i would think the 2.4 even with 5.xx gears and 37s would make you hate your life. but i may be wrong...

The 2.5/AX5, 5.86's, and 37's actually looks like a decent combo. Running 2950rpm at 65mph, crawl ratio is 62.5:1...etc. Seems pretty decent IMO.

I would be more worried with that ax5 and deep gears with big tires imho.

Eh even geared that deep, I don't see the 2.5 making enough torque to break it.

Bouncing with sudden traction through a rock garden or up a steep hill will find the weak link in the drivetrain. AX5 cases do crack open under those circumstances.

For a 2.5 or 2.4 TJ, a good swap is an AX15 with a Klune behind it, and relocate the engine forward the length of the Klune.

Bouncing with any drivevtrian is a bad idea. The 2.5 is awesome for this very issue. 2.5....you either get traction or stall

Thanks a lot! It is relatively clean, I hope to keep it that way.Its kindof tough to balance keeping it clean and wheeling it though.

Stability, simplicity and budget. If I were to build another, I'd probably put leafs in the rear again.

Thank you! Running only about 3" of lift, you'll need to extend your bump stops. I plan on building some high fenders so I can ditch some bump stop up front. There are a lot of pictures in my build thread. There's a link to it under my post.
