It's between keeping 35's and getting a year ford 8.8 and getting new gears and driveshaft and basically front end or just going down to 33's... which IMO would look too small on my jeep... (4" suspension, 1.25" body)..

Need some opinions.

that's a tough one. if it were me i'd keep the 35's and regear, but that all depends on what you can afford.

Basically It's a tossup! With 33s I would regear to 4.56s anyway! The D30 + D35 will holdup to 33s! I have a member running the same lift setup it don't look bag! This is 4" with 1" body and 33s!

Yeah that looks good but I just don't know I know for rocks and stuff 33's will better flex but 35's won't as much and I just don't know. I have a grill cover (chrome) on eBay right now that will pay for my rear axle if I decide to keep 35's but that means new gears and probably driveshafts then new rims and then bumper/tire carrier then new tires... Whew lol
