Which is awesome on a steep downhill...then you are FULLY relying on your less than efficient brakes. Which if they fail, you are now a bat out of hell for the remainder of the hill.

Shift it back into gear if there's a brake problem...

exactly. with a manual transmission you would shift back into gear just the same. Not sure why there should be a difference there.

Or upgrade your brakes and quit worrying about it.

I hate to bring back my old thread, but ive got the 33 vs 35s flu but i know i want 35s but three questions

a) will my mpg change alot between 35s and 33s even though im running 4.88s for both?

b) will i be ok running 35s on the d30 for street use for now and put it alloys and vanco front and rear when i can afford it?

c)is it roughly $900 for the vanco kit for just 2 calipers,rotors and so on?not for four?

a) It won't be a huge mileage change since your already geared pretty well.

b) You should be fine with stock shafts on the street.

c) Yes, just the front brakes, but rear brakes are only 30% of the braking power, fronts are 70%, your stock rear brakes are more then fine.

After installing better brakes on the front axle with bigger tires, installing better brakes on the rear axle helps too...

You don't need to upgrade the steering, but if you wheel pretty hard then your going to eventually kill your stock steering.

Currie's setup is the best solution, some people run a ZJ tie rod, it's larger then a TJ's.

With some minor modifications, Ford Explorer rear disc brakes work very well on my 9"...

With 35" tires, It would be a very good idea to upgrade the stock steering...IMO
