running 35's on a '94

im going to go with a 4 inch suspension lift and a 2 inch body lift on my '94. are my axles gonna be able to handle those tires? keep in mind im just a trailblazing weekend wheeler. so no
gi-normous rock-pits for me. and are the 3.73 gears gonna be enough? help!

I would highly recommend running 4.88's in your diffs. It will put life back into your cruising on the highway. You would also benefit greatly from a Terra-low conversion on your t-case, allowing you more control in 4-low, with a 4:1 reduction, instead of the lame 2.73:1 standard reduction.

That is the same setup I am running on my '95. It does alright. Now dont get me wrong it does lack alot but for now until I get some more money saved to regear and all of that good stuff, it works pretty good.

You could just put then in the rear, but if you go into 4wd its not going to like having two different gear setups. Now as long as you don't go into 4wd you will be fine of course, but matching your gears front and rear is very important.

oh man see i only thought you needed them in the rear. VERY good to know. so would it be smart to regear a dana 30? or should i look for dana 44's?

The front dana 30 will handle 35's better then the rear Dana 35. If you are going to change an axle and then regear (suggested highly) replace the rear to a Ford 8.8 or a Dana 44. Later change out the dana 30 shafts to TJ shafts as they use the same size u-joint as a D44. BTW if you want to install a locker this is the time as the install charges will be included in the gear swap. Why pay twice?

NO!
Unless you plan on pulling the front driveline out of your vehicle just in case you ever put it in 4 wheel drive by mistake, your front to rear gear ratio can not be off by that far.

3.07s and 4.88s are not close. Try running with one of your legs and walking with the other, something is going to get torn apart.

If you can not afford it right now...save up for it.
Even with 33's & 3.07s you will probably never see 5th gear.

You also want 6" of lift? What about a SYE, brake lines, shocks, etc...
If money is tight go in baby steps.
Start with the 2" body lift and 31's. Then save up enough for the 4" kit, larger tires, gears, Super 35 kit or rear axle, SYE and driveline.
The problem is the basic lift kit may seems cheep. It is all the extras that get the cash registar singing.

BTW - save enough to get yourself a quality kit.

No, it wouldn't hurt anything. Just decrease the performance a bit.
