rebuilding a yj in the winter sucks

cant wait for spring so the project will go faster.i can only work on it on warm days (no shop) build up will consist of a S.O.A., 4 in body lift, 35x12.5x15 boggers,dodge 318 motor,tranny and t-case. i already have lockrites front and rear.this will be the second build-up on this jeep.still working on the teardown, but im getting there.i consider this to be my biggest challenge yet.my goal is to be done by sept 10/11 because thats the first day of hunting season here !

SOA alone is plenty of lift if you're just looking to clear 35s. Is there a reason you want to add 4" of body lift as well? That's a lot.

The 35 will not last long behind a 318, I'd look into a Ford 8.8 rear axle. You'll also want to think about your transmission and drive shafts as well with that amount of lift.

I would definitly do a 8.8 or d44 in the rear for sure, and why so much lift... I am an advocate of lcg builds so I am sitting at 4"s of lift and down the road will do metalcloaks highline fenders so I can stuff 35s with just a 4" lift

i want to have a quick disconnect for my swaybar and im thinking that i'll need the additional lift so the tires wont rub during full articulation. or do you think i'll be ok without it ? im also looking for dana 44's,the stock ones will have to do for now.

I would stick with your SOA lift and then add a 1 or 2" BL at the most.
I feel your pain about working in the winter weather. I havent touched my TJ at all. By the end of the month I think I'll be good to go.
