35"s on a 4.10

I have a 97 TJ with 4.10 gears and I'm wondering if I get 35s will it be fine or would I have to regear even higher than that. Another thing; is a 6" lift the best size for 35s on a TJ? Thanks in advance.

35" tires & 4.10 is not a good combination, I wouldn't even try it unless your transmission is the 3-speed automatic & even that wouldn't be all that good. Is that 4.10 factory gearing? If so, I will assume your engine is the 2.5L which doesn't have the power to turn that big of a tire with 4.10 gearing. Not to mention if you have the 2.5L engine, that also means the rear axle is the Dana 35 which simply isn't strong enough for 35" tires.

5" of lift (or 4" of suspension lift and a 1" body lift) is fine for 35" tires, 6" would be excessive & give a higher center-of-gravity than the more appropriate 5" would.

What engine do u have?
What trans do u have?
What rear axle do u have?

Most people say u need at lease 5in of lift to clear 35s without rubbing. Im planning on 5.5in LA lift by Clayton. Others will argue SA or Custom. To me it personal preference.

You only need a 4" lift. Maybe you can get away with 3".

We need a little more info on tranny and engine size. As well as are you running a Dana 35 or 44. I would say if you have a 4.0 5sp. You will need 4.56 bare min probably numerically higher. For the lift I would run 5 inches of lift. You could get away with less (maybe) but on the trail and when at flex the added height will help.

I'll be running 35s/37s on 4.10s until I regear at some point. with the 32rh (3speed) 4.10s and 33s are optimal. So 35s would be okay. A manual might be a little worse, but you can pick your own gear so getting in the power band should be easy.

I run 4inch lift , 35's and 4.10's. Auto trans. No issues or complaints. Set it up and regear later if you feel it's an issue for you. Personally I don't think you need to with the auto but that's my experience.

based on the OPs profile, looks like its a 2.5 with a 5 speed
that combo would need something like 5.13s to get back to around stock "power"
that would mean new front and rear axles as 4.88 is the deepest you can go in the D30.
like others have said, the D35 in the rear of that jeep is not up to running 35s either.

and then there is all the other stuff you should consider if you want to run 35s....
