My boss's jk have 37s, posi and 5.13s and has never had a hiccup with it at all.

Or just go 14 bolt

14 bolt front? That would be quite the anchor. I'd have to move up from 35's just so it's not hitting speed bumps haha.

Honestly I wish I would have skipped the Dana 44 and gone straight to a 14 bolt rear but with free gears and chromos for my axle it is hard to beat.

30 front and 14 rear 14 bolt front 44 rear!

Cheap/free is good. Greg's doing all this work for free! Just gotta supply the coors. World class coors, not even light.

Haha. Neither of those will be an option. It will either be 44's front and rear or 14 bolt rear with either a 44 or 60 in the front. And you can't beat cheap or free. Me and my buddy are going halves on a welder and plasma cutter coming up soon so planning to do all the work myself.

Seriously contemplating getting rid of the jk44 now....wonder what I could get for it

I didnt get past arithmetic, subtractions....lol....$15...?

I just rebuilt by D44a gears, seals, bearings and auto locker...and that junk is leaking already.

What gearing? Detroit in the rear? Ready to bolt up and replace my d44a? The detroid will complement my ARB in the front.

Where is your build thread?

I would definately consider it if you are serious but, it will have to be after my stroker build is complete. Maybe we can work someting out in the near future.

This is the link on the classifieds I just posted. Welding all done professionally and gears and axles being done in the next few weeks professionally as well. If you are seriously interested PM me and we can work out a price.

Pretty sure we just stole precious room on Marc's build. Hopefully he understands its for a good cause.

You need to checkout ericXJ - he did it too but built a box around the tank - a lot cheaper than a fuel cell - unless you want to increase capacity ?

Old axles. If anybody needs anything, pm me. I have an add in the classified section.





Locker situation figured out. Gears in





Had a funny time getting 2 of my 37s to work to swap Beadlocks. I have a 10" sub which made it more interesting. One completely fit in through the trunk, second one didn't...... Hahah.
