Tons are expensive for sure, but it is not really different when you consider that the maintenance on them is a lot less than "car" axles since they don't break nearly as easy...the cost is just all up front rather than every month you break them haha
I was thinking flanges for less expense, lower profile with my high BS wheels, and stronger. Is there any reason to run a lock out over a drive flange besides a little less drivetrain drag on the street? I'm hoping all the cash will be worth it. I would like to be able to wheel hard and not worry about breaking on the trail.

I'm not finding people who are running 40" tires with a "narrow" (less than 80") track width. I'm not sure I could do a 40 and not get into the frame or links and keep it at 80". Plus, if I did 40's, I would high line it front and rear and go with about 2-3" lift. That would also mean I would buy a AEV hood ($$$$) because I wasn't happy with how my cut hood came out on the beast. Still haven't totally ruled it out but I need to see some pictures of it working. Plus, 40" tires are $500 more for a set of 4.

Yup, I sure hope so! The 05+ stuff is even beefier but parts are a little harder to get. I'm sure the 02-04 will be plenty stout though.

Thanks!

Made my first purchase for the build. 1" Brown dog motor mounts and 1.25" Savvy body lift.

Should be picking up the axles this weekend.

About to pull the trigger on a winch bumper. Any good reason I should pay $200 more for this



Over this?



I like the location of the PS shackle mounts over the JCR but I'm not sure If it's worth the extra cash. I would probably add a bar to the JCR one.

Schweet. Beautiful LJ. My vote is JCR, but why not build your own?

My press brake isn't wide enough to bend something bumper width. I could weld it and flap disk it down, but I don't think I would be happy with the way it looked.

I don't know how much the JCR is... but I think if you like that style it would be hard to beat the Barnes4wd Bumper @ $185 shipped. It looks very similar

I forgot all about that one... Hmm..

I just stumbled upon this one. Just shot up to first place in the winch bumper runnings.

That jeep pictured had no steering box

Oh.. Duh. Forgive my blonde moment. You would think they would mention that on their web page for people asleep at the wheel like me!

Doesn't work with a sway bar either. So it's pretty much a full hydro / ORI setup bumper. I love the way it's recessed in the frame though. I still can't believe I forgot the steering box was RIGHT THERE. I was like "I can't believe no one else has a bumper like this". For a good reason....

Anyway, Barnes 4WD bumper ordered up. Thanks for the heads up.

Yeah, I was thinking hard about that bumper until I realized how much work it would take to run it. The Barnes unit is nice, though; I may very well go that way myself.

I think one could still run that UCF bumper....

JK steering box and a crossmember for the sway bar right behind the winch and through both frame rails, of course. It'd definitely take some work.

Fun to think about.....
