you could have 3.07's.I getting ready to put the lift on my 04 Jeep and I couldn't decide what size tires to go with. The local 4X4 shop told me to look at my rear diff and find out if I had 354 or 373 Rear Diff. So I crawled under my baby and I couldn't find either of those two numbers. Does anyone know exactly where to find them without having to do the turning tire deal?
i've heard many disaster stories of 33's on dana 35...that thing is always on my mind when wheeling...so i'm very gentle and use finesse and i stop as soon as i start spinning AT ALL. you should be very gentle too.The shop told me if I had 3.73 I could run 33's and not effect my gas mileage as much. I've made up my mind and no matter what I'm rolling 33's.

yes i know this but there was a huge thread on this on another board and a bunch of the experienced guys were saying there were situations where the D35 broke that you wouldn't believe...in other words, the thing broke when they weren't even being hard on it. so thats why i don't let the tires spin too much...so that if they do suddenly grab traction then its not enough force to break it...Don't run a full locker in the rear and have some spare shafts on hand. Running 32's aren't that much different than 33's. It's not the tire spinning that hurts it bigjeep, it's the sudden deceleration when that spinning wheel that grabs traction and snaps axles.
i've heard of much more people on 33's and bigger break an axle than i have of people on 32's and smaller...all i know is that i definitely won't go bigger than my 32's until i upgrade the axle. i'm sure if your gentle on it you'll be fine but i just don't wanna push it at all so i'm staying at 32's...In your opinion, would that be resolved by running 32's?
