Yes. Everyone here that runs this combination of 33's, 4.88's and the 42RLE seems to be happy with it though.

I don't think it would be worth the investment to go from 3.73 to 4.10. Not that much difference.

Maximum re-gearing for D30/35?

Is there such a thing as a maximum gear ratio for an axle? Understood that at some point if you're thinking about 4.88's, 5.13's, or higher maybe you should be thinking about a beefier axle.

I've decided to get the most out of my stock 30/35, running 33's (max 35's), putting an Aussie locker in the front, and re-gearing (currently 3.73's). Do 4.10's seem like a good target for 33's and 4.56's for 35's?

From what I've read it wouldn't hurt to upgrade my axle shafts as well?

Thanks!
