Your early for tuesday but I'll help.

Just get some 40's and put them on, dont worry about tire rubbing better axles steering gearing SYE body protection etc.

Do get a TB spacer a snorkel a cyclone for the air filter for 18% better fuel economy and power. Sounds like a sweet rig

Oh and welcome noob. do your self a favor and check out the /forum/67-jeep-non-hardcore/

1) Congratulations you bolted on some shit.
2) OR even better perhaps you bought it already bolted on
3) Don't know the difference from break and brake.
4) Decline excellent information from l&tcustomsllc

So Read this.
http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showp...92&postcount=4
When your done reread it.

Cute Jeep by the way

Dude, you cut and paste from your craigslist add then? Why are you selling it, I thought you just switched from a JK? All I did was google all that crap you put in your first post...

d44's will not last long with bigger tires. Think about axles. Limit your bump travel for bigger tires to avoid rubbing. You have plenty of lift unless you want to prerun the thing.

and yes, the tb spacer will make a HUGE difference.......





people like you piss me off, you come over here , tell everyone you had a jk then ask some random dumbass question....now, dumbass= jk driver, thanks...

now, head over to jeepforum.com and ask the question again, so everyone there can tell you how well 40's work on a d44, and stroke your ego about how badass your jeep is.

No way, it came with the stock shafts to use as back-ups! Sell those 44s and get some real axles to handle 40s, and while your switching them ditch that radius arm setup. Even then its still pretty much a bolt on rig in the Jeep world.

1. My daddy this, my daddy that. Are you 12 years old?
2. I have done so much welding this, wrenching that, I am so awesome my awesomeness is awesome and THEN you post the craigslist description?
3. In 2 more months you will start complainging about your post counter not changing.
4. In 3 months you will complain about the search feature.

Go away

Might add...you should hope that Chit Chat doesn't get a hold of this...

Not sure how safe I would feel in a cage that was "fabbed" by somebody that is confused by a TB spacer
