    So no-one has issues with 5.13 being too small? I'd rather have 5.13, just scared it'll break. Read some threads saying 5.13 is too small.
    5.13 is small but OverlanderJK wheeled the hell out of his with 5.13 in a 30.

    If you're scared of what could happen your wheeling will be boring. Just be prepared for what could happen and go.

    That's what I would do. Try to spend as little as possible on your d30 and save it for a pro rock.

    Man, 5.13 may be too low for 35s. I'd probably go with 4.88.

    And just to be clear, gearing shouldn't affect which driveshaft you go with. I think tire size has the biggest effect.

    I already have a 1310. Yep, tire size is correct. Maybe I'll do 4.88 then. I also want a rubicrawler so a final crawl ratio of 102 or107 isnt any different.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
