Ok so i got my axles up. I have a 29 spline 8.25 and a HP D30 both out of a 99 Cherokee. The are currently geared 3.55..... those are not going to fly with 35s. I cant decide weather i should go 4.56 or 4.88. Id like it to be able to hit 60 or a little more and be able to hold it up hills. Ive heard that 4.56s are similar to the 4.10s Im currently running in my jeep now with 33s and they are barely cutting it so a re gear is in the books i just cant decide yet. What would you all recommend to keep me road worthy on 35s?
With 35's, my 4.10's are fine on the road and inadequate on trails. If in doubt, a little more gear won't hurt you.
If it's worth doing, then it's worth overdoing.

The 29 spline is a good little axle. It's as good as a jeep D44 (stronger housing) and has good aftermarket support now. 5 years ago there wasn't much for it but now you can pretty much get anything you can for any other axle. I've never even seen or heard of anyone braking one, I'm sure it's been done but for the amount they get run locked on 35s in XJ's they are good little axles. I wouldn't go 37s on it, stay with 35s. Most people who say the 29 spline c8.25 is junk have never ran one, they get really underestimated.

And if you noticed I left it alone and was giving constructive ideas on how to incorporate the leafs into his jeep.
If you have a problem with me you don't need to drag it all over the forum and clutter the forum. Next time you need to badmouth someone please do it in GD.

-Links can be set up to flex like none other
-Leafs can be very stable
-Leafs can flex pretty damn well
-Leafs can be a very affordable way to stretch the wheelbase and when set up SUA, have limited drawbacks.
Can we all be friends now?
