Changed my axles, reinforced the "frame", all custom steering, and so on

3" and 31s to 6.5" and 35s? Get out your checkbook...

-new tires
-beefy steering
-SYE and driveshaft
-re-gear both axles
-might as well do lockers while you're in there, at least the rear
-hope your new kit has longarms (and hope its not IRO lol)
-upgrade the brakes someone (new pads and rotors up front at least, rebuild drums or disc swap in rear)

All I can think of right now. It's a lotta dough for a street rig IMO. Reason you can't find many setups like this is people usually get flamed for it haha.

Why?
Do you know what he wants to do with it?
His money, his rig, his choice IMO.
So long as he does it right, no problems here....

I have had my rigs at diffrent stages of builds... IMO the best setup I had for wheeling/DD was 4.5inch of lift and 31s with 4.56s locked. I didnt end up breaking everything putting stuff in to much of a bind having to upgrade EVERYTHING to make it golden. I could go anywhere I wanted without trying to much crazyness. Indeed it is his money rig and all that good stuff I was just saying

you're gonna need more than just the suspension when you get that big. you are definitely gonna need to upgrade the brakes to be able to stop the 35's. maybe new/beefier steering. i would get long arms cause short arms are gonna ride horribly

I daily drove both my xj with 7inches of lift with 35x15.50x15 wide swampers, and now I daily drive 7.5inches with 33 A/Ts , 36's for playing of course. Either way, even when I daily drove the balloon tires I still had no problems, and I drove about 250 miles a week or so, wheeled 2-3 times a week. I also have alot of upgrades tho.. but stock gears .
