3.54 Gears with 33" tires. Is it ok
Are 3.54's ok for 33" Tires
I am having a hard time finding axle's I want in my (short term) budget. I have either a 3.54 or 3.73 in my rear amc 20 and looks like 2.73 in my front dana 30. I am trying to have the jeep done by the end of the month and don't have the money to spend on axle's right now. I just found on a local site a set of wide track axles with 2.73's and a set of narrow track with 3.54's both amc 20 and dana 30's. I am thinking of getting the axles and swapping the gears out to the 3.54's are in the wide track and putting those on. Oh and I am paying 130 for both sets and a set of 4" lift springs.
So can I get away with the 3.54's short term? When I build axle's for the jeep I am going to go 4.10 or 4.56 on better axle's and will probable step up tires to 35's or so. I also just found a dana 60 with posi for under $200 but can't afford to have them built for a while. The guy as two one is a 4.10 the other 4.56 but like I said can't afford to have them cut down for a while.
I guess all I really want is something that is going to survive a few trips around town and one trip to moab (mellow) until later in the summer. Will the 33's and 3.54's work
Also does anyone want the 4" lift springs? They would be VERY cheap.
I have a 4.2 and a 5 speed.
