Truth be told, any road trip in a Yj, or a Tj for any length of time just sucks. Comfort was not the goal. I loved my TJ on 33's with a little budget lift for around town, still hated driving cross state in it. Can't imagine doing that trip in the one I have now. Not that it couldn't, just would suck
Have to agree with Jim , do what YOU want with it, I personally just couldn't leave those axles sitting in my garage.
But then again, my jeep is not my dd
