37s were as big as I ever got before I retired it from everyday service.

Here is something for the high diff clearance crowd, which axle is under which Jeep and what has more clearance.
Did some measuring today and thought this was interesting

35" tires versus 37" tires, all at 30 psi. Stock axles versus versus D60 HP and 14 bolt. Which is which? Where is the diff clearance advantage?









Y'all tell me where the big advantage of weaker axles with less gearing choices is?

I think it is because it is too "in between". It is beat up like a trail only rig and the trans problems and other things make it hard to be a daily driver. If it doesn't sell then I may just hold on to it until I can afford to upgrade it later.

So a RHD TJ has never won TJOTM. as you try to change that and be first one to bring home the win.
