What is your transmission doing?
jeep has tried to fix 4 times...sometimes can't get into reverse...now goes into reverse but feels like emergency brake is on..big clunk when starting from stop..when accelerating sometime slips...jeep is saying the tires may be responsible and not their problem...but keeps on happening even just days after they 'fix'...

Well, it's 20-30 lbs more weight per tire, so it can't be great for it...especially over time.

I would fight them on that...Jeeps are marketed as offroad vehicles and modding them comes with the territory...secondly I am sure you can find hundreds if not thousands of ppl with 35's...including myself who have no transmission issues.

We need a lot more info than this to help. 35s won't wreak your transmission, it sounds much more likely there is a problem else where in there.

Uh oh. I've heard of this exact thing before...

Do have a teenager in the house?

Did you leave town right before the tansmission went kaput?

Was there a spare Jeep key hidden in the house when you left town?

Did the jeep have a faint burnt tire smell poorly disguised in fabreeze when you got back?

If you answerd yes to any of these questions I know what exactly happened to your JK.
