The "One-Millionth" Can My Jeep Handle 35's?
 
I am currently running 33" tires and have had no problems or worries from day one. But a friend of mine wants to trade his 35" tires for my 33" tires. I think I wheel the **** out of my Jeep but I'm pretty conservative with it. I don't try stuff I think I'll break something on. Do you think my locked D30 and my chromalloy/locked d35 will handle them?

Thanks in advanced!!!

You should be OK but you already know the answer to your question. Theyre more likely to break than upgraded axles. Some will chime in and say theyve wheeled for years and had no problems, others will tell stories of exploding axles. And then everyone will start arguing about the 8.8 being stronger than the 44. Just like the other million threads about the same thing. The end.

If it's the millionth time, why not check what other members are running in previous posts? Like every other post will say, yes and no. You can but it's not recommended. I ran 35s cautiously until my 8.8 was finished. If your brakes and wallet can handle the worst possible outcome then go for the swap.

i ran 35s on a locked dana 30 for 3 weeks of wheeling and it broke...before that i had done 6months straight of wheeling (every weekend) without a single broken part...

Is your Superior CCE + Detroit the 30 spline variety? If so, it's my understanding the odds are in your favor to run 35's. If it's the 27 spline & the lunchbox Detroit, it's my understanding the odds are against you on 35's...

I'm about to install a Superior CCE (27 spline) with a PowerTrax, (sitting on the work bench...) and have been advised by someone I trust on the matter not to run 35's with that set up.

within seconds of installing 35" tires on a stock TJ it will explode in a ball of flame, roll out of you driveway as the parking brake cable melts. Crash into a bus ,loaded with nun's and children. Thus rendering you Jeepless, broke and sad.

The more important question here is. Why would you buddy want to trade 35" for 33"s? Is the remaining tread the same?

I am on 32' new mt/r's and so far more than once I have been able to crawl without getting stuck while watching a couple of guys on 35's get stuck. It's not about bigger tires, it comes down to ability.

Just my $0.02

I've always run 35's with an open diff.I wouldn't do it on a locked d35.

jeepinmichguy_ 07-12-2010 08:12 AM

i would stick to the 33's.

Nope, won't work.

the other 999,999 people who asked took all the luck from you. Sorry. :(

You might be able to pull it off. I have been wheeling on d30/d44 combo locked front and rear and havent had a problem with the d30 breaking. Sometimes I take the harder lines too. Im generally a lucky guy tho, and plan on putting alloy shafts in the d30 or upgrading it.

How about a little more info on your d35? With alloy shafts and new gears that are properly set up you might be able to pull it off. There are a couple people running a super 35 and claim they run some rugged stuff and dont have problems.

I almost went with a super 35 kit, but in the end I built a d44 with alloy shafts so I wont have to constantly worry about when it will break...
