Will do I ran 35" boggers on a 91 YJ with 4.56 gears when I was younger and loved the amount of power it had.
The boggers measured 35 to 35.2" the yoko's measure 36.5"
I am expecting it to run strong.
But will post an update.



btw still waiting to get it back the exhaust shop is getting thier *** kicked by the Teraflex long arm. I am being told tomorrow.

Looks effin sweet my friend! I understand what you mean about life making it impossible to work on the Jeep. I had my lift installed by a friend in his shop because I bought it in January that year, we had 3 feet of snow on the ground, and I had no garage.

Sweet build! I wish you were a lot closer, I really need a passenger fender and it's nice that our rubi's are the same color. Saves me from painting. But anyways, hit some trails and take some pics!

Thanks again guys, and I am sure you'll understand the following.
90% of the stuff I had installed is not visible, but will make all the differance in the world.
I can't wait to get it back this afternoon!
FINGERS CROSSED!
I'll snap some pic of the dual Odyeseey battery set up and so on I am still shocked the tech got them under the hood.

No worries.
Total labor will be right about 6.8k.

High yes! but worth not losing the entire summer to late nights, angry wife, missed time with my son's, and animals? Hell yeah!

As I stated above I know (list is already growing) there will be future mods.
I'll have all the time consuming stuff done.

Freshly bathed............

The shop is done short of things I am not happy with which are all minor.

I also bought the two gallon Monstaliner kit and am coating the T&T fenders, FF sliders, and FF front and rear bumper tomorrow, so I will snap a pick or two of how it looks after the liner is installed.













I am really wanting to get the Monstaliner done................
.........anyway I'll get it done tomorrow.

I'm kinda curious why you went with the geolanders. All the reviews I've heard on them are terrible. Nice rubi by the way.

I am liking the 4.88's though feeling like I should have done 5.13's.
My intention was to run 35" just decided to run 37" ers.

It will still smoke the 37's so it's not a lack of power at all it the RPM I wish where a little higher while on the highway.

I am getting 15.7 mpg's around town so that's good as well even while running
high test fuel.

I like the geolanders they have an aggressive tread and don't sound like it.
I am 36 and haul my son around and getting a 6 year old to talk over tire's and exhaust is no fun at all.

I did away with the stock lockers one for strength, two for flexibility in use.
I can lock both or one rear as needed, in 4H or 4L.

I also used yukon gears and chromoly axles front and rear.
