some questions; what axles do you have, what gear ratios, only 3 inches ()
so 35's is technically possible on 3.5 inches? How much/ and where does it rub now?
also what are some strength issues that HAVE to be addressed before 35?

I'm lower than 3.5 after that jumping stunt more like 3. Bronco 44 8.25 29 spline rear 4.56s barely any rubbing except on the inner fender wells. I'm bump stopped perfectly minus needing to add a half inch to allow me to get off the inner fender well and turn at full stuff.

Strength well depends on the rig. 8.25 minimum rear axle 29 spline will work awesome! Mines been beaten like a red headed step child that owed me money. I have a Dana 44 with chromos so no worry on the axles other than the hub/u joint. On a dirty thirty replaces the weak spiders with a Aussie if your staying stock gears other wise go full case.

Steering/trackbar is next go with a quality (RUFFSTUFF COUGH COUGH) kit. Stiffeners are a must mine will be here soon.
Iro has an awesome double shear track bar.
Brakes. Depends on what you do with your jeep. (44 big brakes no prob)

Last but not least carry a spare set of axle shafts.

You know how much uptravel you have? That "lowlife" is nice but my rear could definitely use some extra uptravel at times, and thats sitting at just over 4".


Looks like your 44 could stand to be pushed forward a bit too. And for ****s sake slice an angle into that bumper or something you backwoods CT *****bait. .!..!.

I run a cut down tailpipe section that goes over the axle and exits at a 45* angle between the fuel tank and tire. Keeps it protected from damage but still pretty quiet in the cab.
