Great rig! In your shoes I would not settle for anything less than 37s and whatever lift you need to clear them. They have a long wheelbase which translates to a poor break over angle. Plus, they just look so good with big tires and 37s is about the biggest tire you really have any hope of balancing well for the street.
I wheeled longer wheelbase with 35s with no issues. I am about 10 inches shorter now so i should be fine
Still not worried about it. I am not going to be wheelin it the sameAs the Toyota. Mostly local trails up here and maybe a rubicon or fordyce trip.
Yeah I planned gussets and a truss. There is a switch for esp that looks like I can turn it off. I will check it the hid conversion. I need armor and bumpers. Looking at the metal cloak stuff for the lift
Will at metal cloak is a good guy...The switch doesn't do ....iif your box allows some slide so steering wheel is off it will be a pain in the @$$....cut the wire at the accelerometer and put a switch in.
Will do on that switch then.
i guess I'll just gear the 30 and keep it open for now with a truss and gussets. I will arb the rear. That will save me some money.
I'd look for. Decent d44 housing and gear it then....I wouldn't spend a dime on the 30 if you plan to upgrade...I'd leave it alone.A good housing can be had for $200 to $400....or someone who has swapped....I have grabbed front and rear Rubicon axles with lockers that had less than 500 miles for $1800 total....If you do anything address the cgussets....there's no resell on a 30...Also the 44s on a jk aren't like wagoner units...better bearings, synergy makes ball joints for them but the lack of manual hubs sucks...spintek makes a manual conversion and with custom shafts it's around $2200..ouch.
Most 44 housings I find are over a grand for a bare one.
Thinking about getting some sliders and might have a t case lined up. I am still lookin for a rubicon front axle if anyone finds one.
