    ok, after doing alot of talking to my fellow jeep buddies and some people on the forums, i tradeds my iroks for a set of 35x12.5r15 xterrian terrains, the dana 35 shouldnt have a probably handling these

    but what will my top speed be with 35x12.5r15" tires 5.13 gears and a auto tranny? what about a manual tranny(been thinking about the swap)?

    if you already traded the tires, put em on and mash the gas. Its probably around 70.

    If you know your tranny's gear ratios, you should be able to figure out on this website. This will be theortetical top speed, but should give you an idea.

    My ratios are:

    2.8
    1.55
    1.0
    .7

    With a 35" tire. What does that get me?

    151mph? :cool:

    Why would you want to go really fast in something with 35's? :confused:

    It's not made to go fast, just over things. :D

    I have 4:10s and 35's and have gotten my speedo to 95 once and I was still in 3rd gear ending the powerband (4700 RPM). So I actually was probobly doing 115.

    35 / 28.8 x 95 = 115.5

    Brian dosn't run his on the highway anymore I don't think. He just tows it everwhere, and when he was driving it he was always pulling that pop up.

    I have this combo, but with my current D-shaft issues, I havn't had the truck over 55mph but it seems like I could go alot faster with no problems. at 50-55 with the OD off it's around 2900-3000rpm. with the OD on it's about 2500rpm I think.

    5.13's and 35's I can do a little under 100 mph, but I usually keep it at around 70 mph. which is 3,000 rpm for me in my Ranger.

    I don't need to go 100mph, and I therefore I do not drive that fast. I was mearly stating that it was the top speed that my truck is capable of going with the gear and tire combination.

    Exactly.......even worse with 5.13's, but I sure do like the extra torque.
