tj questions

just trying to get some overall general information on the tj.
i havent bought one yet but am in the market and dont want to make a mistake before i buy.

first off what is gonna be pros and cons of both the 3 speed auto and the 5 spd manual?

i will want to run 35" tires how are the stock dana 30 and 35 gonna hold up to this sized tire. (this is primarilly gonna be a street vehicle and an ocasional trail truck)?

also what gears should i run with 35's manual trans and auto trans?

is there such thing as a jeep that has a 4-6" lift big tires rides decent on the road and can hold interstate speeds?
No jeep yet.
Lookng for a 6cyl tj

If your looking for a tj to run 35s out the box you need to look into 06 rubicon in my opinion.Theres good extras comes with the rubi

Dude...Those are pretty big tires. I'm not the expert that others are on here, but from what I have read, I would not run those tires without the Dana 44 that the Rubi comes with. I don't believe that anyone runs over 33s with the Dana 35. Again...the 'experts' will chime in, but I think you are pushing it. What I will say definitively is to get the 5 speed. IMO the automatic is just not appropriate for a Jeep.

x2 on getting a Rubicon, It may cost a little more but from what you seem to want (35s,highway speeds,etc)it would be worth it.

I run 35s with the dana 35 but i upgraded to alloy axles 30 spline if you hav'nt bought a jeep yet the rubi is the way to go, auto would be fine.
