What axle?

I'm looking to lock the front and rear and run 33's for awhile then upgrade to 35's in the future. What would be the BEST axle for that? I want to do a one time swap/upgrade. I drive the jeep as a DD and go offroading about 1 time every month and an occasional trip to Tellico...

What do you currently have?

For me, I ran 35's on a Dana30 / Super 35 combo for quite some time. Had ARB's in both and had no problems. Simply doing the super 35 is a hell of a lot easier than swapping out axles...

hmm so a super35 would do it? It'd be cheaper and easier...I'm not into buying anything used as far as a part that has been abused...so I'd defidently go new if I got an axle...

A Super 35 (from Superior Axle, some other "Super 35" kits are imitations and are not much more than imported junk) would allow you to run 35" tires and an ARB air locker without much problem. Superior Axle has a new c-clip eliminator axle that would do the same thing too, a friend of mine developed it for Superior Axle.

have a S35 kit done in the rear. Regear to 4.56, then start looking for a used High Pinion 30 from a 95-00 Cherokee. Regear it to 4.56 and add CroMo shafts. Your done for 35's
