Have not tried the real nasty stuff with 3ft+ steps as to not break, I'm gentle but don't want to be skipping stuff in the matter I may break.
I built my rig to run 33's, with the way of going to 35's, I like the 35's but I like my 37's better and I'm pretty content running the 37's, but if I upgrade anything then I think I just might save more money up front if I plan for like 39's as to be not in the same predicament of having to upgrade again.
no offence intended.... it sounds like you need to do some more wheeling. once you get some more seat time and find out what kind of wheeling you want to do mostly and if you ever want to have a wheeling spefic rig. once you get those thinkgs figured out then you can decide if you need dana 60's... I wouldnt recommend them in anything that sees DD duties... if it's occasional high speed travel, thats fine but if you drive the jeep every day you dont need 60's under it.
