I thought about upgraded shafts, but I dont want the weak point being my R&P. Im upgrading the rears, those are what are bent right now. Thinking about going with the G2 ones and having 4wp press the bearings in and install them.

Is this your DD? With the 5.13's? How does it drive with the 5.13's? I'm looking at an 08 JKU X with 4.10's and 35's but want 37's and Im not sure how a jeep with 5.13's would drive daily

Yep, I really dont mind. I know ill go bigger so the 5.13 was a good choice for me. I have enough power, city driving is nice, passing on the freeway is good, and i can haul 5 people no problem. I would say 4.88 if your sticking with 35's though. Sometimes the RPMs are a bit much for going 70+

Was perfect weather yesterday so went out the barn and enjoyed the sunshine. Jeep was looking nice so I snagged a picture



Also decided to move the antenna to the back, i hate having to remove the antenna just so i can go into those mall parking garages (I do that all the time)
