just curious.

Wow that is a nice looking TJ. Is the RE lift you have short-arm with the adjustable control arms or long arm? I didnt think that a TJ could fit 37's with only 4.5" and spacers.

mainly cost and availablility. actually I believe its a 44 with 30 outers so you still get the larger ring gear.

yep short arm with a mistatch set up adjustable contorl arms. I have a 1.25" bl but with some triming they would fit without the bl.

The new setup drives great but I haven't had time yet to try it on the trails but it should do good. I know from plying on the rti ram that my extended brake lines are too short so I will need to get longer ones before I flex it out to much. I can't wait to see what its like having a front locker and a low range that atcually makes a difference.

Dana 44 pig and tubes with Dana 30 outer knuckles and c's. 30 spline inners with 27 spline outers. Uses the same axle joint as a 97-present 30 due to them being upgraded to 44 joints at the time. With the POS Jap crap lockers you need a thick ring gear and are limited to 4.10,4.56,4.88, and 5.13 ratios. Were as with a 30/35 or 30/44 you could only go to a 4.88 gear max.
