Dana 35/30 Ring & Pinion Swap

I have a 3.07 Dana 35/30 and want to swap to 4.11 for 32" tires. I have heard that I may need to change the carrier too. Can anyone help???

find a 4 banger that upgraded his axles. Should be easy to track down a 4.1x geared D30/35 combo for less than 600 bucks. Then you have all kinds of spares

Yep for 3.73's also. That is where the break is. 3.73's up use the same carrier.

I just recieved my new gears from Randy's R&P. Changing from 3.07 to 4.56, I needed carriers also. They set me up with new R&P's, master overhaul kits, and both carriers, shipped to CA, for $560. They were having some special for full kits front and rear. Around $420 before shipping and carriers, I think. You may not get the spare shafts as you would from the doner axles. I explored this but couldn't locate axles , in my area, that had 4.56 for a reasonable price. Even with a junk yard axle you'de need new bearing overhaul kits. Plus, I'm always worried about who used/abused the stuff before me. I know i can beat the crap out of my stuff, but I want to be the only person to beat the crap out of my stuff. That way I know what crap is left to kick

Swapping in a new carrier at $60 or so apiece should not be considered a big enough deal to affect any gear ratio decision. The carrier needs to come out anyway so using a different carrier to fit the desired ratio ring gear is nothing to allow to affect any gear ratio decision process.

You might regret not doing it, later. I've got a freind who "knew" that he was satisfied with his 31", 4.11 combo...sure enough, a year later he was regearing again to fit 33's. Be careful not to under estimate the jeep bug.
