Has anyone ever taken the lift off of their jeep and gone back to stock ?

I used to live in CO and then in Idaho. I had a ton of places to go wheel , but now I live in Omaha and all I do is drive my jeep up and down the freeway, no place and no time to use my jeep. I feel like it is a waste of a good jeep.

My main question is I have 4.10's and an SYE. If I did go back down to stock, can I still use that driveline set up, and what abot 30's or 31's with the 4.10's

Thanks....and don't hate me for thinking about going down instead of up.

If you already have an SYE and gears, either leave it or sell it and buy another one

You will need to have your rear DS shortened or remove the SYE and go back to stock.

Depending on the DS you have, I would say go get a junk yard unit and have that shortened, rebuilt, and balanced.

4.10 and 31's will work.
