oh man, it was BRUTAL... we ended up on Bronco Buster, which didnt seem like such a big deal after rolling through Midnight Run. WELL... all 4 of our Jeeps ended up on their sides in a 4 foot deep hole... My cousins Rubi was literally vertical... once we got out of that trail, we had a blast, but the 4 hours it took us to get out of Bronco Buster was exhausting. Ill load pictures here in a bit after a shower and food.

So after an exhilerating weekend at Hidden Falls... I have definitely made up my mind about what Id eventually like to do to the WWK.

D44 or 8.8, used, whichever I can find for a better deal - $300-$500

Since im buying a rear end, more than likely ill need to change the gearing to match my front end, so I might as well regear the both ends and lock the back.
Regear from 4.10 to 4.88 + locker - $1500

Getting rid of that damn shovel!
Tummy Tuck (skid plate, SYE, CV shaft, UCA's, exhaust mod) - $1000

Since im changing my rear end, ill need new wheels to match new bolt pattern, and since im getting differnt wheels, I might as well go from 15" to 16" to accomodate bigger tires AND a larger back space, so I might as well get bigger tires.
Wheels - $150
33" Tires - $450

And after beating my Jeep up, Ill be armoring it up...
Front diff gaurd - $50- $100
LCA gaurds - $50
Engine/Tranny skid - $300

So worst case, $4000, but since all these things kind of work together, and as I change one, I have to change the other, it may be a bit before I get to do all this, but I believe that once I get this set-up, ill be a happy camper.


The JK's have a steering system gaurd that is pretty cool. I wonder if someone makes something like that fof the TJ... maybe a piece of steel that starts narrow at the top and mounts to the underside of the frame and widens as it goes down... I just dont know where it would mount on the lower end... oh well, a possible steering system upgrade may be in order, but not until I tear this one up.

Ford 8.8 is still 5x4.5 BP.....also assuming your looking for a tj d44 since you made no mention of ditching the lpd30,so why are new rims needed?

For some reason I was thinking that the 44 and the 8.8 had a 5x5 or 5.5 BP... that saves me a nice chunk of money for now... Id like to wheel bigger tires, but that can come much later if the BP is the same.

Thanks for the advice.

Yeah, I saw that last time I was up there... I have been trying to get ahold of the $200, so I can at least hold it until I can regear.
