You like the YJ best? We have had a XJ, YJ, (2) TJ, and a JK. I think I like the TJ best for the over all jeep experience.img_0650.jpg

I looked at a ton and this was the best. Worked late into Friday night to get the lift installed.

Looks great !!
What are the chances that your Sahara came with better gearing than 3.07 or maybe even a D44 ?

These tires are AT and nto very aggressive. Ill go with something a little more aggressive later. Not sure exactly which axle / gear combo I have. How would this be verified? I cross checked the Vin and it check out to be a factory sahara

This jeep isnt a daily driver but sees more pavement than off road.

There are threads that explain the differences in rear differentials with pictures, and there should be a tag attached to one of the bolts on the diff cover with numbers on it that will tell you the gearing it came with from the factory.....as long as it hasn't been altered
