Stock Axle With 35's

I just put a 4 inches lift kit on my 2000 Jeep Wrangler, and I'm wantting to put 35's on it. But I have asked around and I have heard a few different thing. Some people say that I can put them on there and I'll be just fine, others say that i have to get stronger Axle before I can put the 35 on. And last I have had people say, that I can put the 35 on and I'll be fine unless I put stress on them then they will break.

Can anyone of you help me out here? Is there anything else that I might need to know about?

2000 T.J. Jeep Wrangler with Automatic Tranmisson.

Thanks!!

What rear axle do you have? D35 or D44?

It depends...what axle is in the rear? If its the dana 35, I wouldnt want to wheel it at all with 35s. If you happen to have the dana 44 in the rear you will be fine on 35s. With the dana 35 I wouldnt bother upgrading your tires until you can afford to upgrade the axle first.

The front axle will handle 35's, Its the rear that can hit or miss. Do you know what rear axle you have? Dana 35(weaker axle) has a round plastic fill plug on the diff cover and the dana 44(stronger) has a square metal fill plug on the diff cover. You also need to think about upgrading a few other things like, steering, brakes etc. 4" is a bit on the short side for 35's, but with proper extended bump stops it can happen. Also you might need to consider a gear swap, depending on what stock gears you have.

Good info. There is a lot of work that goes into 35s other than making them fit. 4jeepn touched base on most of them with steering, brakes, and gears. As far as 4 inches being too short () you can also go with a 1" BL and you will fit just fine. This would eliminate the need for bumpstop extensions and also set you up for any under armor or skids you may have plans for.

As stated if you have a 44 rear you are fine, but a 35 on the other hand is a time bomb with 33's, 35's are a death sentence. The front will be ok if you don't wheel hard, or run a locker. Not a bad idea to swap in a hp30 with sleeves and good shafts if you do wheel hard!
