jpdocdave ^yep, 4.56 was the biggest originally made for that axle, but aftermarket now has 4.88 that fits, and the carrier is something like 3.73 or 3.56 and numerically higher.

your carriers are good to go for 4.88s

Coyote_94YJ Well considering Randy's Ring and Pinion makes em all the way up to 5.38 depending on the D30 you have, I'm going to have to say that yes you can change your gears to 4.88.

As for that D35. Take it out to a field somewhere and stick a little C4 to the side of it and blow the piss out of it because that is the most fun you'll ever get out of that D35. Replace it with a Ford 8.8, D44 or what ever.

The split in carrier sizes is between 3.54 and 3.73. So one carrier will fit 3.54 and numerically lower gears and the other will fit 3.73 and numerically higher gears.

kcruisin You'd have to change the carrier for a 4.56. They're a little over $50, that's alot more than I'd put into a D-35.
I think the cut-off is 4.11
