YJ build

whats up guys. about to start my first build. need some opinions/advice.

I've got a 95 Sahara edition.

looking into a Rocky Road Outfitters 6.5in SOA lift and put it on 37's. I don't want to go spring over because I don't have the money for it and I don't want to use a bolt on Pro Comp. has anybody heard anything about these lifts?

going to throw 4.88 gears front and rear with a Spartan locker in the front (Dana 30) and limited slip (im not sure what brand since I don't know a lot about limited slip) in the rear (D 35C).

any tips or certain parts that I should buy or not buy? thanks in advance for the help.

Little confused by this statement, first you say you are looking at a 6.5" SOA. Then you say you don't want to go spring over. Is your statement about the manufacture?

You say you want 37" tires, if so your factory axles are not going holdup if you do more than cruise the burger stand and mall parking lot.

sorry I meant I do not want to do a coil over. but yes the statement is about the manufacture. are they a decent company, do they make a decent product, etc...


37's are my final goal. I would prefer them however I would run 35's if that means I don't have to change the axles.

put an 8.8 in the budget if you plan on wheeling with your 35" tires.

35's would be the limit for even a Dana 44 axle, would not wheel with anything over 31's with factory axles unless it's a Rubicon with the Dana 44 axle. 37's your getting into Dana 60/1 ton areas.

ive got 31's right now and they aren't big enough for what I want to do. ive been looking into D44's new and used but cant seem to find a reasonable price on a set anywhere.

Best bet is to look for a junk truck with the axles you want. That's how I got my 1977 Wagoneer Dana 44 front axle for $27. Found one that was toast, bought it cheap, sold off some parts and scrapped the rest.
