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

You should be fine . I know of 2 jeeps I run with on the trails running 35's on the stock D35 and have yet to snap anything . Most people on here will say you need this that or the other but all there info is all off the net what he said /she said not many have any hands on .

You need to gear the front as well. Regardless if you off road or not. If you want your 4wd to work you need to gear the front as well.

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 :rofl:

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.

No it isn't, it would just bind up & stop. The front & rear axle ratios are already different on most of our Jeeps as they leave the factory & the smaller ratio difference of .01 would make the forces even greater than a larger ratio difference would. Our drivetrains aren't that weak.

Not to mention even making left/right turns makes the front tires turn faster than the rear tires.

If your only gonna regear the rear then remove your front driveshaft

What is easier to provide more force with when turning a bolt... a bolt with a very fine thread or a bolt with a very coarse thread?

What about initial impact?

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.;)

Jaxon1023 04-28-2013 12:19 PM

I won't engage 4wd and I'm the only one that drives it lol

Thanks for the compliments. I just think the 35's will look better

You said no flaming, so I won't. Here's an honest question. If you're not ever gonna engage the 4wd, what's the point of havin it?

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

Just wondering.

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.

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 ;)

^^ Something funny I heard once: It's like a condom, I'd rather have it and not need it then need it and not have it

If say you had 4.88 in the rear and 3.07 in the front and tried to engage 4wd while moving the t-case would grind like hell and not go in. The only way you would get into 4wd is if you weren't moving. If you then tried to move forward everything would bind and you wouldn't be able to move.
