gonna go to 35's!!!!!!!!!

i decided to upgrade my 05 unlimited 4.0 six speed to 35's. i have 33' mud rovers on there right now( they came on it) i have a 3 inch lift with 1 inch body lift. dana 30 up front and 44 in the back. 3.73 gears. i just got smittybilt xrc medal fender flares front and back which give alot more clearance. i would like to keep my 15 inch black rock wheels. so im looking for suggestions on tires and what gearing i should go with. this is my daily driver. and i mostly do alot of backcountry driving with it. tires that are great in the snow are a must. any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

have you done anything for the steering and brakes to match the larger tires?

The lowest you can go on the D30 is 4.88. Get them front and rear. Depending how hard you wheel, you might want to upgrade shafts in both axles, or at least have spares ready. Set your bumpstops to keep the 35's out of the fenders. Upgrade the front brakes, and away you go.

Daily Driver: Goodyear Duratracs or Falken Rocky Mountains.

Mostly Wheeling rig: Goodyear MTR/Kevlar, BFG MT's. I have 35" Procomp Xtreme MT's only because I got a great deal on them.....They are OK too.

I almost got duratracs when I found out that the MTRs have been on national back order for 2 months with no release date. I had BFGs KM2s on my last jeep, but I wanted something with a little more siping so I ordered the MT MTZ's.

35's take more than clearance.
