now in the very near future.. in a few weeks i am going to be looking into getting a project XJ.. what lift/axle combination would you think would be ideal to run it with 37s... it will be a project so im going to buy stuff slowly so i will be able afford more expensive stuff to make it work.. plus if i break it i can park it and wait to fix it and still have my current jeep to drive.. it will still be getting the 5" lift and 35s

a set of HP44/9" axles should hold up to 37's. But then you are either going to have to set it up for coils or do a leaf conversion. For steering id go hysteer, obviously w/ the 44. 4.88 or 5.13 gears, detroits, and for the lift you would probably be better off buying seperate parts and pieceing it together. wil badger runs 8" coils w/ 36's on FW axles. I guess when it all comes down to it, you need to decide what u want and what will work best for you. Search button is your best friend Try Naxja, Pirate, and here and you will probably find all the information you need to figure out what u want.

well i have a while since the next XJ will be a project vehicle. so i have all the time in the world to fix it up the way i want..



its just the jeep i have now i have to figure out how i want to set it up.. its just i wont have the money to regear right away so i dont know how much un-needed stress it will put on my jeep..

plus i want to make sure however i set it up i have good flex, ground clearance and such..

also since i want to run TSLs and they dont have 35s what should i do? should i get the 36s or should i find some other tires to run??
