I'm not sure what your budget is but IF you decide to go with 35's you are going to need to address the stock brakes (Vanco kit) steering (Currie Curretlync) and it'd be a good idea to swap out the 30 up front especially if you plan on locking it.

On top of that you are going to need a re-gear, plus you're now talking tube fenders as well. That's many, many thousands of dollars in parts and labor. Just so ya know .

Why do you always feel the need to put me down.

Yea trust me I have my build all planned out and the short term (within the next year) is about 5k total for everything I want to do. I'm shipping to basic in April so my whole monetary situation is quickly going to change and my build should really take shape. I'm only going to cut up the stock fenders for the near future because I'm rubbing like crazy and my fenders are too messed up to resell anyway.

edit: and trust me I'm not planning on half assing anything...well except for my fenders for the next few months haha, but by this time next year, Andy, you better watch out because I'm pretty sure my TJ's gonna be able to walk all over yours, hahaha.

Hehe, oh believe me I have and will continue to encourage you to build it up to the sky . Quite an ambitious build. I'd love to get there someday but with as much as I've put into running 33's that's probably as high as I'll go.

Haha we'll see about that, correct me if I'm wrong but aren't you more or less already set up for 35's? I mean just shy of a Vanco kit....

Yea I am a very ambitious kind of guy , so we'll see how it turns out. I'm gonna need to learn quite a few skills along the way to get it where I want it but I'm pretty confident it will turn out well in the end, haha.

Hey! Don't encourage me!

Yeah, I'm pretty set for 35's with the exception of a D44 up front and the gears to comfortably run that size tire (and yes, the Vanco kit too).

I would definitely want to lock a 44 up front but the cost of the lockers + gears is prohibitive for me at this point. I guess when it's time for new tires we'll see where I'm at.

In the meantime I've been adding fun stuff like the Springtail Solutions M-PAC rack I just ordered this evening (in-depth writeup forthcoming) and next will be that ************* Co2 setup I've been drooling over forever.

Yea I've been itching for a Co2 setup and that rack looks awesome on the tailgate so I'm definitely interested to see that. Instead of the D44 we could both go hunting for HP30's and make a fun weekend out of installing them, haha.

Hey thanks. And as embarrassed as I am to say this I had it done. I would NOT recommend going that route, however. There are plenty of people in the area that would be more than happy to help you with the install for some pizza and maybe a few beers. Labor costs so much and it is nothing you couldn't handle in a weekend. However, if you really want to let a shop do it I had mine done at EVB (extreme vehicle builders), just run a search and you'll find their website. I did not have the best experience with them but yours might differ.

Is that Old Florida Road in the second post, going through the water? If not it looks very similar

love the OME setup with the 33"s... thats exactly what i'm throwing on mine at the end of the summer (or mid winter). Cant wait to sit a little higher. Looks very capable off road and love the look of the tube doors. Still trying to track down an OEM half door setup for mine.
