Question lift done what next?

I did my 4" lift and 33s almost a month ago, and am trying to decide what to do next. My '98 TJ sport has a D35 w/ 3.07s.

Im not sure weather I should find a D44 and regear to 4:10s or 4:56s, or just regear the D35 and swap the axles and what not. I like to play on the rocks and am not sure if the D35 will hold up. OR should I do the SYE & CV? the gearing is killing me so Im leaning that way, but the bouncing pops it out of second sometimes, and the drop bracket on the T-case linkage keeps pushing the rod out of place and I have to shift the case from underneath which sux.

I cant decide. Any input is appreciated.

I know people think its a auto response but I say do the 44. If you like to play on the rocks a 44 will help keep you in play longer than a 35.
Building a 35 is like putting a ring on a stripper. You can do it but its just a bad idea.

I know some of you will say "I have had a D35 and wheeled it for years with no problems" Good for you.

I'd say sell off all that stuff you just bought and buy some one tons and 42s. You'll need a big motor and some full hydraulic steering. Get a tow rig and trailer. Then you are set!

I've met people from Philly. They spoke well. They can even type complete sentences. If you'd like help and opinions like you asked for then how about this? Fix the shit that's wrong on your junk first. Then worry about new modifications.

There are some good deals to be had. If you get an all stock 44 Keep it around 500-700. You can find a built 44 for 900-1200. Keep in mind you would still need to gear the front to match.

As for Cliff. I think he was just having a little fun. Thick skin is the only way to go...
60's and 42's would be the way to go on if you had the money.

I've read there are plenty of people that did a 2" lift, then a 4" lift, then a 6" lift, then a stretch. Would have been much cheaper to just figure out what you wanted and work towards it.

Well Said Fatbob!!!

If it were me; I would find a 44 and go with 4:56 gears.. While your down there, you might as well add a locker as well.. This upgrade it like remodeling the kitchen; the most expensive room in the house to upgrade!! You don't want to skimp here either..

If you are keeping the D35 do the SYE now and then gears. If you go with a 44 wait to do the SYE because the drive shaft will be a different length.
