JUST GOT A GREAT DEAL but theres a catch...

ok i have a 2000 wrangler 1.75" spacers 2" body, with the d30 front and d35c in the rear 3.73s. today i just stumbled across a 2.5" spring lift with 4" shocks, 1" TC drop, rear trackbar with drop bracket, lower control arms for $150. Next i found 5x 35x12.5x15 bfg mud terrains for $375 with about 75% tread left. i dont do alot of offroading but i like the stance of a taller jeep. with this i would have 4.25 of suspension. how will these additions have effect on the drive shaft and gears. i dont have the money for a SYE and new drive shaft and $ to regear. will i be able to use these tires and lift with limited offroading?

PS. i dont care about power its a wrangler if it takes me 30 seconds to get to 50mph i dont care.

Can you yes, would I feel confident off road with 35's on a stock dana 35..nope. Make sure you get the correct length bump stops. Also make sure your brakes are in top shape.

I personally would not run 35" tires on a Dana 35c. Plus the performance with 3.73 gearing will be pretty dismal.

That cheap, buy it and hold on to it until you can do further upgrades.

x400 buy it now and install later... and save for other mods to go with it.. Worst case, you can always cash it out down the road.

im running 35"s on my 2000 4.0L d44 with stock gears and a 4.5" lift and the power is ok for me. granted its a little slow but its a brick with 4 wheels under it, what do you expect? sounds like the lift comes with everything that youll need including the t-case drop kit. with a d35 and 35" tires i wouldnt do much heavy offroading. youll be fine with an easy trail ride but if you hit some harder parts be sure to take it very slow and watch the use of the skinny pedal, thats what will break the d35.

You will be dissapointed with the loss of power with the factory 3.73's. Go atleast 4.56's.
