I have a 92 wrangler. I'm putting a 4 in suspension lift, 1 1/4 inch shackles, 3 inch body lift, and I would like to put 35x12.50 super swampers on my 15x8 wheels. I want to make sure my stock axles will be fine and that the wheel size is ok for that much tire. This is just a toy. Offroad use only, no highway use. Any input would be greatly appreciated!! Thanks!!!

So what tire size would I need for that big a lift? Everything except the tires have been ordered so I hope there won't be any problems

3" body lift is gonna look kinda silly i think.. i'd stick to no more than 1", and you'll prob hear that a lot over the forum, but its a matter of personal opinion i guess..

you still running the 30/35 combo?

The 3in body lift was on it when I got the jeep a few months back. And what do you mean by 30/35 combo? ( that was a post from an earlier comment) thanks for all the input!

I'm running stock axles and gear ratios. I think it's 305 gears but I'm not 100% on that.

yea... you're gonna want, at a minimum, to regear your diffs if theya re 305. You'll see an increase in your power and you can probably start using that 5th gear again

yeah, and while the dana 30s (up front) are a little stronger than the dana 35s (rear), as stated, you def want to at least re gear. but the 35s dont hold up well to large size tires... they're not really made for heavy duty (large tire wheeling) applications, the c clips that hold the inner axles in are known to break with tires 33"+ esp under extreme conditions

best bet is to go with a stronger rear axle, a ford 8.8 or a dana 44... i have to recommend the 8.8 for the ease of swapping and it comes with disc brakes (that's what i did), but a dana 44 is awesome too, so whatever you could find cheaper would prob be better
