I plan on installing the TeraFlex 3 lift with 33 x 10.5 tires most likely MTs or ATs in my 2000 TJ w/ 4.0 six, Auto trans, Dana 35 3:73 gears Trac-Loc rear, Dana 30 front. I will do probably 80% street driving and 20% off road (NO ROCK CRAWLING) but do want to have fun. My question is, how well do you think the diffs will do in the long run? I do plan on replacing them eventually, but not in the near future (unless I break something). Would like to hear you opinions

Re: Diff\'s

Your Diffs will last as long as you take care of them and don't do any extreme wheeling (it sounds like you are just planning on using it for the occasional jaunt offroad). Its the axle shafts that are the weak point and if you don't abuse them they should be fine, you just have to be careful with the torque when you are wheeling (if thats possible).

Re: Diff\'s

with the driving you explained, rest easy. I know guys with this type of set-up and they drive it hard off road with minimal problems. Save your money for now and enjoy.

Re: Diff\'s

if you plan to wheel like you say your stock axles will be fine.
