I recently bought a 97 TJ that had 35" tires on it when I picked it up. I swapped down to 33s.
Now that I can hear things that are going on, I could hear the rear clicking. So I opened the rear up and found some nasty lube and a few metal chips, that I determined that are from the spider gears.
I need some help here, the ring gear has D35 355 stamped in it. I assume the 355 is the gear ratio.
I would like to continue running 33s, so the question is: keeping the D35 under there, what is my best economical option? Replace and re-gear? If so, what gearing would be best suited for daily driving, highway and light trailing?
New to me....
