With the street use AT type tires you're going with, you'll probably be okay.

How bad is 4:88 with 35s AX15 and a 4.0

I ran 4.88's on 35's with the AX15 and 4.2 for a long time and liked it a lot on and off road (except the highway where sometimes I wished I had 4.56's for top end), also ran the 4:1 in the t-case.

Im not sure Id take that to the bank. Calipers are less meant to retain an axle than bearing retainers imho.

Hopefully what he meant was he was going to swap to one of the copy-cat Super 88 kits.

If that's the case he has nothing to worry about.

Should've started off with that information, that's a whole different situation.

RockWoRM Well, I can tell you from experience if you do the 4.56/33's you will essentially have a 3 sp. You will shift 1st, 3rd, 5th. But it really helps in low range!

However, everyone 'says' they will only go 33's. If you gear to 4.56 you can still run 35's at just a tad under stock ratio.
Of course the down side to that is... I would never run 35's on a turdy 5!!

I'd be looking to scrap the axles you have and find an older set of non c-clip at the very least.
The older axles are semi-floating and are bolted in and somewhat held in by the axle bearing.
What that means is if you break an axle, chances are you'll make it off the trail with all 4 wheels still under your jeep.
With the c-clip axle, if it breaks, the axle WILL walk right the hell out from under you.

My axles are from an 87'

Chrisnvegas I paid 250 bucks for a nice clean set that had newish brakes.

I replaced all our axles to the older non c-clip.

If I break an axle, don't need the hassle of rigging up a log sled to drag my jeep home.

I HATE c-clip axles.
Even when I finally go to an 8.8, will need the c-clip removal kit.

c-clips are for Miata's not jeeps.
