fyi,
I also have a '01 sport (bought new) and it is has the factory D35 and 3.07 gears. I did not know about the d44 till after I bought it, so been careful on what mods I have done which is adding a 2" coil spacer, running 31's and put in Powertrack auto locker in rear. Has over 77K miles on it.

Just adding to the question if all sports came with D44 --- no.

enjoy your new Jeep!

I have a TJ with a 4 inch r/c lift and i'm about to get 33's for it. I ran 31*10.5*15's on my stock 3.07 gears and it lagged at times on hills. I upgraded my gears to 3.73 on the dana 35/30 axles. That puts you at the lower recommended rpm range. Here is a chart to go off of.

Jeep Horizons :: RPM vs Gear Ratio Chart

I personally don't like how body lifts look. I may do a slight body lift to compliment my suspension lift so that I can run 35" tires in the future.

Good luck, stay safe, and have fun!

Save your money and do it the way you want the first time. IMHO, If you go with budget builds, but really want a 4" sl and 33's, you will be disappointed and end up spending more in the first place....trust me, patience is the key when you are building a jeep.
Owning a jeep is an addiction, you really think "I can stop modding and wheeling any time- I can sell the jeep any time", but you can't. Hi- my name is Chris and I'm a jeepaholic.

Check out the reviews section for some good pointers. I got some 33" km2 tires and a 4" x flex rough country lift for my lj 2 months ago. Still testing it out but things are ok so far.

3in BDS springs up front, 2.25in spacers in back. Didn't need to extend bumpstops for 31s. When I go 33s I'll just rtv a couple hockey pucks in. Now that the springs settled it is exactly 7 inches from highest point of tire to the fender flare both front and rear
