Dude.......rear JK 44......nuff said.....or Dana 44's front and rear, but thats way too expensive. Slap one in the rear, (lol) I think its stock with 4.10 gears, maybe 4.56's. And you can get an electronic locker.

So, save up two grand, and only have to regear the front. So simple hahaha.

I like it. Makes me wish Id a bought a WJ...LOL

Ill vote for you...

I wouldnt be running them KM2s on road at 40 psi though. Thats up there for that big of a tire. Itll ride and proably wear better at around 30-32.

And I wouldnt worry about airing down til you got to around 10. Even with 17s. In that video your sidewalls aitn budging much at all so air em til they start to fold and really grip the rocks. Itll be a whole new Jeep then. For sure...

ha ha yeah i can't decide, make a mud flap bar that sticks in the hitch or tape some onto the inside of my back fenders so they hang down far enough lol it's just for a picture the inspector has to take. He's a good buddy with a built cj but still needs a pic.

PSI.. 40 has been nice on road.. but tomorrow i'll drop it down to 32 like zjones said and see if it rides better.. and yes i'm going to at least 15 next time i go offroad.. that video is horrible lol.. ha ha..

as for axle shafts.. not one problem so far.. I even do doughnuts like crazy in mud and snow in 4 wheel and no problems..

I think you should skip the dana 44 phase and go straight to dana 60's, 40 inch tires, and coilovers.

ha ha thanks. they are hard to see a lot of the time. but they are kinda reflective at night in the light. I had to remove my 4x4 badges to put them on. if people need a 4x4 badge to know it's a 4x4 than they can continue driving their toyotas
