i've got a rough country 4.5 inch lift with a very cheap very simple transfer case drop kit and i dont have any real vibration to speak of, the dana 35 with 33's will work for how long i dont know i have a chrysler 8.25 with 31's and it works well for me.

On my 89 Cherokee I had a RE 4.5” Lift and no transfer case drop and no SYE, I did not have any vibrations. I was also locked front and rear with Dana 30/35 with 4.56 gears and never broke an axle, as long as you are careful it can be done, just don’t go ape **** while off-roading and you should be ok for a long while.

92 Cherokee - All nude and in need of some tlc!

The driveline vibes start at different heights for everyone. All Cherokee are different. Some people need it at 3 some people need it at 4.5. It would be a smart idea to get a sye though.

I'm willing to bet the 35 will go on 33s if you're "mudding"
