2000 TJ Lift, Tire, Axle, Gear Questions....

Hey All,

I'm new to the forums, although have been doing some research on here for a while - I'm a Jeep noob and have the following - 2000 Jeep Wrangler Sport, Front Dana 30, Rear Dana 44 (3.73 gear ratio) and am looking to install a Rubicon Express 5.5" Long Arm lift kit, 35x14.50-17LT tires - this will be professionally installed, but I was wondering if any of you guys out there had recommendations for this setup - gear ratio upgrade etc. I'll be using the Jeep for daily drive, and mild to moderate off-road.

Thanks! and I'm looking forward to getting acquainted!

Probably 4.88 if you have the 5 speed, maybe go 5.13 for an auto. New speedo gear - Might as well install some kind of locker front and rear while they are in there - cromoly axle shafts (optional but recommended) bigger brakes - upgrade steering to Currie - Slip yoke eliminator kit and new rear CV drive shaft to eliminate vibes and probably other stuff I can't think of at the moment but maybe someone else will chime in....Jerry??

Going to 35s and a big lift ain't cheap if you do it right. And WELCOME to WF!!
