Please quote my entire sentence, please do not erase the comma and the second half of the sentence and add a period.

That's taking things out of context.

You made it look like I said there is never a need to upgrade your steering.

Currie's setup is the best solution, some people run a ZJ tie rod, it's larger then a TJ's.

You stated "You don't need to upgrade the steering", I don't agree with that...

Did I say he had a 9" axle? No. I don't run a D44. I still state that if he upgrades the front brakes due to larger tires, he will benefit by upgrading the rear brakes also...

I have no problem with you disagreeing with anything at all, I want you to voice your opinion on everything, that's what the forum is all about, just please do not quote half of a sentence I write and add a period.

If you wheel a TJ with stock steering it's going to get beat up.

If you drive it on the street and baby it down the trails your going to be fine.

Would I rather he upgrade his steering? Yes

I didn't say, don't do it, it's a waste of money. I said if you wheel hard your going to have problems.

How should he upgrade the rear brakes? Are you saying better pads or?

That's for the people running D44's to work out. As stated, I don't run one.
If I ever do, I'll work on that...

FWIW I am running 35's on a D44 rear and a D30 front. No lift. I am running Metal Cloak Arched Tube Fenders, and rear corners however. I have not upgraded my steering or brakes yet, but plan to. I wheel every few weekends, but its mostly a daily driver.
