Need opinons on 35's

I was debating on whether to step up to 35's and build they jeep that way or keep my current build plan with my 33's
If I went 35's I wanted to go full width, and I saw where full size bronco axles are perfect for 35's. But is that true and what are pros and cons
I have the 4 cylinder so I have the AX-5 tranny and was worried about that also, would it be better to upgrade or just rebuild that tranny

To keep this reply short and sweet...

i'd keep your rig the way you have it and build for your 33's. Going to be a lot cheaper that way and youll still be able to get basically everywhere a rig on 35's can go. Plus, you can regear to 4.88 and be basically right back to stock in terms of how it would accelerate.

if you throw 35's on, you're going to run into problems pretty quick in terms of axles and steering as well as your braking so you'd have to build it pretty dang quick.

Well, if you have 33's an want to go to 35's with a 4cyl? Might want to get 4:88 gears. My jeep before I bought it had 35's and it ran okay on backroads but interstate and trail riding it sucked. I have 4:10 gears and 33's and I run good. If I was you, I would consider 4:88

5.13's would be best to pair with a 4cyl and 35's...4.56 for 33's

the problem you run into with the 5.13's is you'd need to completely replace the axles because a d30 can only go as low as 4.88

I've got 35's on my 4cyl at the moment...i have 4.10's and it can "go" in town but its terrible on the hwy or up hill.
It goes in on the 19th for a ford 8.8, front chromoly shafts, 4.88's, and a new steering system since mine is jacked. I also replaced the rotors and pads.

I have D35 in the rear with stock 4.10 and once it gets up to speed she is fine
My debate with the rear axle now is whether to super 35 it
Or 8.8 it

Its getting to speed which is the problem...

if you think you're going to go with 35's then go with an 8.8 as well as chromoly shafts in front...and of course the 4.88's since thats the lowest you can go with a d30.

The Dana 35 will not hold up to 35 inch tires in stock form. If you are determined to go to 35s, then I would be shooting for the 8.8 and a regear very soon.
