He was asked. I don't mind answer questions about my build or discussing things I'm doing, but I'll keep reporting the off topic chit chat. Nothing personal and I've specifically asked in reports that no one be reprimanded or anything since I know it's easy to get off on tangents.

Now I know. Feel free to delete this then. I just hadn't seen you ask is all.

Have you decided easy you are doing for the front? Or are you just leaving it as an hpd30?

I'll regear it to match obviously, but that's all I have planned for now. These axles as they'll be after the regear won't ever see a tire larger than a 33. When I go bigger than 33s, which won't be any time soon it'll be 37s and I'll upgrade the rear with a Super 88 kit. No idea about the front yet for that either and having to address steering isn't something I want to mess with anytime soon.

Though I feel like I've said that about half the stuff I've done to this build already.

My steering is almost scary with my jeep how it sits. If it's was me I would just mess with that. Once I get shows of someone with proper tools I will be. How much lift do you have approximately?

Is a super 88 kit similar to the super 35 kit that eliminates c clips?

2" now. Staying like that on the 33s, maybeeeee 3" but even 2" now seems like it's too much for the 33s for me. This was my real dilema with axles because I don't want to bother with 35s and 37s require too much money for me to invest in anytime soon. I could do Super kits on both the 30 and 8.8 and run them without upgrading the steering, but even that I'm looking at ~$1500 for the kits, plus regearing, plus $4-500 for going up to $300, plus $1200 or so for the tires, and another $4-500 in wheels since damn near nobody makes a 37 in a 15" wheel.

The Super35 we put in my uncle's TJ did not eliminate the c clips.

Honestly, I'd maybe go 35s but IMO 33s are perfect.

I really like 33s for your average build for the average wheeling most people on here will do, but long term this build isn't going to be average.

Small tires and low center of gravity don't mix and they definitely don't mix with what I'm planning on doing long term with the body on this thing.

There's not much you can do to the body though is there? Or are you going for the pinched nose look?

I guess I will haha.

I'm assuming when you say 2" of lifting too much for 33s you mean over factory and not saggy old crap? I had about 1/2 inch clearance on their rear wheels with my 33s before lift. 2 1/2 inches wouldn't be too much room to work with either...

I think you're over thinking it. First, Super kits are a waste of money. You won't break an 8.8 on stock shafts on 35's. a 30 spline upgrade on a 30 isn't worth it. By the time you put that much money into it, you might as well just do a 44 or 60. Beside, if you would break a 30 spline shaft on the trail, good luck finding a shaft. I know most will think my setup is far from ideal, but I have wheeled my setup HARD a lot, and I haven't broke but one 30 shaft. On 35's, HP30, and 8.25 29 spline, stock shafts, locked in both axles. This has been in mostly dry rock, and some in sloppy wet conditions, on rocks, hitting the rev limiter. I'm not knocking you, it's just that a lot of people way over think what they need to run 33's and 35's.

I was talking about the super kit for the 8.8 for 37s, not 35s. I doubt I use the 30 when I go to 37s. Got zero problem running 33s on what I have now and don't plan on ever running 35s.
