35" jeep life.
If you have 3.73s or 4.11s and 35s. I was just wondering how is your daily driving in your jeep?
trust me you dont want to do this. im sure folks will report dd is fine, take it off road on something technical and you'll be sorry. 35" tires require 4.56's minimum, 4.88 ideal..

I have 35" on my Rubicon with 4:11's. My daily drive is not bad, but 5th gear is useless. I don't really ever put it in 5th gear unless I am going downhill for a long ways. As for offroading my 4 low handles it just fine, but that is with the Rubicon Transfer Case. I would recomend 4:56 or lower with 35".
yeah i plan on going lower but i'm 16 years old so you know how that goes. and i'm worried about being heavy on the throttle and messing up the gears. how i don't know but the people i've heard of lowering gears around here have messed them up.

i just upgraded to 35's about a month ago and around town have no complaints except for the gas milage. on the highway i use 5th every day. it only bogs a little going up hills, which usually i can just power thru and rarely downshift unless im in a hurry. i haven't gottan a chance to get it onto the trail yet so i can't make judgements on that yet. all in all i do want to regear but it is not bad and isn't the top priority.

I have 4.11s with my 35s. 5th gear is fine on flat stretches, but if you need to accelerate or go up an incline it is useless. If you live up in the mountains you can forget about using it period.
