super 35

can you regear then later install a super 35, or does installing a super 35 require messing with the gears and junk anyway so you may as well do both at the same time?

It requires doing the gears. The shop shouldn't charge extra for the s35 if you do the gears.

I was also wondering, some people say you need to start looking at brakes when going to 35's. if i go the super 35 route, is upgrading to pf brake pads the only reasonable upgrade?

if i do a 8.8 it will have discs, but thats more work. how did you get disks on the rear of your rig igofshn. and does putting disks on the rear really help that much? i thought most braking was done at the front?

I put disc brakes from a grand cherokee on mine. It's a direct bolt up. Cost me $150 and that was with new pads and ebrake shoes. Big difference.

Most don't want to spend money on a 35. I had already done the super 35 so I wanted the discs.

Igo,
I am planning a super 35 w/ARB as soon as cash becomes available. However, I am itching to get rid of the drum brakes. conversion kits are kind of pricey, so what is the story on the grand brakes?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
J

Find a GC with a D35. Take everything, (rotors, backing plates, calipers, ebrakes). It bolts right up.

Yeah, I paid twice. I got the gears back in 01 and the super 35 in 04.

badams : save the money and do it all at once....cuz they will have to pull it all back apart to do either or after one is already done....

IGOFISHN : i'm not real smart on brakes but i really like the idea of putting disc on my super 35....i dont want to steal this guys thread but what all will i need....just rotor, backing plate, calipers? pull the drum off and install the backplate, rotor, disc pads?...is it that simple? and you say 150 bucks?...is that junk yard price? thanks....im me if you dont want to further steal this guys thread even though i think his question is answered....
