I've wheeled stock 30's on 35's a good bit. The main concern is the shafts and ring and pinion.

Well I could get used to the low gearing...or are you talking strength wise?
I have a 5speed and 3.55's, 3.55's & 35's will be almost identical to 31's & 3.07's. Which isn't to bad..but I would regear once the rest of my rig is done.
Strength wise may become a problem...its more of a camping/ExPo rig, but I do some mild/moderate trails. Shafts just got spicer 760X's but I've been looking for chromos..I'm truely thinking about running 35's lol.


My D30 is sleeve, boxed upper CA mount, CA mini skids & gusseted outer sleeves.

I'm totally happy with this setup. Works awesome, no rubbing. I do, however, need to put another washer behind the steering stops. I got a little lca lovin' from the tires. Also, I NEED TO GET SOME SHOCKS IN THE BACK!!!!! Crozet also did some bodywork. I'll get more pics of that later, but I need to do some rocker replacement.

Today I FINALLY ordered a set of Trail Gear shock hoops from Foothill Motorsports off of Pirate. Got them for a great price. They will match any TG price you can find.
