Daily Driver and off-road gearing

What i gather is that if i am going to run 35's, the best gearign for me to put in would be 4.10's since it will serve as a DD and off-road, is this correct?
Also, when the gearing is swapped, must it be done in the front and rear axles or just the rear?
I have a 1990 YJ 4.2, btw, 31 inch tires (33 some day) and 4" lift in a few weeks. Thanks much all.

Re: Daily Driver and off-road gearing

With a 4.2, I`d be thinking at least 4.30`s. 4.56`s or 4.88`s would be even better. And yes, you have to
change gears in both axles.

Re: Daily Driver and off-road gearing

That is what I'm going with (4.10s & 35s). I'd prefer 4.56, but with a 258 and no overdrive I want to keep the RPMs under 3K on the hiway. If your going to run an OD tranny 4.56 or 4.88 would be no problem.

I'm running 4.56's and 35's. It does great on the highway. I also am running an AX15, so I have the help of OD.
