I am in Westchester County, so not to far from either of you guys. We also have a cherokee that just got a 4.5 LA kit with 31s done and doing a 87 k5 blazer on 44s. We mainly build go fast cars on the side but decided to go for some offroad builds this time around and I am hooked on jeeps.

Well I have 35x12.5x15s off my wrecked YJ and have been toying with the idea of getting some steelies to mount them on the LJ. I really wanted to go with some 33x12.5x15s on aluminum wheels but since they are sitting at the house I may do it as a temporary thing. What do you guys think?

Yea I think I might just order the steelies and use them for the time being. With the 3.73 and 6 sod it shouldn't be that bad.

This is going to be one awesome build. When you get a chance you need to run it passed my house after doing some work. I think the 35"s will be awesome. They are supposed to fit with tube fenders. I think you should consider running a 1"or 1.25" bl though. If you wait for Savvy to release thier TT, it will be lighter than any on the market, get you 4" of clearance, and will provide that needed BL. That extra 4" will get you massive amounts of clearance. I believe stock is 12" at the belly. 35" = 3", Savvy TT = 4". That is 7", with no lift. Don't forget the SYE/DS, and regear.

I can't wait to see that thing get lined too. Are you going to do the inside and outside. I am convinced if you spray the stuff that you can get it glassy smooth.

This is a nice to to subscride, bump, and crawl. I can't wait to see the progress.

Edit: I see you have the delicious NY rust. Are you going to do anything to take care of that?

yea i have been watching the savvy TT and am very interested...i think it will go perfect with what i want out of this rig. i have a sye from the wrecked YJ and would just order up a DS. I will likely only do the inside tub area but who knows...

go as high as you can, get the 4.88. 5.13 would probably be better for 35"s, but 4.88 isn't bad, and you can get the 5.13s in a d30 unless you find a set from the very limited run. Why go for it at 24k? Is that what the service manual says following the PO schedule? I am either going to do mine with my next oil change at 20k (500 miles away) or hold off till 25k. I have my oil owrking on a nice and easy 5K schedule, and it still comes out lightly golden. Must be this nice clean NY air (not).
