Well, it's really not geared correctly for 35's. But other then that it sounds good. Any pics?

4.88's are the tallest gears that the Dana 30 housing will hold. This Jeep most likely has a 2.5l engine in which case, the 4.88's are as good as you will get without an axle swap.

Sounds like a lot of good stuff, the 4:88's may be a bit light but only you can tell. I know my Rio run's great with 4:88's but mine is on 33's. I would say drive it and then decide. You did not metion the price.

The 4:88's are fine, but I would swap down to 33" tires to get the most out of the 2.5.

What worries me, since he didn't list an axle swap, is that he's running 35" tires on a locked D35. Even with the axle shaft upgrade that's begging for trouble. Other than that it sounds solid from what you've posted. A link to a CL ad or some pics would be nice though.
