Ok so I have a choice to make, I can either buy new 3.5" springs (get off the BB, really I'll only be sitting like 3/10" an inch higher) or can buy the 8.8 and start the build? Thoughts? After a good trail today, am leaning to getting some 33's which would fit better with the 3.5" springs and then what I have now, then do the 8.8 this winter. Thoughts?
Id build the 8.8 now before your 35 breaks and youre forced to buy a new axle under pressure. Not saying your 35 WILL break but, if you do your 8.8 now you have the convenience of being able to work and build it and still drive around with a working rig.
If the bb isn't causing problems then start building the 8.8 in a corner so when you snap the 35 you can toss in a real axle.

I might actually be doing both lol. Kolak got me a really good deal on some 3.5 RE springs, so I might order those and then next month buy the axle once some room in the garage has officially opened up.
