here's the plan... 98 TJ Build

would it be worth it to beef up the stock D30 and D35 with some 30 spline axles and regear to run 35s??? here's what i have in mind for my build let me know what u think...

-6 inch Rough Country X series lift
-Heavy duty steering system
-35" Boggers w/15x10 soft 8s
-30 spline axles for the D30 and D35 Both Locked and geared to run the 35s
-Swap 2.5l and Ax5 for a 4.3L with Ax15 keeping the stock np231 upgrade w/ SYE

Some other odds and ends stuff but that pretty much the jist of it....

So what do you think?
Is it worth doing a build like that?
Any suggestions......

if your gonna go through all that work and money swapping motors, and transmissions and full suspension job, then why stop there. Get a dana44 for the front and the rear. At least do the rear.

I would probably be cheaper to buiy a rubicon that has the 4.0, d44's in the front and rear and lockers in the front and rear. All you would need after that is suspension and tires.

maybe a better option to buy the Rubicon...or for cheaper you could just buy another TJ with 4.0 and at least the D44 in the rear.

this is what a dana 44 cover will look like. pretty strong. in my comanche, i broke the dana 30 axle 3 times while wheeling in hawaii. never broke the 44.
