:welcome: to the Forum..:wavey:
I've been looking at early 2000 Sahara's and Sports and everything I see has 3.07 rear end. I know there were 3.73 rears optional. Is 3.07 OK for general off road use or is it really too high? No rock climbing, just mud and general off road. I will be putting a 3"-4" lift with 33's on it.
^^^The TJ's are 1997 through 2006.
I had a 2003 TJ, with the 3.73 and 32's. It is a good ratio, for both on and off road. It should also be good for 33's.
I recommend that you stay away from the 3.07 and the Dana 35 rear diff.
Make sure that you go with the Dana 44 and the 3.73 ratio.
^^^The top is the Dana 35, with the round rubber fill plug. Stay away from that one.
The bottom one is the Dana 44, that's the one that you want. It is a better design, and more durable.
