I had been reading and found out dana 35's are weak, so I decided to truss it.





The Jeep hit puberty, I could not stand 3.5" anymore. I then picked up a 2" BB, IRO Fixed Lower CA's, and adjustable uppers, and a new rear trackbar. I sold the 31's and got 33" Dueler AT Revos. 5.5" and 33's





With the 4.0 powerplant, I tried some stuff to get more horse. Like a cold air intake, and taking off the muffler.



Off to work now, will update later.

you could get a tire up there with a locker and nothing stacked?

Don't forget about releasing your power pack just after the secondary condenser goes off.
