Just don't wanna shell out the money for an entirely new set of gears and such. Hell who knows it seems 35's are a gateway to 37's or bigger so might just work out
What everyone here is doing is mixing in their opinion with the manual transmission and your 3 speed auto transmission. The gear ratios will be different for the 2 transmissions.

Oh yeah I've noticed that I like reading what other people run so its all good reading for me plus I've come to the conclusion if I want it to be slower than average and Meh offroad stay 4.10 with the 3spd auto and 35's 4.56 if I want a good all around and 4.88 if I want good off road but poor highway. So I dunno I may just try to sell the 4.88's and get a 4.56 set. Or ditch the whole auto idea.

Personally, I think the TF999/32RH is the best transmission used in JEEPS.

I liked the idea of it due to it being nicely geared, not computer controlled and I have it in an entire donor vehicle only thing that sucks is it being a 3 sod and this damn gearing dilemma.

The A999/32RH was a decent 4 speed transmission. Yeah, the ratio's between a manual and auto 3 speed are different (except for one gear) but it comes down to the auto 3rd gear being 1:1 which is the same as the manual 4th gear 1:1. So as a test you could drive around in 4th gear (same as auto 3rd gear) and see what it would be like before making your decision. I doubt you use 5th gear with 4.10's and 35's much though.
