D30 holding up 33" vs 35"

Clearance, chop or lift(min of 2.5)
yes, youll lose 1-2 mpg possibly more from what ive read going from 33 to 35
gearing?
what are you gonna do with it....street/offroad
C gussets will help structurally
wheels? might need spacers depending on offset
and a whole slew of other unknowns without more on what you have now

Mileage will take a hit going from stock 32's to 33's.Same same when going from 33's to 35's.Increased rolling resistance,lift height etc.

Somethin's happenin' here,what it is ain't exactly clear,there's a man with a gun over there,a tellin' me,I have to beware.....

well.. all depends.. 33's is only a few inches more.. maybe lose 1-2mpg.. thats if ur running 29's.. 35's with 3.73 gears would suck.. u would need 4.88 or 5.13 gears... umm on a D30 with 35's i would do c gussets to be safe. no brakes dont need to be upgraded.. im running D44 with 37's and dont have a stopping problem.. hope this helps some

07 2dr Rubicon - Teraflex 6" LA - 37 KM2's - LoD rear bumper - Rockhard front stubby - Poison Spyder Flares - etc.

upcoming: Front D60, 40's, beadlocks.
