|G.I. Joe||How much would it cost to regear to 4.88 automatic?|

|G.I. Joe||Thanks for all the help guys. I talked to some local guys too and made the decision on selling or trading the 35's for some 33's and running like a 2.5 lift or 3 inch lift. I did not realize i would need to change the rear axle and the gears and everything to keep driving as well and have the lift. It was going to be much more than i was trying to put into the jeep at this time. I would have pretty much been doing an overhaul. anything i would have to change on the jeep after the lift kit to run 33's?|

OP, also something that I forgot to mention. You will need at the very least to have adjustable upper control arms. I would go ahead and poney up for lower ones as well. Uppers will sent your pinion angle correctly and the lower ones will push the tires back where they belong in the wheel well. Because of your lift the rear axle will be pulled forward some. Now I would highly recommend Curry or Savvy/Curry (look at savvy site for those). They made with a JJ's but the thing about them is they do not bind in housing. JJ will yeild better flex and will last thousands of miles. They are easly rebuilt if they ever needed to be. Get on jeep forum and speak with Savvy. They can hook you with some good prices.

|Mortalis5509||Do not put a t-case drop on. You are lifting the jeep to get it higher and when you put a t-case drop on you just went backwards. Buy an SYE from Advance Adapters and then a Tom Wood drive shaft. Looking around 500 or so if you do it yourself. I have read that the SYE is easy to instal but I don't since I own a Rubi which doesn't require an SYE.|

|scgeek12||also put an add up on CL and trade those 35's for a nice set of 33"s and then you wont have to worry about the D35 (as much lol) and they look just as good!|

|G.I. Joe||All the help is great. I plan on doing a small bit of offroading in the beginning. I want to get into it but I will not be rock climbing. I love the jeep and want to run 35s. I want to try and get into the offroading. Any quotes on how much it will cost for the sye/cv shaft done? and how much can the dana35 withstand before exploding.|

That is a cheap way to fix the problem .

|doclouie||A 4" lift will most likely need a SYE & a CV drive shaft. I have never heard of one going that high without needing one. What will you be doing with it? 35s and wheeling hard on a D35 will explode that axle. If you are pavement pounding then it may do you just fine or it may not. There is a lot more to just putting 35s on a Jeep if done right. I must disagree on any lift should be run with a SYE/CV. That is just not needed on the smaller lifts, but a 4" is not a small lift.|

Agreed. Any lift should be run with SYE/CV shaft. You MIGHT not have a problem, but I for sure wouldn't risk it. More information about your plans with the Jeep would also be helpful. As in, how much off roading do you plan to do, future upgrades and such.

Any lift should have a sye and cv shaft . Some guys dont put them on and dont have any problems some do . I would put it in with a 4'' lift for sure .
As far as the 35's your axles need upgrated if your running a dana 35 rear . I'm not saying you cant run 35's with a D35 but you will have a good chance of having problems.
And welcome to the form . do a search this has been talked about alot . Good luck

Okay so just upgraded to a 2000 wrangler tj Sport inline 6. and have a set of 35x12.5x16s to put on it. Have been hearing conflicting stories about this and that about putting on a lift and the tires. I am looking at rubicon express 4 inch lift but it says you need to instal a slip yoke eliminator (SYE) and CV driveshaft on the stock NP231 transfer case. Is this true or is it just a recommended thing. Like I know others that haven't even mentioned either of these things running 35s with just the lift kit? can somebody please help me
