with no problem. It doesn't shift a lot like I was afraid it would.

Like others have said, I am looking into sleeves and gussets. It's better to be safe than sorry.

Here is a link since no one posted it yet.
