OK, so, here's my question; I own an '04 WJ, bear with me here, I've wheeled it for a couple of years on a 2.75" lift and 32s. Last winter, I snapped a rear shaft (D44 aluminum rear end with an Aussie lunchbox locker) and decided it was time to move on with a better drivetrain.
At the time, the JK rubi 44s could be still had for cheap, so I decided to go that route with the intention of running 35s after going to a 6" LA lift; yes, fenders will be cut .
The past couple of months, I've been working on the axles to get them ready to mount under my dubjay; now the front is done (did the EVO gussets/skids and sleeves, as well as a RK truss) with the exception of gears. The rear will be trussed and eventually, will chromolly both F and R.
The WJ is obviously a heavy Jeep, but I'm sure not incredibly more than a 4 door JK (I may be wrong there though ); so for those of you (particularly 4 door JK owners) who have run 35s and then moved to 37s, did you suddenly find yourselves breaking down at the trail all the time?
I know that's a very generic question, but just trying to gauge some concepts that my help me decide whether I ought to stick to 35s or go all the way and get 37s and "be done with it"
FWIW, I think the KM2s do run a little smaller then other MTs .
