My dad's first jeep was a cj-5; I'd love to have an old jeep too at some point

Lol... Yeah it doesn't sound like much. It started at 80in. Besides, I won't need cutting brakes. For what i'm wheelin on it should be okay, snow, sand, moderate trails.

Here is my latest project that I have going on... Moving from 35s and 3" of lift, to 37s and 3" of lift, jk rubi 44s front and rear, sleeved and gussets, 5:13 gears, atlas2, teraflex triangulated rear suspension. Stock wheelbase.

This just a mock up of what it will look like when I'm done.

Agreed! I went back and forth on D60s and I feel this is the best option for my use. The JK Rubi 44s are beefy as hell!

How much did you pick the axles up for if you don't mind me asking?

They are out of a 2014 Rubicon and they only had about 200 miles on them. I picked them up for $3500.00 for everything except the rear brakes.

I sold my old Dana 44 and Dana 30 for $2750.00 (they were both well built), and I also had a Dana 60 rear that was built that I sold for 1600.00, so I was able to justify the cost.

The worst part about doing this swap is spending the 600 or 700 buck on damn brackets!! End result is well worth it though

Newman,

I don't know if it's my PC or what, but I am having a hard time telling what type of side panels are in your Defenders.. To me they somewhat look perforated, but are they simply blank aluminum?

Thanks.
