You run 40's with the front 44 and you're going to do one of 2 things. Drive it super easy or break it. I think you'll break shafts before you will hurt the ring gear. By the way, before you waste money on cryoing, you might want to talk to an actual heat treater rather than the typical "send us your stuff to freeze" folks before you spend the cash. True cryogenic treating must happen within about 4 hours of the actual heat treating to do anything with retained austenite. It becomes a buzz word.

they are longer and stronger then factory TJ arms, JK arms are made from square box and DOM where TJ arms are stamped.

I bought my JK arms off Ebay, they are brand new. Granted they may not be as strong as double sleeved DOM or solid 7075, but for a factory they "seem" pretty beefy so ill give them a shot. Im only using the arms for the front, the rear will be DOM with Johnny Joints.

Like all good projects sometimes plans change. I ditched the idea of running the Stak RAC dana 300 t-case and the North west fab Black box. Instead i just scored an Atlas 4 speed with a HAD emergency brake, 1350 flanges, and North West Fab triple cable shifters for just about the same amount id have into the Stak

I also got a set of 12" fox coilovers for the rear now, so i guess now i gotta get some for the front. thats about it for now. here are a few pics.


4 link, rear truss, rear coilover brackets

high line tube fenders, 3" flare with Louver hotness!

Finally after months of jackin' my jaw i started work on this pile yesterday.

List of parts:
Genright high line tube fenders & strech armor
Fox 14" triple rate coilovers & 12" coilovers
Atlas 4 Speed T-case; 5:4:1 ratio, 1350 flanges, HAD brake, NWF triple cable shifters(should be in by the 2nd week of June)
12 Johnny joints, Poly Performance 4 link brackets/Axle truss/Coil over mounts, JK arms

I started removing all of the bolt on parts yesterday; rockers, corner guards, front suspension, t-case was removed the week before. I should have everything stripped out from underneith the Jeep by tonight.

Pics to come later tonight.

any reason you went with a triple rate kit?

why run the 1350 flange instead of a standard high angle yoke?

triple rate kits came with the coilovers that i bought, same with the 1350 flanges comming on the Atlas I personally have no experience with either. From what i understand the triple rates will be great for fine tuning my coilover but are probably over kill for my needs, same with the flanges.
