I run 35's with 4:10's. Its not bad at all. On the highway running steep hills at 70mph, u may need to shift down to fifth, but no biggy..

not being rude. sorry it came across that way. I just didnt want to OP to take strongly opinionated info as fact. because many people run 35's on 4.10's and higher ratios, with manuals and auto...

I wasnt trying to be rude either... But arent you referring to your YJ and not a JK? And I dont see why you would post in a tech thread without reading the entire thread discussion first... We explained to the OP that it is not the ideal or "perfect" set up but that he would not be struggling to keep up with traffic or on the trail with this gearing and tire size.

i didnt get around to picking them up today, well, yesterday now i guess. im getting them "today" from 4wheel parts. my brother put 33s on his 07 6speed, hes got 3.21s, and while its not the quickest thing i personally dont think its terrible. so i belive ill be perfectly happy with 4.10s and 35s...but we'll see. once i have them on ill let you all know what i think. my worry now is im not sure if ill have to use spacers. once again, im a college student...any ideas on cheap spacers??

I have 35" tires and still have the 3.21 gears. The 4.88 are still in the garage waiting for an ARB locker to go with.
You will be O.K. for a while at least, until you decide if you need to change.
I also have a set of 1" R.C. spacers that I'm no longer using.
If you want them send me a PM and I'll give you a great deal.

I saw a set of 4 on Ebay for $100 bucks, but I'm not sure that's something you want to skimp on. Having a tire fall off while driving is no fun.

You will probably be able to live with the 4.10's and 35", just remember to hit that OD button every time you start the jeep up

That will cut down most of the tranny "hunting" all over for the right gear

I doit as soon as I know I'm getting near hills and mine are 33" tires and auto

Good luck

-An automatic with 35's would have to gear to 4.56's just to get to the performance of a standard tranny with 3.73's and 35's.
-An automatic with 35's would have to gear to 5.13's just to get to the performance of a standard tranny with 4.10's and 35's.
-An automatic with 35's would have to gear to 5.38's just to get to the performance of a standard tranny with 4.88's and 35's.

-A standard tranny with 35's and 3.73's is a doable set up (not a dog).
-An auto tranny with 35's and 3.73's is a dog...
-A standard tranny with 35's and 4.10's is a decent set up (lower end of stock performance)
-An auto tranny with 35's and 4.10's is a dog...
-A standard tranny with 35's and 4.56's is a good set up (higher end of stock performance)
-An auto tranny with 35's and 4.56's is a doable set up (not a dog)
-A standard tranny with 35's and 4.88's is an ideal set up (lower end of high performance set up)
-An auto tranny with 35's and 4.88's is a doable set up (close to stock)
-A standard tranny with 5.13's should be running 37's (getting to the highest end of high performance)
-An auto tranny with5.13's has just gotten to a stock set up (the lower end of stock)

Catch my drift?

Even some of these calculations are giving the auto the benefit of the doubt...
Thanks you so much! This was what I was looking for.

UPDATE, haven't seen this thread for a couple years, so

2 years ago I regeared my 5200lb JKUR--to 5.38s and now it's a real pleasure t drive my auto (O/D) and I can get over 17mpg-

Trouble is I'm not on hiwy very much and off-road it's unstoppable-

Still use the 33.6" Hankook MTs and I'm happy as a clam-

Now this pic is from 2yrs ago and I was driving at 50mph tops, for my new YUKONS breakin-



Otherwise known as "Grandpa's drivin slow"

4.10s are okay but I hate them going up real mountains with 35s. A regear is coming up, after I make a few decisions.

5spd with 4.10 on 33s

match the front D30 to 4:10 ring & pinion $500 upgrade ?

4.56 would be better but i wouldn't have to change a new D44 with 4:10 vs just match the front to what is already in it 4:10's

That sound logical, turn my X into a Rub
