A 2wd car would be easier to insure as well.

Just wondering.
I've owned jeeps in the past and I enjoy the topless and the lift of them. I'm a 39 year old married man with a perfect driving record so geico treats me well. I've had numerous cars incl mustang gt conv, g35, eclipse spyder. I enjoy being out in the air because I'm also and avid sport bike rider. The jeep fits my personality and living on the gulf coast and near the beaches and of course in Florida the weather is perfect for a jeep.

Just because you haven't doesn't mean you need to use it

Ummm maybe you need a new insurance provider. I had no problem insuring my jeep and I got full coverage (theft, vandalism, and HAIL damage) for $60 plus change from State Farm. All in 10 minutes.

Not to mention even making left/right turns makes the front tires turn faster than the rear tires.
Interesting. I'm always learning new stuff!

One would think putting it in 4wd, with non-matching ratios, driving down the road at any kind of speed, would damage something internally when it bound up.

I guess not. I still think his Jeep looks great with the tires he has on it now. And still would remove the front shaft anyway....just in case.

TJDave I think your Jeep looks great in your profile pictures with the tires that are on it. 33's?

If the re-gearing the rear only is a temporary due to budget issues, at least remove the front driveshaft until you can re-gear the front to match. An accidental 4wd engagement while traveling down the road would be a greater concern than your D35.

I know that but thanks in case I didn't. I plan to later on and eventually do a d44 but the rear regear will get me down the road lol. I just wanted to see if the stock d35 stuff will work to get back and forth from work and the beach lol. Oh and the mall

What's the chances?

Ok no flaming in this thread please lol

I'm putting 35" km2 on pro comp 7031 15x8 on my jeep next month. Regearing the rear to 4.88. I do NO offroading whatsoever. I'm considering putting in alloy usa 27 spline chromoly axles just for piece of mind. This is my daily driver and beach cruiser. You think I'll be ok with standard d35 shafts for what I do? (Mall crawl lol) or should I go with the chromolys? Thanks for the answers guys
