    Default build help

    ok guys i have a problem i have a 98 tj with a re 3.5in lift and 33" i have a bored built motor. im also starting a rollcage this month. i want bigger tires but dont know if i should beef up the d30 and swap a d44 or 9 in and go to 35", or should i go all the way with bigger lift and d60/14b with 37. i need new tires soon and i can do the 35 setup within 3 months (money wise) but to go up to 37 setup itll take a will longer. im torn and need help the jeep is not a DD. but i do wheel often.

    just stick the 60/14 bolt combo under and run the 35's for now til you can afford some bigger tires. Going to the 44/9 combo is a waste of time, money, and energy if you're just going to eventually swap to one tons. It's easy to upgrade tires though.

    and military 37's are cheap and they work just fine, so you could always save a little dough by doing that.

    and x2 on not lifting it anymore.

    if youre planning on a 14b full housed (not shaved) better plan on getting hung up on most every thing on the trail. a 9" rear with 35 spline shafts or converting it to a FF would be ideal. im building a 40 spline ff 9" with 14b outers as we speak. itll be paired with a 609 up front.

    if your only going to 37's a 33 spline kit on a D44 would suffice. it also depends on your driving style and what you wheel in.

    *edit* this post was in reference to the 14b with 37's.

    this is absolutely ridiculous. 8" of lift on anything is out of control. id like to see what your swar bar extensions look like. ive never ran more than 4" of lift on anything even with 42's.

    Its a rock krawler coilover conversion but its not that bad on the road. I am planning on new coilovers to lower her a bit but more travel with a 18" shock. As far as Sway extensions im running the 6" JKS discos.
