Well have you ever heard of the story where you go to the store and someone’s like hey I’ll buy your jeep and you throw out a number and they say sure, well it happened so I said bye bye tj lol
And the badge thing is by jeep you run a trail and send pics via the badge of honor app and they will send you a little badge thing saying what trail it was. It’s pretty cool and free

think he is think of the Jeep logo thing where you run a trail you pay for a badge that has kinda the look of the trail rated Jk thing. metal. Never seen any on tj? If they take your money then i would think you could put it on a prius. its GPS location too. Unless the area has issues, like gps phones are out of data range etc.. I heard on the Rubicon you can just go to the dealer in Tahoe. i guess they figure you went that far. But just having the badge dont mean you took the hard way as well. just got back from there last week. they make a badge for Dusy ,Fordyce, Moab. just sends your money.
If those are stock axles? yea 37s can break things even on JkR d44s that are a bit stronger. even if you put in chromoly the front u joint is the fuse most times. so if you run harder trail( seems to vary what is too) out west we have so many great hard trails. bending a rear flange is not uncommon as well. Much of that is running trail you need 37 locked or dont go. not that 35s locked would not make it in the right hands. But its going to be very hard on the belly you will do a ton of grinding.
what gears does it have? i mean 37s 4.0 should be have some deep gears or it wont move. 35s tend to be 5.13/38s? in a tj? there are better guys here to say. it depend somewhat on trans only since that 42le makes gearing a deep gear on any tire really.

|Taylorfoy||That’s goood to know! I don’t plan on doing anything super crazy I just want to get that badge from uwharrie lol|

You can do anything at Uwharrie with 35's and one locker. Daniel, Dickey Bell and Dutch John are the harder ones and even on the condition they are in now, I do them with a JK, 35's and lockers. Most of the time, using just my rear locker.

|Taylorfoy||It will be mostly a DD but will see the beach and uwharrie which from the looks of it is more trails. I like the look of 37s but I’m not sure how well the stock axles will hold up to em. I run 35s on my yj back home and have been able to do a lot but that’s in Washington and I now live in North Carolina|

To downsize to 35's or keep 37's. Well, that's going to depend on how much highway driving you are going to do with it and if off roading, how you plan to use it there. Red and hard black rocks and trails, keep them but if that's not what you want to do, 35's are going to be a better choice.

|bdavid500||Congrats on the Rubicon.|

|Taylorfoy||Well I ended up not going for a jku at all even a jk lol I found a 05 rubicon with 108k for the right price and jumped on it. Now the question to keep the 37s or downsize to 35s|

|mjp83||Careful, a 2011 has the new interior, but still the 3.8 and 4 spd auto. Some 3.8ís run forever, but many eat oil. 2012 and up is the new and more powerful 3.6.|

|Taylorfoy||I passed it going to look at a 11 Sahara tonight, it’s not going to be a hard core trail rig mostly a mall crawler / beach rig. I want a 12 and up hit there too damn expensive around here|

What are they asking for it?
$16K is mid range for what it's worth. so if you could get it for around $12-13K with your TJ in trade, it's fair. If you don't like that price, you may have to walk and keep looking. Personally, I would see if you could find a 12+. You might need to forgo the power interior and 430 radio but you get a much better engine/transmission combination.
It's going to run you around $3K for lift, tires and wheels, depending on what you want.

|Taylorfoy||I tried to do my tj plus 8k and it didn’t work 😂 or my tj 13k and they put a lift and tires on it also didn’t work😂. What would be a good deal for this thing?|

|Taylorfoy||It does have the touch screen with nav and power doors and locks|
