With the overdrive in the 42RLE 5.13 is where I want to be. My only problem with that is it means replacing my front axle so we'll see how it goes.

I would still reconsider the gears... at 5.13 gear, with 35" tires, stock transfer case and .69:1 overdrive... at 2200-2250 rpm youd barely be going 65. at 70 youd be at 2400rpm. with 4.56 gears youd be down to 2000 rpm at 65 and 2100 rpm at 70. Just throwing some numbers at ya, but at 4.56 gears youd be closer to stock and 4.88 would probably be my choice, and at 4.88 you wouldnt need to replace the front axle.

I agree. 5.13's is WAY overkill and going to be a lot more expensive in the long run.

the 42rle is a complex transmission, with 35s 5.13s is where one would want to be. but If you are sticking with the dana 30, obviously 4.88 will have to work

complex or not, overdrive is .69:1 ratio. I could see the 5.13 gears being justified if he never took it on the interstate, but for all the money he'd be throwing in it to run 5.13's, when 4.88's arent that much of a downgrade and he wouldnt have to buy a whole new front axle AND gears. Ive driven a wrangler with 4.88's and 36's and it was very peppy still and wasnt a complete burden on the interstate averaging i think it was right at 14mpg at 65. but thats also central illinois, not really any slopes to worry about

I wrote that, as well. Again, my TJ has 35s and 4.88s and it is perfect, but I have the nv3550 5 spd. The 42rle is best matched with 35s and 5.13s. BUT, as I stated, if he isnt planning on swapping the axle 4.88 will have to work, because the cost is not worth it.

Well I would like to do an axle sway anyway so I till think 5.13's are where I want to be. I'm sure a D30 could hold up fine to 35's but I don't personally want to regear my D30 once only to decide later that I want 37's and need to upgrade my axle and regear possibly again. I would simply like to do it all at once. Or I could get lazy and just do 4.88's haha.

BUMP!!

Who thinks I should hack my stock fenders to bits since they are a mess anyways, I could use the clearance, and I'm upgrading to tubes in the "near" future?

(Look at AlTheKiller's and Kenbo-Slice's threads to get an idea what I'm talking about)
