Re: D30 /D35 with 33\'s

they should be alright if you are easy on them, probably a good idea to keep spares if you are doing anything more than a gravel road. A close to bolt in swap is an 87-89? xj or mj d44 rear end, it's the same bolt pattern as a yj, only thing is spring mounts need to be moved, it only came in those with towing packages.

Re: D30 /D35 with 33\'s

I can think of three guys off hand in my club that have yj's and are running stock axles. teo with 33's one with 35's. So far, they haven't broken anything. Then there was this guy, came out on one run with us, and snap, crackle, pop.

Re: D30 /D35 with 33\'s

I see a lot of guys around here running 33's on the stock axles. Haven't seen or heard of anyone breaking one yet. I am planning to run 32's on my stockers.

Re: D30 /D35 with 33\'s

I know of people running 33's and even 36's on their stock axles, with little trouble. The key is lockers F/R and a 4 cyl, no power the break the axles and the lockers help distribute what little power there is evenly.

Re: D30 /D35 with 33\'s

I know of this one guy that has 38's on his with the stock axles and gears. He says he hasn't broken anything yet and I've seen him run in the mud bogs. He doesn't do so well because of the open diffs. I've seen many jeeps running the poser 3" body lift and 33's with stock axles with no problems.

Re: D30 /D35 with 33\'s

Anyone here read the trip reports on bc4x4.com? There is an obastacle called Hill 35 because two stock 4-cyl YJs with 31" tires snapped their rear D35s on it...
