Someone correct me if I'm wrong but doesn't it matter which rear end you have in the Jeep? I was told that the stock Dana 35C could only handle a max of 33's....and that's what I have on my 90 I6. Anyone??

Yes - 33" tires are about the breaking point of a Dana35. I've heard of people going bigger but only with upgraded shafts.

You should start looking for a Ford8.8 or Dana44 to put under there is your looking for 37" tires

yea i have been looking for a 8.8, i got a few more questions though, do i need to change out the front axle also?do i need to run the same gears in both differentials? it seems like i would have to change it expecially since i plan on off-roading a good bit. any advice on where to get a good Ford 8.8 anybody?

The front D30 axle is a much stronger unit. You will definately want to change out the gears in both because of the tire size you will be running. If you try to drive in 4wd with different gears front and rear you will destroy your t-case.

you can find an 8.8 out of most 90's models explorers i think the late 90's have rear disc brakes which is preferable.

on a side note. how far is clanton from the auburn/opelika area?
