Well Bud, once again being totally honest, my rig is built for snow, mild trails for hunting and fishing and 90% DD on the highway. Total build including 5 tires and wheels under $5000. It's pretty much been this way for almost 5 years. No issues. So, you can spend $10G and make a rock crawler go anywhere rig that may not be as good on road or keep down on the budget and make a stable DD that will get you in more places then most people dream of.

I have the RK 3.5" X-Factor Pro lift and have been running the stock driveshafts for almost 2 years/30K miles now without any vibrations or issues.
I really don't do any "heavy" wheeling. Mostly sand beaches and forest trails so far. Running 315/75/16 (34")tires. Rides decent. The 4.10 gears still work pretty good, doubt I'll re-gear it.
