Detroit Trutrac 3.07 / 35?

I'm being told by Quadratec that Detroit trutrac is not made for a Dana 35 / 3.07.
is this true?
If this not true, what are the part numbers for a Detroit Trutrac for a jeep with 3.07 ring and pinon for the front 30 and rear 35?

Sorry, I can't help you with your question, but I have to ask...

Why are you sticking with those crappy 3.07s?

I agree. Onroad or especially offroad, a lower ratio is highly recommended.

It doesn't appear that Tractech makes a Detroit Truetrac for your 3.07 anyway according to their chart at http://www.tractech.com/docs/TT-List-LTPM1004.pdf

Your right I should go to a 3.55 rear & front I'm running 32" tires. I was talking to Quadratec and was surprised to find out that Tractech doe's not carry a limited slip for a 3.07! What if you are running stock tires

If your gonna pay the money for a locker/limited slip, you should regear at the same time.

3.55 is still not low enough.

I'd recommend 4.10, maybe 4.56 w/ a 5-spd or if you think you may go bigger in the future.

I just got off the phone with Quadratec. They are very helpful.
I'm going to 3.73 gears front and rear. 32" tires are large enough for what I use the Jeep for. The trans. is a 3 speed auto. I'm putting Truetracs front and rear.
I'm on my way to pick everything up in West Chester.
What do you think?
Thanks for the help!

Go with 4.10. You'll regret it later if you don't.

3.73 is a stock ratio that is best for 30" and smaller tires.

I have nothing against Quadratec, but you can do better for both service and pricing. You should try some of the vendors here. Some have some pretty good deals for forum members.

3.73 with 32" tires will run about 2500 rpms with my automatic
4.10 with 32" tires will be runnin 2800 rpms!
As far as service I'm installing all this.
Price is close without shipping I can pick everything up.

Their recommendation to use 3.73 gearing for 32" tires is another example of just plain incorrect advice being given by Quadatrac, likely from a salesman who has little actual offroad experience. 3.73 is the most common ratio Jeep installs on TJs that come with 30" tires, not 32" tires. For larger tires than 30", you need a lower ratio and for 32" tires, I'd go with 4.10. If you think the "bug" might someday bite you and you might ever go with 33" tires, I'd go with 4.56.

Ok Ok I'll go with 4.11s. I'm glad I asked. This guy is gona Sh*t when I call him back to change the order.
Again thanks for the help

2.800 RPMs at cruising speed is perfectly fine.

Good decision. Just don't let him talk you back into 3.73 as he may try to do since he'll actually have to do a little extra work to change your order.

As far as the rpms go i think my 4 banger cruises at about 3000 rpms at 70ish.

Beans, if you've never installed R&P gears before, I hope you have a friend that knows how to get them installed correctly there to help guide you.
