I always wondered about the name though. It doesn't have an obvious reference, that I'm aware of, relating to any of the typical subjects of discourse: beer, boobs, Fallout, etc.
hahah well I work in the medical field so my first connection was of course medical If only I could have bearded awesomness at work...

Thanks for the advice Sundowner and I meant to say $1800 right this second Also, in my my research I noticed alot of controversy in a regear of the d35 compared to just getting rid of it. Any thoughts?

And Suspiciously Named Girly Things Kit soon?!?

Sundowner=Top Gun reference?

You can have cheap, and you can have quality, but you can't have both!

If you can upgrade - upgrayedd - for cheap...do it. The D35 is okay, but it's nothing spectacular and it doesn't have the best reputation. An 8.8 or a 44 would be nice, pending that you can get one that's set up for a TJ. If it was me, I'd regear the 35 now and drive it while I built a better axle; that would get me wheeling quicker and it would spread out the financial load over a longer period of time.

Negative, Ghost Rider; the pattern is full.

Most people seem to have the assumption that it is pronounced Sun-downer but what if it was pronounced Sund-owner. Do you own a Sund?

If I may interject, having recently gotten rid of the 3.07s while also on 33s, go gears first. The difference is monumental.

As far as our leaders name: Marshalls brewery here in Tulsa makes a wonderfully tasty Sundown Wheat....

ALCON,
A hair off topic or should i say it is a topic referenced very early in this thread. VANCO 16" Big Brake Kit w/ Black Magic Pads I am being told by the good folks at Savy are out of production indefinetly. BUMMER!!!

That sigh of disapointment out, and moving forward. Anyone have any ideas on a comparable audible option?

I am looking at upgrading the stock shafts and breaks on my 06 LJ Rubi, and being as I like to do it right the first time leaving future options available without having to re-work a previous project. I intend to keep the factory 16" MOABs. No further lifting is in my futurebeyond My current set up. Maybe some 35's though.

Obviously I am stuck back at square 1 in the planning of this little project with the VANCO Kit's being no longer available.

Best Regards,
Dale

If this is true I'm sad and pissed at the same time.

Sound advice; the 3.07 gears just aren't good for much of anything. I think that would probably be my first big-money purchase, but I'd still want some better brakes and steering to show up at the first available opportunity. Steering is something I've yet to address, myself, and it needs to happen soon.

I've never been to Tulsa, but that's a good reason to go.

Yes, the Vanco stuff is starting to be seriously limited in its availability; I'd have to do some research on what would be the next-best option.

Get ready to be sad and pissed, then. I think I heard something about issues with the machine shop that was doing the knuckles.
