Alrighty. The plan. Save up money and order parts as I can. BL MML Drive shaft 35's. Knock it out all in a weekend or two. Last night I ordered rampage frameless soft top. Currie rock ribs look alikes.

quoted for truth...great advice. Wheel it before spending a ton of cash.

Nice rubi, it looks like my Rubis younger bro. First off congrats on the new jeep it is an awesome platform to build off of. I wanted to chime in and see if I can add anything that may help you in your build and avoid spending money foolishly.

If your heart is set on 35s and thats what you want then go for it. Save and plan accordingly and you will be fine. A body lift and mml really arent neccessary until you do a tummy tuck so Id hold off on that until you plan the tuck. My biggest recommendation is if you get 35s upgrade your steering at the same time. Your 3 or 4in lift will be fine for the time being to fit the tires so focus on reliability.

Did you purchase the rockers yet? I had the currie rock ribz and Im not a fan because they dont go all the way up under the door. Also what tires are you considering?

Any questions shoot me a PM, good luck

Thanks angryTj I've been crawling your build thread and yeah it looks like our jeeps were separated at birth. I was planning on doing the tuck along with it. And pretty sure on the MTR/K's. Kevin invited me over to Jeep Forum Wheelers so can't wait to go wheeling with you guys. No where local to wheel around here

Yeah man Rausch is a really fun place to wheel. MTR/Ks are where its at but they've been national backorder for months now.

I didnt get your answer, did you order rocker guards yet? If not take a look at rokmen sliders that go wheel well to wheel well. A to Z are nice too but not sure if those are flare to flare.

Take a look at the currie steering setup as well. I bashed mine on a bunch of rocks this past weekend and no damage at all, the stock setup would have folded completely.

Damn just saw your post. Got a set of smittybilt xrc rocker guards with step. Hope they will work out. If not I'll return them if possible and go with your suggestion.

People tend to say that smittybilt stuff is low quality and some of it probably is but I've always had pretty good luck with what I've bought from them.

Hope they work out for you!

Ok. Update. Rampage frameless soft top is on back order. My rocker guards, header channel, door surrounds, and tailgate channel are all shipped and should be here any day. Got rid of the temp tags tonight for some MD tags. Going to get firemens association tags. But I have to apply for them. Thinking about just saving and money and moving up to 33's for a while. Thinking Mickey Thompson classic wheels. 15x8 and Goodyear wrangler MTRK's 33/12.5/15.

Don't jump the gun. You might be able to do 35's without much work. Keep researching.

So many decisions. You guys suck. Lol. Bad influences. All I've been doing is researching. I fall asleep every night with my laptop on my lap in bed. Should I just do BL MML Tummy Tuck and 35's? And HD steering?

You change your mind everyday lol... chilllll man. There is no shot clock here. You've got some parts on the way. Install them when they get there. Just keep reading and looking at build threads and picture threads. You obviously don't know what you want yet so just hold out til you do. It sounds like you want 35's.
-Come up with a plan.(But please take time in doing so lol)
-Execute said plan as time and money allow.
-Win.

Trust me, the longer you hold out, the better idea you will have on how you want to modify your Jeep. It will save you money and time blah blah blah.

Looks good. But don't even worry about the steering until you start getting into rocks. It will give you $500 to use elsewhere on your build.

You will know when you need a beefier steering setup. Until then stock will be fine.
