I know they are Connor, was just trying to make a point for some happy viewers that different choices of axles aren't necessarily a whole lot cheaper or more expensive. I am a pretty firm believer in building it once for what you ultimately want to use it for though. Saves a ton of time and definitely some hard earned coin.

I understand you can build a jeep with tons. But what's it like throwing money at gas and not to mention the cost of the tires? Driving it everyday like that is a bigger cost then what Connor is trying to do. He wants it to be a drive there drive back. He got a smoking deal on tires and new front axle.

I don't have a parade to be rained on, Im just simply stating my opinions. DDing 40's is a little ridiculous and Art I don't think you would do it either. Add up all the cost and then see why Connor is building the way he is.

I understand it, and I love big jeeps and big tires. But sometimes you get another Jeep down the road. Art, you have two build jeeps, maybe Connor will do the same one day. .

Kinda derailing this, but roll 37's under said Jeep and milage is ok,and makes for a good riding, good wheelin, DD able Jeep. Is about as dual use for mild to wild as you can get. Connor carry on, you knopw what you want have fun building and wheelin

Tony (flatlander757) went straight to 40's and it kind of ruined it for him because he spent so much money on it and didn't get to drive it much. I think that well built 44's and 37's are a great combo. They are lighter, can fit in most garages and easier to get in and out. I bought a JK rear 44 cause I like the width, already has disk brakes, strong ring and pinion and tons of aftermarket support. I picked up a F-250 HP44 and just figuring out how to change it over to 5 x 5.5 lug.

Actually, I'm completely in support of this. I see the benefit of one-ton stuff, but there are also a host of good reasons to go with JK 44's...especially under a not-retardedly-heavy TJ.

The derailing is all the talk about what Connor should do, and not what he wants to do. Simple enough.

It's an on going debate with no clear answer, it all depends on your end goal, your access to mild to wild wheeling spots. Most Jeeping can be done on 33-35" tires. When you feel a need to go bigger because of where you like to wheel then go for it. Tony took a nice Jeep, hacked it up and went wild with it. While there were not many trails available to make it worth his while, nor did he have a truck and trailer to drag it around. A set of 37" tires to swap under there for mild stuff and street driving would have made that a more suitable affair. After my first Hammers run I knew I wanted to go back for more, yet didn't want to destroy my lil yellow Jeep doing so.
So on was the search for a totaled Jeep to start my project with.
Best darn choice I made, yes it cost money, but my hobby has been worth every penny/ dollar I have spend on it. The big thing about this Jeep building is to have the skill, time, money and patience to finish it.

Anyone interested in a 36" x .75" Currie sway bar? It's the bar used in the TJ/LJ front AR kits. I'll sell it for $80.

Only reason I'm selling is because I'm bumping up to a .85" bar to gain a little rate over the rear.

Pm me a price also if I had the time to cruise over to Indy I would have been able to get away in a while I could really use this

I'll be next in line if it gets that far. I'd love to have it. Shipping would be to 74055. If you're willing to ship that is.

PM'd so far......you all realize I'm selling just the bar, right? Not the arms, links, or frame pucks. Just the bar. All other components can be purchased from Currie.

The thicker the bar the more it limits flex. The Genright rear swaybar took just about a foot of flex away on Jay's jalopy

I'm aware. This won't limit my articulation, I promise Art.
