35's with 4.10's????

anyone have this set up???

Now that my 33's are on my sisters jeep im looking for new tires and rims. I cleared the 33's noproblem on the trails. 33's and my 4.10's ran fine i could still pull a 6x12 dirt bike traylor around town. I was just thinking 35's would fill up my wheel wells better.

im doin it with a 3.0. but it will catch up to your transmission later on down the road. btu if you just want to do it until you save up to regear, then i say go for it. you lose a little bit of power but hey, never really had any to begin with. lmao

I've ran this for around 2 years now ...3.0 and 4.10's. Yes you do notice a difference in power but as you already stated, a 3.0 wasn't a racer. HOWEVER.....I have not noticed any difference when in 4-lo. In fact I think it's better do to the fact of having a bigger contact patch and obviously having the t-case gear reduction help. I like my 35's, but again like most of us say who are in this situation, we wanna re-gear. I plan on going to 37's sooner or later, and I'm going with 4.88's which is as high as you can get in the front carrier.

When I swapped out my gears they asked me if I wanted to go with 5.13's . Nitro gears or something like that makes them.

A lot of guys run 35s/4.10s but most end up regearing in the end.

I have yet to find anything lower than 4.88's. Due to the fact of the ring gear thickness. Any lower and it won't fit in the carrier. Unless someone wants to chime in, I'm pretty sure 4.88's is as low as you can go with a dana 35 IFS front diff.

4.10's and 35's suck. They really really suck if you've got a manual trans...you can really feel those tires. I towed a 3,000 lb trailer with 35's and 4.10s and it was 'okay'....4th all the whole way on the interstate, and a couple 3rd gear hills. It sucked.


4.88 is the lowest I've found for our front axle. With .88's, it is kinda tight in that front housing.

I'm happy with my 35s and 4.10 gearing. I'm an auto and my truck is still nice and fast.

The one good thing I'll say about 35's and 4.10's...... is hitting the speed limiter in only 3rd gear....and not even getting high in the RPMs.
