You don't have the wheelbase needed for a KluneV underdrive.

There's also a swap involving Dana 18 gears and Ford Bronco Dana 20 sliding gear to make a CJ Dana 20 have a 2.46 low range.

Ya I keep trying to tell him the drive shaft won't work but he keeps saying that the cv style drive shaft would work so now he's got me curious would it work?

With a T18 you're going to be pushing it even with a CV style shaft, especially if it's lifted enough for 35s. Add 6.5" inches of driveline length and you're past the limits of operating angles even with a CV shaft. It might work if you had a CJ7, but not with a CJ5.

Wheeling up at Walker is as you make it. There is bypasses on some of the harder stuff. The group of guys I go with has quite a bit of experience. We took a kid with a stock axle Cherokee on 31s with us and he made it with just a little body damage. I wheel my CJ open at both ends for a little more challenge. Sure, guys with lockers can muscle up stuff, but it takes driving skill to do it with out lockers. I always laugh at people who can't make an obstacle while locked front and rear, but I do it open. The best advice I could give is to put some rocker guards on your Jeep. Nothing that sticks out, but something you can put the Jeep on a rock and pivot around. Lockers always help, as do good tires. The terrain there goes from mud to rocks, on any trail. I like my BFG Mud Terrain KMs. I usually air down to about 10psi.

Guys with lockers were having all sorts of issues on this one. I walked right up it.

I'm running 33s. No damage to the Jeep, just the pride of the JK owners....
