Is it possible for 37s?

If I have a 4" suspension lift, 1.25" body lift, and flat fenders for me to be able to run 37" baja claws with stock gears?

its possible. It might move, but not very fast at all.

you might have clearance, but you're going to hate life unless all your driving occurs down hill with a 20mph wind at your back.

I would not run 37s with stock gearing (or stock axles, steering, brakes,etc.)

i think tj's had two gear options 3:73 and 3:07. The 3:73 could be doable but it will be awful. the 3:07 i wouldnt even waste my time in.

Gears will suck. Brakes will suck. Steering will suck. Dont do it unless you do it right

Yeesh doesn't anybody read his profile? He already has 4.88s.

As for the axles i have my own opinion but just listen to everyone else.

Unless of course he is full of it...6 posts and already asking this stuff?

Ughhh you could fit 42"s with that much lift and flat fenders. I checked his build, but with a V8 "built for racing" and assuming all the axle shafts are "not at least alloy" I wouldn't do it................but based on the fact he asked about 37"s with STOCK gears I'm am going to say his specs are all "future mods"

will the tires fit = sure, you just need to set your bumpstop extension correctly.

will the gears work with 37s = sure, it will move.

a better question would be will the stock axles hold up to 37s, and the answer to that is definitely not.


anything is possible, but that doesn't mean it's a good idea.

Exactly..... people start posting not even knowing what gears he has or what transmission. Now if we're talking getting by for now on stock gearing... I sure wouldn't do it.

his profile says he has new gen d44's with 4.88's... also says he has a built 304... 37's should be ok however with a built motor good chance of breakin stuff. as for clearence you'll need some bumpstops but you have plenty of room

So which is it "stock" or 4:88's?

I wheeled 37's hard on a stock D30 and a mildly built D44 with 4:88's. If they are 3:73's, I wouldn't go above 33's til I regeared it!

Sometimes people start threads without providing pertinent information.

The responses are based on the confusion the OP has created.

If you go to his profile and see what other threads he has started, they all give off diff info about his jeep ... One thread says he has a 4" Zone lift and in his profile it says 4" fabtech ?...Then every thread he never replies in ?

This person has me confused
