Scrapped the TJ plans, now JKU. Build advice
I had a thread where I was asking advice to next level the TJ, but I have decided that if I am going to spend the money, I wanted to use a JKU as the platform.
So, here's the plan at this point and I'm looking for advice and experience before I go through the learning curve and building several times over.
Want to run 40's
At least coil over suspension, maybe bypasses?
I have 2004 superduty axles. HP Dana 60 and Sterling 10.5
I have a 2017 L86 (gen V 6.2) with an 8L90
I have an Atlas II 4.3 that I can use to start, but I think I will want a 2.0
What problems will I encounter with the Super Duty axles? What off the shelf or mild fab suspension packages will work best? I want to use this thing for dunes, hammers, rubicon, moab, etc and to be able to drive down the road.
I quit the Jeep thing about 10 years ago, moved on to buggies and now I'm going back to the Jeeps. I would like to keep a lot of the buggy performance but able to take the kids for ice cream in the Jeep.
Lastly, I know it's a JK but I don't want to go over to jkowners, I looked around and it doesn't seem like theres a lot of movement or real builds.

Off the shelf....not really gona happen IMO if you want the best results.
Tons of builds use search on JK owners and here..
I'm doing my 4 door with C/O's and Bypasses, 3 link and Trailing arm etc.
Nothing will be easy doing this level of a build.
