No power! Will need 4.56s minimum 4.11s Could suffer carnal damage on trails if you have a heavy right foot.

yea...lack of power unless you change gears....plus the stock axles is gonna most likely snap like a twig under those big ole tires....

with enough lift, new gears, and beefier axles you'll be fine.....you might be able to pull off 35" on the d30-d35 combo if you wheel pretty mildly

Would I be better off sticking with 33's?

The auto should help the axles survive though. I think that is why my locked dana 30 with 33's has held up.
