Tell about this set up

I got a friend who races in our local mud championship, he's a mechanic who does his own lifts, I ask the guy if could do one for me and he said yes.

Heres the deal what do you think about a 3" Susp Lift, 1" shackles and 31x10.5" in a 15x7.5" rims? He puts in the drop Pitarm and lowers the tranny and extended brake lines.

Finally I think I'm gonna be able to play nicelly in the mu.

The 3" supsension lift will clear 31's fine, you may be able to get 33's with limited flex. The 3" lift and 1" shackle lift would be good if you were going with 33's

Does any body have pictures of this set up? Can I go 32"s with my crappy Peugot and D30 and D35 without breaking a lot of stuff everytime I drive it?

Sure you can go 32's. You may rub a little, if it becomes a real issue, bumpstop it out. I'm not a fan of shackle lifts, but an inch isn't too bad, may throw out your steering a little (caster). I'm on stock axles and go with the big boys, I just have to remember that I'm on stock axles and know my limits, usually. I snapped both rear axle shafts on a sand berm, driver error. Winched to the top of the berm, jacked up in sand, both axles out,had to pull the carrier to get the stubs out, new axles installed and moving again in an hour and a half.
Go to a 4x4 shop and buy all the used D35 axle shafts you want in most places, I get mine for $50 a set.
I certainly intend to upgrade my axles one of these days, but for now, I'll keep following Osburn as he drags those D60's over the rocks and paves the road for me. The D.I.C. is shopping for 37's now, gonna have to change my tactics.

I read somewhere (maybe Jeep Bible) that the D35 and D30 axles would safely fit 33x12.50's, which is what I run with no problem.

You should be able to go bigger than 31x10.50 w/ the lift+shackles.

Thanks guys, I'm gonna try fit 32" if I can get some extra money. Parts are VERY expensive down here.

Do all the work yourself with the help of a friend. You'll really learn about your jeep that way and it really isn't that hard to put on a lift, or work with axle u-joints.
