    Default Dana 35

    I have an 02 TJ with 4.0 I6 and the gears in the 35 are 3.07. The I4 TJs come with 4.10s. So my question is this. I want to run 33s and instead of regearing would it be easier to swap out the axle? The axle should be direct bolt in replacement, right? Or would it be more cost effective just to buy 4.11 gears and do it. Mind you this, I have never regeared an axle and money is kinda tight. So, I would rather do the mod myself w/ help, instead of paying someone. Thanks for the help.

    Regearing is a BIG job. Special equipment needed (press, calipers, micrometer, etc...) Take it from me, it is not a job that you want to do yourself if you don't have experience setting up gears. If you don't do it right, it will cost you big in the long run and could fail at the worst time, ie at 75mph on a crowded highway. Trust me, I've been there.... not cool. If you don't plan to do any real offroading then a D35 out of a 4banger is not a bad idea and I would think that you could pick one up pretty cheap.

    I have a 4-banger TJ with 4.10 gears, and I'm looking to upgrade my axles, but I haven't found a set in my price range yet. If/when I do though, I'll be looking to get rid of my D30/35.

    Im in the middle of doin that mod right now. My boy is giving me the axles out of his old 4 popper. Yesterday we got the axles off and moved his old lift over to his new rubicon. That was a chore and a half. So they closed the hobby shop on us and we cant get back over there till tomorrow. Kinda sucks cause I want his axles.

    Yeah I shoulda taken pics yesterday but I was busy rippin his old SE apart. Its kinda weird cause the 97 that I was working on came apart faster and has less rust that the 04 rubi.
