If this trade works out, I will be swapping for a Full bodied buggy basically. 98 TJ 4 linked f & R and lots of tube Last year I drove 300 miles I figure half at least were on trails. This is the 3rd R&P in a year, and I still want to hit the fun trails. Time to swap rather than cut this one up

Well I cant trade it. I hate the damn thing, but I have too much time and money invested to kick it out.

At this point i am torn. Cut back and do easier trails, or start gathering parts for an axle swap and stretch.

You could drop back to a tire that doesnt hook up quite as well , or build some one tons . After you fix the rear axle they will bring decent money when you sell them and that will put some of the one ton money back in the bank ,

The only thing you're doing different than the rest of us, unless you're a really abusive driver is running those Krawlers…… trade someone for some regular 35's, spin tires a little more, and be happy. That's my opinion. Your rig is sweet man. It's ready for a stretch and you'll fall back in love with it.

As others have suggested....ditch the krawlers for a lighter tire (Goodyear MTR). Those Krawlers are awesome no doubt but they dig and are very heavy.

Or keep the tires and upgrade axles.

If you were closer I'd probably consider the trade for those Krawlers. Always wanted to try those out.
