JKUR with 35's

So...later this summer I want to do a 2.5" lift and 35's on my 2013 JKUR. Want to do my homework first though. Being a rubicon, it has 4.10's and Dana 44's front/rear, etc. Other info: Daily driver so the fact is its on the road 99% of the time. However, I've taken it offroad in the week I've had it and I certainly want to do more!

Question:

Will the stock gearing and axles and other parts of the JKUR be able to handle the 35's, or would extra reinforcements be needed (gussets, resleeve, etc)? Again, I'm not going to be on T.V. doing extreme rock climbing...mostly a daily driver and maybe 1-2x per month off-roading with the local Jeep club.

Thanks in advance.

You can still have 3.73's on a rubicon. They are standard on the automatic. Only the 6speed is standard with 4.10. Either way, you should be fine with either gear ratio.

As far as reinforcements go, it's all how hard you wheel it and how much you want to spend. It's hard to give advice to do it or not too without knowing how hairy the stuff is you'll get into

I got the answers I wanted out of my thread.
Maybe it will help you, I'm going to stick with the 4.10

Gussets are a good idea, other than that I'd say you're fine.

I do have a friend that runs 35" without gussets, and he's been ok. (For now....mwahahahaha)

I've been thinking of getting them actually lol. That or does someone make a stronger axle C? With so many C gussets available you'd think there would be like a titanium axle C being made lol.

I have been wondering the same thing it seems there should be a stronger axle c out there without a full axle swap but an axle swap may be cheaper

Automatic rubis have 4.10s again (checked Jeep's website yesterday)... I sucks for those who got stuck with 3.73s
