Pull the trigger on the arms. You do need a rear end though. Why did jeep even do a d35?

Because 99% of Jeeps don't need anything heavier than a 35.

Dude buy a locker. Those arms probably won't help you much off road. And you don't wheel hard enough to brake the stock ones. Especially up front where the locker will be. I only ever bent one up front on 35s. And I wasn't playing nice.

But buy what you want. If you are dieing for arms then get them.

and do you have a zj tie rod??

no doors, no top, no problems

I agree, buy a locker and replace stock arms as needed. Lockrights are stupid cheap right now.

Buy everything....I'm just the instigator. Hahaha

I snapped my upper fronts on 35s on the road once. While braking, wasn't a fun time.

Well see I'm still waiting on that guy to swap his axles so I can get his used Aussie for really cheap. But I don't know.

I'm just thinking about ride quality. But I guess I could get replacement arms, a ZJ tierod, and a new locker for the same if not less money than the arms.

I agree with them. Get a locker. I only bought arms to fix my ****ed up pinion.

Damn! Were they bent or anything before?


And i would put getting a zj tie rod first. You can bend the stock one just by steering if the driver side tire is in a bind. I've seen it done

no doors, no top, no problems

Pretty sure jake still has a ZJ tierod unless he sold it since I last talked to him. I'm gonna go ahead and get it with the replacement arms then get a new locker if the money still checks out.
