Power level of these years and more if a auto, gear changes are in most cases a must. at 35"s for sure.
4d do need more lift and tire to not do the beached whale. Its a very long wheel base and the belly hanges down about 3 inches from the rails.
The skid for the tank on all Jk's gets a real work out.
Thanks. I wasn't aware 07/08 had oil burning issues. I know the engine is a dog , especially with bigger tires. Ill have it re geared by Pyle brothers in houston as they do great work.
After reading about rub icons having an insanely low ratio in the t-case, that may not be the way I want to go...
Maybe a Sahara 09,then to get away from oil issues and keep cost reasonable? I will take it off road once a month or so and it will get a mild workout so I'm guessing ill have to go 35s with the long wheelbase...
Reasonable prices for an 09 Sahara hard top with under 45k would be what?
