Time to swap the 35 for a 44.


I have a 4banger. I bold this information because it's important to remember And I'm currently running 31s on a 3 inch rough country lift with 4.11 gears. I've been considering swapping out the rough country lift for rubicon coils to lower the jeep to 2 inches. Which brings me to my question.

I won't have time to do the install myself (the dana 44 install) so I was looking at kits on Jeeps are us. Which is the best in your opinion? I do not plan on going beyond 31s. Here's the page with the choices


I'm completely new to this guys so let me know what I need (lockers, gear type, etc). And take into consideration that I live in miami (raining here a lot lately so I want to upgrade to the disc brakes in the rear)
