New Member/Not new to Jeeps but New to Modifying

I bought this 2005 Jeep TJ X a year and a half ago..... when i bought it it had 35s" on it and when i drove it... it felt like i lost 6th gear on the highway. Had to keep it on 5th the entire time. I have 31s" on it now. Which made it better. I was wondering what i have in the back of this Jeep which i think it is not strong enough for 35s". Might be stock Dana. There arent any tags on the cover. I want 35s" and a 4" lift. Im not going to do any rock crawling... thanks for your help.

most people will say that a stock d35 rear axle (which you have) is not strong enough for 35's

what you noticed was the gearing you have was robbing your power train when going to 35's

Ya you most likely have 3.73 or 4.10 gearing. You have to check your tags on the axle

Plus many people break axles with the Dana 35 because its not strong enough so maybe an axle swap or super 35

Thats what i figured. It does have a RC LIFT on it already. Not sure which one. Maybe its justs parts left over from who ever had it. The 2.5" lift on the site doesnt have a transfer case drop as part of the kit so im just going to get a new kit. Also the axels were shifted and were not centered because they put the stock track bars back on it before they sold it.
