Nice build. Just my opinion but if you are going to only lock one axle, I prefer the front. Especially if you plan to do a fair amount of highway driving and have lockouts in the front.

I'd like to do selectable in the rear, and whatever I end up with in the front... not spool or welded. Might leave front open to start and upgrade as necessary

Having a locker in the front is the best upgrade I have ever done. The amount of pulling traction while being able to steer is awesome.

X2
I have ran with just the front locked and just the rear locked. I felt more confident in the jeep with just the front locked.
however having both axles locked is much nicer.

Old Jeeps are cool. Sounds like a neat plan. Definitely something you wouldn't see a lot of.

Cool build, I always wondered about those quad steer trucks myself. Probably takes some getting used to I would think.

You catch on quick. I'd gotten the ass end pretty close to scrapping pulling away from drive through and some tight parking.

Better turning radius than a 4 door jk I think

Let the part out commence. Refined. Can't call you Creepy because he's not parting his TJ out.

who would have thought 1/2 ton axles 60" wide would be hard to come by.

Glad I'm just keeping my eyes peeled

good call. 15" rim should still fit just fine over those too?

I didn't think too much about 6 lug.

Good to know. Load range c seems like the only one that makes sense. And you're pretty much down to a 35x12.5x15 too get that
