2006 Tj DD/ shooting for 35's or 37's

OK to get started i guess i should give some back ground. I bought my current Jeep in May of 2011 and since then I havent added any major mods to it, although im starting to collect parts to add on it. before i bought this this i had a 2002 tj 4 cyl 5 speed, I bought this one b.c I was selling cars a the time and my car lot traded for this one it only had 18k miles on it and was alot nicer then the 2002 and it was a 4.0l. So I bought it! Sold my old one and havent looked back. I have wheeled it in its current state mainly at Superlift in Hot Springs ar, it does good but I dont take it on many level 3 trails. my goal is to run 35's or 37's and be able to take any level 3 and do good on level 4 trails.

So what I have waiting to go on my jeep is: ZJ tie rod, Wj rear sway bar end links for front disco's, Yj brake lines, and 3" front BDS coils. Im on 33" tires right now w/ 3.73 gearing its not bad except sometimes on the highway It feels weird, im planing on reagearing to 4.88 and swaping in a hp D30 and a Ford 8.8 Rear, I dont want anymore lift except a 1" BL. I like the whole LCOG idea, I plan on running tube fender so I can fit bigger tires and still have some flex. For the time being I dont plan on changing the rear suspention any the 2" pucks are fine Ill probaly upgrade the shocks but thats it.

Not trying to be an *** or anything. But if you knew how to drive better... You could
Walk through those trails they way your jeep is now

My suggestion. Just spend alot more time on the trails and learning the way things are. And RESEARCH! You don't need 37's nor 35's to do what the video clips showed. A better line and it would have been like it was not even there

X2.... I have ran trails a lot harder than those with 31's and a locker. Never had a problem.

Air down, get a front locker, and some real sliders
