alright, welding is definitely a possibility, i'll look into th lines. ive got a d35 rear axle, the 3 inch lift and 30's wont be to much stress will it?

31" tires are about the limit for a d35. IMO if you have junkyards near ya. Pick up a 8.25 from a 96-01 Xj. It'll bolt right in and have 29 spline axle shafts I beat on mine with 33's all the time. But the 8.25 will handle 35's in stock trim with out blinking.

At 3", the stock length LCA will be about .25" short.
This will have some minor impact on caster and pinion angles, but nothing drastic. Tires larger than stock will appear off-center within the wheel-well.

Brake lines need only have the anchor bracket relocated, but just be sure that they are not the limiting factor when flexing off-road!
