I check this like every other day... very tasteful mods. What are you doing to support the 35's? Breaks, gearing, etc.?


Maintain, wheel, upgrade, repeat.

Brakes are still stock. I was originally planning to only run them for a few days, but I've yet to notice any major performance drops. I engine brake at every stop and I have a feeling that is why.
Gearing is staying at 3.73 for now. It will change when I start my 1-ton drive-line. I am also considering doing 30 spline superior axle shafts and a 30 spline Eaton e-locker and going down to 4.56. Superior super-30 kit up front and same locker. That way I can avoid having to do ****-tons of custom fab work while I am still at my parents house.
I'm going to be replacing all control arms with arms with JJ's at both ends.

Dang you have got ambitions. I wish I had that kind of money on tap. All I have is a summer Lifeguarding job @ $8 an hour. Made a grand total of 2.5 grand last year. It is looking good!

Exactly. Plus you get that ~$13,000. I did get 40+ hours a week but the bastards at the city wouldnt pay the overtime rate even though they often scheduled me nearly 50 hours a week. Technically thats illegal but if you tried to fight it, you would get fired. They piss me off lol.

Personally liked the rims before. Something about stock wheel painted black that just doesnt look right.

either way, nice jeep. Wish mine could have been like that in high school

all the wheelers were jealous when i put on 31s with no lift

What control arms are you going with? Are you getting all 8 at once? I plan on doing this but I don't have a grand to throw around. Should i go with lowers first?

The ones savvy sells on their site. My rears will be made by me, JJs at both ends. I'm no expert on the stock suspension, but I would replace the ones that limit flex the most.

After the SAT test on Saturday I'm going to cycle my suspension to make sure my bumpstops are set right, then I'm ready for some B-day wheeling.
