How big is your check book?

Dana 35 and 37" tires don't mix. Neither does your Dana 30 front axle. The 44 is marginal at best in stock form.

You don't need 6" of suspension lift to clear 37" tires. You need 3" of lift and some high line fenders from GenRight or T&T customs.

97TJ, 4L, RE6" Long arm, Currie 9" HP front & rear, 4.88 gears - but I do have a 1" body lift. I'm working on updating my pictures and posting them soon.

As mentioned earlier, you don't need a body lift, but that's the least of your (cost) concerns since axles, gears, SYE, should all be considered at the same time.

Mr Clifford, pretty much answered it good...

If your worried about gas milage, then your making the wrong move to 37s and should be looking at Honda's... LOL

Front Axle neede: D44 Currie 9" or D60
Rear Axle needed" D44, Ford 8.8, Currie 9", D60 or 14bolt

As I stated ina previous post of yours... what type of wheeling do you plan on doing, will determine the Jeep plans.... if your doing alot of street driving then why 37's... what is the lift law for your state... and tire size....
