I'm involved in a LCG on 35s project.. We're looking at the HP30 and Super35 route. My friend wheels with his head not his right foot so I see that lasting him a long time. Might truss the D35 along the way.

I just want to re-iterate this fact.

What "fits" and what "hits" has much to do with tire brand and style as much as it does with driver and particular Jeep set-up...in addition to terrain to what Jeep and driver are on.

So I'm currently running 33's with a 4 inch lift, D30 chromed, upgraded shafts, high performance steering, 5 spd manual, with 4.56 gears. I want to up the tires to 35s for Christmas and i was going to add a 1" body lift. Is the difference between 4.56 and 4.88 that big? I live in Louisiana so I won't be doing any crawling...

I don't think the difference is big enough to worry about.

Hey I want 4.88s on my Jeep, what's the cheapest route to go with the least amount of professional installation help because I'm on an extremely tight budget. How much did it cost you to have 4.56s installed, parts+labor?

Sometimes you can get a little price break if you pull the axles out of the Jeep and take just the axles to the shop.

Its probably not enough to be worth the time though, unless you have a lot more time than money!

My next set of tires will *definitely* be 35s. I like to "rock" my Jeep in Baja canyons, and 35s would make my 'wheeling more fun.

this looks like my list of upgrades from the previous owner. I actually had 4inch suspension lift with stock control arms. What a learning curve....

So as usual I have to put a quick plug in. MY 99 Tj is running a short arm lift that came in with close to 5" of lift (Was supposed to be 4") I have done the SYE kit but I am still rockin the stock D30 and D35's with 3.73 gears. In these pics I have Good Year 35" MTR's. There is no body lift at all. Yes I do at full flex touch the plastic fender flairs both in front and rear but not the fenders. I do have the bump stops installed. And in case you want to ask the question, Yes I do take it off road. I take it on higher rated rock crawling trails and I do have open diffs too. img_1098.jpg

It's not really that bad, on-road handling is the biggest down fall. You can still have a lot of fun with it, even with the D35. Ask me how I know.
