sounds like a good plan, as long as you don't wheel it too hard and stay off of the skinny pedal, you'll be ok/

Triple88a keep in mind re-gearing the rear will also require re-gearing the front or else say good bye to 4wd.

Well, while I agree with you in that REgearing from 3.07s to 3.73s would be a waste of time, I have to disagree with you in saying that running 33s with 3.73s suck. I'm running that combo right now. I have the 4.0L with the 4-speed auto. Absolutely no problem running the speed limit (and over) and with the ultra-low first gear that auto tranny gives me, I'm getting the best of both worlds. However, my Jeep came with the 3.73s. I would go with the 4.10s or the 4.56s as you said if I was going to regear.....which begs the question.....why regear a D35? Get rid of it and replace it with something a little more suited to rockcrawling if that's your style.

whatcya think about that?
ok the exact same thing happen to me in September 35's and a D 35 with 3.07's its a bad combo all you probably need is spider gears and that all MAYBE a axel but idk it cost me like 175.00 or like 200 with the syn fluid and a solid axel cover it not hard

here is the pic of the spider gear

whitebuffalo i might still have a set of spiders laying around if you need em....

branty Exactly what did the mechanic say needs to be replaced? I agree with these guys, go ahead and upgrade while you are spending the $. However, if you are wanting to stick with what you have, I have those parts in my garage. I would unload them to you for cheap, if you were interested. Where do you live?

After regearing and going with a super 35 kit, I have leftover;

D35 rear axles
3.07 gears
limited slip carrier

Just let me know if this would help you out.

SurfnSnow You've already broken a d35, why waste money on another one? You could get a well built d44 or a Ford 8.8 for either the same amount (or even cheaper with the 8.8) and 3:73's suck with 33's. You'd be happy with 4:10s or better yet 4:56s with 33's.
You'd be really surprised on the amount of abuse a d30 can take. I've got a d30, 4:56 gears, with an ARB locker, running 33's and that's held up really well

distortedtj yes

JeepCommandoja I have 31 in rubber and I can't what I have as far as d44 or d30 if I take a pic could u guys identify?
06-02-2008 06:04 PM
1BLKJP Well if you think it's an axle and your tire has pulled completely of our housing then i would assume you have a D44.

If that's the case then a set of Alloys will work well for you.

richp More info, D35, D44, tire sizes, etc.
06-01-2008 10:23 PM
spanky luckily ??
06-01-2008 09:43 PM
JeepCommandoja well i took the rear diffy cover off and everything looked ok. so now i believe that the problem is actually the left axle. any of you guys had that issue?
06-01-2008 08:23 PM
