Dana 44's are safe locked with 35's or even 37's. Dana 30's are also safe locked with 33's and open to probably 35's. You would need some serious power to break a Dana 44 on 31's

Thats what I figured but I haven't done much roading due to health reasons but this spring hopefully I can enjoy my jeep abit more So running 31's shouldn't be an issue either...

PStov98TJ Never heard of or seen a D35 break with stock tires. I mean I guess if you're doing break stands...

The D35 holds up fine to 33's. Just don't be drag racing and show boating for high school girls like a 15 year old boy would in your jeep and it'll last.

Some last 10 years like yours and some bust with stock tires after 1 year.

ThatWhiteMachine101 Haha be careful there, that Dana 35 in the rear is a rolling travesty on wheels. And 33s will done kill that damn thing real quick no matter how careful you are. I wouldn't even waste my money if you got a 35 in the rear, just save up and get a set of rubi axles or a 44 out of another TJ.

Also your gonna have complete crap for clearance with a 2" lift unless you get true flat fenders like some metal cloaks. Have fun poppin off a fender or havin zero articulation. Ya need atleast 3 1/2" of lift for 33s without flatties.

Either way, good luck man.

I absolutely agree my friend. That being said, you sound like an intelligent, patient person........

It CAN be done by someone who has never done it, but the margin for error is much greater. Someone with good mechanical knowledge and skills should be able to tackle it and may not have to take it back apart two or three times, a newbie most likely wouldn't have the same ease.

freeskier Yes, please do your research and make sure you really know what your getting into here. Take it from someone who has done gears themselves, if you've never done it before it's a lot more work than you can imagine.

Listen my friend, I am honestly trying to be friendly and genuine. If you can set the backlash on your diff's why are you asking questions about gearing ? I can't stress enough how friendly I'm being, but someone who is comfortable regearing wouldn't be asking questions. Just don't want to see you get in over your head. Do me a favor and do a little research. Good luck my friend!!

JakeBreen Got all the tools to do. My uncle has his own well service, so he has a lift and all for us to do it
