Running 35\'s What upgrades to axles

I plann to go to 35's and will still have to use the 30,35 axles what would be the best upgrades and gears to run so as not to break things under the jeep??????

Re: Running 35\'s What upgrades to axles

I hate to say this, but you are gonna break something with those axles and 35s, and there won't be a darn thing you can do about it (except just drive it on the street). Stick with the 33s until you can afford at least a 44 front and a 44 or bigger rear. You can spend tons of money on high strength axles and stuff for the 30/35 combo, and you are just going to be dumping money into broken parts.

Re: Running 35\'s What upgrades to axles

Thanks for the advice,thats what I thought but I had to ask because i have this coil conversion and Ill have to fabricate new spring perches and control arm points to make the conversion to bigger axles but in the long run like you said it will be better.

...Pretty sad that them idiots at Explorer pro-comp don't have a fix yet [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/mad.gif[/img]!! I e-mailed them about 3 weeks ago and they still haven't gotten back to me.

ONe thing about that ProComp coil over, it WILL work with a Dana 44 rear. A guy I know in the area has a YJ that he stretched 18"(!) and he used the coilover kit. He said a couple good whacks and the mounts fit on the axles. I just saw the vehicle last Sunday, so I know he managed to do it.

Re: Running 35\'s What upgrades to axles

I just wonder if the front would go on the same way If so that would be the ticket,Ill have to take a better look at the parts to see if this is feasable down the road and to Paulee other than the fact I love the lift, Pro-comp sucks and will not get my buisness again

Re: Running 35\'s What upgrades to axles

I may get seriously ripped up for this one, but have you considered a Warn Full Floater and the new axle truss from superior that replaces the diff cover and bolts in 13 different places?? These are the mods Im planning on doing to my D35, only because Ive got 4.56's and a rear detroit thats going into it, and Im not one to do things over.. I have no doubt that the axles will hold up fine to 35's.

I've been looking for a good axle truss. I was about to make my own until I
read this post. Do you know any places that sell it? I'd like to see what it costs and what it looks like.

Thanks
