Take those D35 shafts when you go to Rausch; I've seen people there who've broken their D35 pay $100 a piece for those just so they can finish their weekend.

That's why I pulled them I go prepared. Between me and another friend we have two sets of spare shafts so.

No magic, I knew you wouldn't need them for yourself. People don't give the D35 enough credit; it will hold up fine with 33s.

I've done most of the blacks and a handful of reds at Rausch all on 33s and a D35. This weekend will actually be my first trip with the 8.8.

Sweet, I hope you have fun with the 8.8 this time got it locked?

I was going to rush throwing an 8.8 in, but I want to do something a little different than the standard TJ brackets in the rear. So I need a little more time to research.

The first thing someone said to me on one of the videos was, "that d35 aint gona last long." People will never stop hating on them I swear. I run trails for 14 hours and push it as hard I can and it won't break. What else is gona do it?

I had a ton of fun, and got to see some really mean rigs first hand. Had a guy I had been talked to on the RC forum show up with his slightly stretched TJ on 40s w/ the whole deal done to it. Was really amazing to see.

Nope, no locker yet; just the factory LS. But the clutch packs are pretty tight, and I'm running less LS additive than normal so it's almost like a locker. Still deciding on what exactly I want to do. I want ARBs front and rear, but I'm not going to bother installing them until I regear, and I don't want to regear until I figure out what I want to do with my front axle. I'm leaning towards either an F9 or RJ60 from Currie, but I want to explore all of my options before pulling the trigger.

RC is definitely one of my favourite places, can't wait for this weekend. It's been over a month since we've been there and that's way too long.

What tire size do you want to end up running? I am still contemplating my front axle once I get the 8.8 done. I want to end up with 37s, I might settle with 35s though.

Thats sweet, LS is better than nothing. We pulled a nice 8.8 for my brother with a LS, haven't really tested it out yet but it seemed to work alright out of the jeep although thats barely a test.

ARBs would be super sweet, I figure I should be able to afford those when the time comes. I am really happy with my Aussie especially after this weekend. It got me over stuff like pizza rock that guys with an inch more lift than me and a rear locker couldn't.

Do you have the 4.10 gearing currently or 3.73s?

I want to go out again already, the guy who showed us around the first day lives only 30 minutes away. I would go out every month but Its just not in my budget. Good news is when I move in at school in a few weeks I am about ten minutes away from rock run, so I will be able to get some wheeling in.

Not sure on exact tire size, that's part of what I'm deciding. I'm going to move up to 35s in a month or two once my 33s wear out a bit more. I'm going to be on 35s for a while, at least until I get my fiancé a Jeep and can use her car to commute to work. I want to keep this Jeep street friendly, so 37s will probably be the biggest tire I throw on it until someday when it becomes my trail-only rig.

If I stick with 35-37s the F9 will probably hold up fine, but if I eventually want something like 40s it would make more sense to get a larger axle now; I hate spending money twice. But again, that means full width and not as street friendly unless I get stock outers temporarily which doesn't make a whole lot of sense. But then maybe it would be cheaper in the long run to get a 60 with stock outers and then upgrade to 1-ton outers when I'm ready. I just keep going back and forth; eventually I'll commit to something.

I've got the 42RLE so I'm running 3.73s. It's not bad with 33s, but I'm going to want to regear after the 35s.

You can do most all of the blacks and even some reds pretty easily without any lockers, it's all in driver skill and building smart. This is a friend of mine hung up on Pizza Rock:



It's hard to see there, but he's actually hung up on his long arms. We had to lift his rear end and stack some rocks. He was either hung up going forward on his control arms, or hung up going backward on his stock belly pan that hung down. That's with 37s, a lot of lift, and locked front/rear. Even though I've only got 4" of lift and 33s, I made it up there without any issue whatsoever since I've got a TT and short arms.

Saturday is Topless for Tatas, but Sunday is just a regular day of wheeling; I'm sure money is tight since you were just there, but you and your friends are more than welcome to join us Sunday, or any time we go up for that matter. Keep an eye out on blueridgejeepers.org if you're ever interested; we typically try to go once a month.

I am right there with you, I think 37s are definitely manageable for a DD and still be set up right for offroad. As far as tire clearance laws go it would be hard to space anything bigger out from the jeep and keep it legal while functioning well. I understand about the gears, I run 3.07s with the 32 rh and the correct gearing is 4.10s. so not really that bad. So you have a F9 front too? I didn't know that, but nice. How do you feel about a good d44 front swap? I can get a 9 inch just as easy, so I should probably just go with that. I feel ya on the axle thing, but I feel like you can run a ton of trails on a 37 with a good setup, you dont NEED the 40s. just like your picture of your buddy with 37s, you out performed him on 33s in that instance because of your setup. It's all about planning.

