Default need opinions and/or advice

hey guys,
i'm usually hanging out in the forsale sections but, i've been around for a while now.

anyhow,
i've got a yj thats built up pretty tough but, its to big for me to do anything with anymore. i'd like to do more family friendly ridin'

it had 2.5 ton rocks with detroits under it with 4 wheel steering. and sitting on 49" iroks.

i'm basically wanting to get some ideas for goin smaller, i'm thinking 35-37" tire range and dana 60's

what do ya all think,
thanks, matt

I just wanted opinions on what people thought. Changing it, not changing it, selling it. Or any other ideas. I really like the idea of going to 60s though

Keep the rocks, Get some 44's and lower the Jeep. you might need to trim the body a little so that you can get it low enough so it not to tipsy. If you still want to get rid of them, I know someone who might trade you. He has a D60 front and a 14Bolt with 5.13, Lockers front and rear.

Sell the axles and tires complete, that is a good platform for someone else. Pull out some of your lift, buy some 60's and 38's and go to work.

Or you can buy my CJ7 on 37's!

keep the rockwells, chave them and run 42's and lower it way down or swap axles, lower it way down and run 37-40's on 60/14b. I wouldnt run any smaller than a 37 with a 60. clearance is bad enough right there but if you want the challenge then run 35's.

Whats A Good Asking Price For Those Anyhow:

-49" Iroks (pretty Much Brand New) On 16.5x16 Wheels

-2.5 Ton Rock (both) Fronts With Detroit Lockers. Pans Are Shaved Pinion Brakes, With Hydraulic Rams, Lines, New Pump And Steering Servo.
