To be 100% honest, Iíd rethink a lot of this build. Since youíre going to be starting out with a D30/35c combo, axles are going to be going in sooner rather than later. Youíre also going to wind up with 4.56 or 4.88 gears on account of the 4.0L. What I would do is in order below.
Source a Ford 8.8, Artec truss and lock/gear it. Truss for the front D30, upgrade the steering (Currie)
Clayton long arm kit front and rear, Clayton frame stiffeners and skid plate
This is your starting point, you can run 33s or 35s on that suspension and axle setup and be pretty safe from breaking things. Then take care of the rest as money comes along.
Ditch the GoLight, yeah itís nice and fancy but itís expensive as hell and youíll never use it. Put a 40Ē Rigid E-Series bar on the roof and a Dually D2 on each rear corner and youíll be fine for light.
Having 2 Hi-Lifts is useless, Iíd be buying an X-Jack over a Hi-Lift any day.
Buy a good compressor and a tank. You can run your lockers off it when you get them and air up in the mean time.
Get a good battery or a dual setup if you have a sound system as well, the stock type gets killed from winching and lights.
The list that I've started is just in that order for sake of how I remembered it. As I see more things, I'll just add them to the bottom of the list.
Why Claytons instead of IRO? IF I go with Claytons and put it on the current axles, What would I have to change when I do the axle swap? In other words, Should I just wait and hold off on Lift til I have axles ready to go in at same time?
I've looked at the X-Jack and the Hi-Lift. As I see it, the XJack is only good for lifting your vehicle. Whereas, a Hi-Lift can lift vehicle, Spread metal, Keep your roof from collapsing(if stored inside and tilts up when you ROLL it.~ Saw on Youtube), and even Pull you out(SLOWLY) from that stuck spot. All this Without having to have compressed air, or the engine running. Course, I THINK the X-jack IS a hair lighter though.
I Really have to look into lights. I just remember looking tat the GoLights at the store a few years ago and REALLY liking them for their adjust-ability. For the rear, I have bookmarked the License Plate Lighs from a JY car. Gotta find the right car, and good lights for the conversion.
For Lockers, I'm thinking ARB. Definitely goin to put a Ford 8.8 in the rear. This will take some real time and energy to get right(and built).
Batteries: Definitely going Optima when this battery dies on me. Red or Yellow Top though. Also, at that time(or around it), I'll be putting in the dual battery setup and wiring this in. Have to look at Where I can put the 2nd battery... Though I DID see a place if I move the radiator overflow tank somewhere else. I'll be playing around with that. I know better than to have a sound system besides something that'll get radio on long drives. No need to kill my ears with ridiculous bass or number of speakers or amps. Basic Radio and the Factory 4 speaker setup works great(though IF I can find them, I might throw my good speakers in from when I was a kid. AMAZINGLY I didn't blow them then...) Course, the main reason for the Dual setup will be for Winching and Lighting.
After the "Adventure of Transmission Shop" early today, I still wonder what other gremlins I'll find while doing these upgrades.