My TT will go in the same time as the 8.8, thats why it is gona take me some time to get it all done. I see he is on his long arms, I plan to stay on shorter arms, maybe try to do something like a mid 3 like with triangled/wishbone uppers, and mount the CA mounts tucked up behind the frame. Its just something I am going to work on and see how it would work.

I slid on my belly just so slightly over pizza rock. With a TT I would have been golden. We had a guy run a mildly lifted XJ on 33s that he bought for 600 bucks on all the blacks we did, and he was open. He trailered it so he didn't have to worry about damage, and drove hard. But smart at the same time. So I definitely get what you mean, some guys just try to do things with brute force instead of thinking and looking, walking the trail, picking good lines and using good technique.

I would love to come back out, but this weekend I can't. We are definitely looking to come out again however. This past weekend they had the toyota take over plus the WF group I took had about 25 jeeps. Then there were the regular crowd. My new buddy mayday is trying to get us to come out, I think he is coming next weekend. But I just can't make it happen. There is an event at my local park, you guys should come check it out. I am going to try and make that weekend myself. Roastin on the Rocks 2012

Should actually be pretty close to you guys.

Anyways, I actually have an account on BRJ, but don't get on actively just because I haven't been able to make any wheeling trips due to working alot this summer.

No, I don't have the F9 yet; it's one of the options I'm considering.

There is nothing wrong with a D44, but if you go with one out of Jeep you might as well stick with a D30 since for the most part they are the same. If you go with a real D44, like an HP 44, it could be a good axle but to run 37+ you are going to need to beef it up a lot, shorten it to stay legal, etc... With the money it would take to do that you could get a brand new F9 or even RJ60 with chromo shafts, steering, etc. That's why I'm looking at something like either an F9 or RJ60 from Currie or similar. You can get them in stock width to stay legal, and then when this Jeep becomes a trail only rig in the future I could take the time to swap just the outers to 1-tons and make it full width.

I want to do a 4-link in the rear as well, and maybe a 3-link in the front. I'm hoping to do that this winter when things slow down a bit.

I'll be sure to put the big rubbers event on our calendar. Some of our members went up for the spring thaw, but I think we had something else planned that weekend so many of us couldn't make it. We'll try to make this one. I know we are going to wheel at the new Anthracite off-road park near Shamokin, PA in September, but I can't remember the date.

Yeah I was thinking hp44 from an older truck. Haven't looked into them a ton but I talked to someone who did them. I just need a better option than a hp30 for the front if I am going 37s. I think a 9 inch could fit the bill. Lots of time for me to research it though.

I know the rubi/jeep 44s are essentially the same as the 30 except the r/p which isn't the weak link anyways. I have seen the jk44 builds for a Tj but like you said. I might as well go with a 9 or a 60.

I really think the f9 is probably what I'll end up with because I won't ever go bigger than 37s and I mean that. However the 60s would be cool. I met up with this guy at Rausch and we wheeled the first day. D60 f/r on 40s. Pretty neat rig.

I would be interested in checking out anthracite.

I'll probably end up waiting before doing anything with the front axle. The D30 should hold up with 35s just fine, and I plan on being on 35s for a while. You can do a lot on 35s, and I'd really hate to make things too easy/dull by jumping up to 37s+ so fast. Plus I'd like to stretch it a bit before doing 37s. I think 37s are a bit too tall for the stock TJ wheelbase. Once I decide how big I want to go I'll make a choice.

And again I agree with you. I want to do a little stretch. I think I can swing it and I want to stick with a little shorter Wb then typical. Probably will do about 2 inches front and rear each when the time comes. The d30 is plenty strong for 35s at least for a while. Your not locked out front right?

I like the challenge I have now on 33s, it makes things interesting. But a tuck and another locker would be sweet.

No, not yet. I've been meaning to throw a lunch box in the front, I just haven't had the time. Hopefully before our next trip I will.

It's fun. It made the black trails a snap, just because of wheel positioning. I was able to get myself aligned pretty much however I wanted without bumping over every rock. I like the finesse. And the Aussie locks up really hard.

Yeah I'm looking at either an Aussie or Lock-Right; I saw someone mention the Aussies being back ordered at the moment so I might end up with a Lock-Right. Main reason I haven't is because of steering in the rocks. Playing in places like the red trail Rock Creek in the middle of the property it can be hard to steer locked up; those I wheel with who have selectable lockers up front usually have to unlock at times to steer properly. I really don't want to have to deal with that, but I think the benefits will outweigh the consequences.

It definitely does get tough but your right benefits outweigh consequences. Sometime I have to bump back an forth between drive and reverse while turning to get it to turn where I wanted. Other times you can just let the tire spin while your trying to grab let you turn. Depends on the situation. I know I got frustrated a few times on cemetery when trying to turn with it. You can always drop into 2wd am let it unlock and turn but that's not very practical. But it's an option if you must. The Aussies as of this year are now 100 percent USA made in new York so that's cool too. They always seem to go on back order this time of year. I got mine as soon as they became available this spring.
