Problems on 35's

I see alot of posts on here about 35's being hard on a jeep. What are the common problems? I have a 4"RC short arm lift and a 1.25"BL, and 35x12.50 MTZ's on 15x10" wheels. I am in the process of putting a D44 in the rear and 4.88's with a locker, but my d30/d35 havent fell apart in the first 5 miles like some people say they will. I actually took it on a 500 mile each way road trip with no problems. Obviously the d35 is weak but for just driving it on the highway I dont see any problems with it. I am going to upgrade my brakes soon, but I have no clue what else would be the big problems that would make 35's so hard on a TJ.

valid argument I am not as rough as most are offroad, but its merely bc I cant afford to be, but if you have any input on what parts to upgrade to make it daily drivable and kind of moderate off road that would be appreciated.

The biggest problem is your D35. Get rid of that turd asap.

I would most certainly upgrade your steering set up.
Consider these:
ZJ Tie Rod Conversion
RockJock 4x4 CurrectLync

I would also consider a Vanco upgrade:
vanco brake kit

Please help. I bought an 02 TJ with stock axles and a 4.5 inch Rancho lift and 35 inch BFG's. I have done some pretty aggressive rock trails (no mud yet) and havent broken anything yet. Last excursion included towing a YJ for two hours (on the trail) as the YJ wouldnt start in the middle of 3000 acres. All the posts have made it very clear I will go BOOM pretty soon. I am willing to upgrade and would like to begin looking for replacements. What should i be looking for. Thanks in advance for your help.
