Been a super busy week, hopefully will be picking up a new dana 30 and a Ford 8.8 later this up coming weekend. I am going to re-gear to 4.88's as I am now in the market for 35's. My buddy has a great deal on a set.

So for ****s and giggles I threw the 35s on. The power loss was not really that much more noticeable than the 33s until I hit the freeway. Re-gear will be coming soon as I would really like to bring back a little gas mileage and power.

I put rear TJ flares on, I just need to do the fronts now. No rubbing in back, the front flares rub pretty hard but no fender contact still have room between fender and tire. Hoping the front TJ flares dont rub when I put them on but we will see.

Poser shotss

Im jealous of your set up! I need to get my Jeep re-geared and get an 8.8 under it so I can not worry about the 35 taking a crap.However I am stoked to go wheeling on them! I am still waiting on my 33s to sell, got a couple offers but im not willing to give them away so we will see if they go on my toyota or not..

I am choosing to not install the gears myself.... I'm going with some guys from a local group I'm in. I will be swapping the axle myself, I am just nervous to set up gears. I don't want to do it myself mess up and then end up paying someone anyway. I hope to learn how to do it some day though, as this will be the first time someone else has ever worked on my stuff (other than alignments). I am a believer in doing it yourself but with gears id rather lay liabilty on someone else...

I'm excited to get it done!
