35s on a D35 with 4.56 gears? Yes or no?

I have a chance to get some 35s for my set of 33s. The only question I have is, will my current set up of a D35 rear axle with 4.56 gears work for this size of tire? What opnions or ideas do you all have?

No the D35 cannot handle 35's for very long. It will break. The gears depwnd on your engine. I can't see if you have the 4 or 6 cylinder. If you have the 6 the gearing is about right.

I have a 4cyl 2.5L. I dont use my YJ for daily driving, just a trail rig. Are you saying that the D35 would break as a highway and/or a trail rig?

I wouldn't do it with that axle or those gears.

It is more likely to fail on the trail. The stress of wheeling combined with the extra effort it takes to turn those tires is a lot on what is considered a very weak axle. You will be very hard pressed to find someone who would recomend the use of that set up, or any setup that includes a 35. I run one with my 33's and haven't had an issue yet, but it keeps me nervous on the trails.

Perhaps you can locate a ford 8.8 in your area for a good deal. It's very close to the same with of the 35 and is a lot stronger. A bonus is that you can find them with disk breaks out of 94' and newer Explorers.

'95 and newer explorers had disk brakes.

My Dana 35 on 33 inch tires broke going up a very small hill on the trails.

Now I'm in the process of installing an 8.8. When finished I'll have less than $500 in it.
