Regear?

I've decided to go with 33's instead of 35's to avoid some of the many issues with going with a 4.5 inch lift.

Going to do 33's on a 3.5 inch RE SF lift. Will do a body lift if I get rubbing during heavy wheeling.

I think I'm going to do a Super 35 rear axle kit from Superior with ARB locker, and do an ARB on stock axle up front. Unless somebody tells me the Super 35 is a waste of money..

Also, still needs to be a decent daily driver, what gearing should I be looking at for 33's, I know it was a 4.88 for the 35's I had planned. Guidance is appreciated...

Let me know how this all works for you as I am planning on doing the same thing (same axle upgrade with locker in rear) with my YJ. I am going to use 4.56s as that will give me great power off-road and decent road driving RPMs.

I will let you know, planning on doing it in the next few weeks here.

Glad somebody else has the same scheme, and I'm not completely out of left field. I was pretty torn between 33's and 35's, but think I'll be able to handle just about everything with 3.5 inches and 33's.

Hoping the Super 35 holds up. Hoping the front stock axle works fine.

I would say run 5.13's but you don't have dana 44's. I run 5.13s on 33's and love the new to me truck all over again. IF I were you 4.88's and don't look back.

I was going to do the super35 kit to my Rig with an ARB locker, however after many slams against the wall, I decided to wait and swap in a D44 instead, when you start pricing the super35 kit with locker and then gears, its only like a few hundred more to buy a new D44 that comes with the locker and gears already........

welcome to my issue, slamming head against wall!

I did come to that same conclusion.

Think I'm safe on the front axle for moderate wheeling and daily driving?

yup, the D30 should hold up to a locker and some pretty heavy wheeling, its all about how you are on the throttle in bad situations, worst thing down the road is you'll snap an axle, then you have an excuse to upgrade

If it was my Jeep I would go with the Super 30 kit by Superior and wait for the funds to upgrade the rear to a Dana 44 or 8.8. I ran a Super 30 kit in my front 30 for about 2 yrs with 4.88's and 37 inch tires with not one problem. And there are several people in my club that run one with the same results. And we do all the hardest trails in the Area. Also, I have a buddy that had a TJ and went with the Super 35 kit against his better judgement to make it wheelable on these same trails and it only lasted about a year before it grenaded. He then had to save up for a built 44 anyways. If your not going to be doing the more extreme trails then a Super 35 kit might last in your Jeep. But if you are, save a little longer and go bigger.

Oh, and I would go with the 4.56's if your for sure that your going to be staying with 33's. If there is a chance that your going to 35's in the future, go with the 4.88's.
