Just finished building my jeep last fall (suspension wise) haven't really had a chance to take her out. Don't really know allot of trails in my area or people to go wheeling with. Been looking into clubs but not sure if I want to join yet.
I'm located in middleboro ma near Plymouth
My ride is a 97 tj with a 6" long arm lift riding on 35" tires. Stock Dana 30/35 with 4:10 gears, eng and drive line is brand new.
If I were you I would look for a Ford 8.8 or Dana 44 for the rear and add a rear locker. open diffs would get you to far but if you lock that Dana 35 you will blow it up and will not be able to drive it.
