Hi and welcome to WF.

Since you have a 2006 you should have posted in the TJ forum.

They would be able to help you out better there since their jeep will be the same model as yours.

Maybe see if the thread can be moved there?

Take a look at Banks Air intake and Cat Back system. Works great on my 2002 TJ.

You planning to upgrade the axles with the bigger tires? What about the gears?

37" tires and little itty bitty 4.10's should be a fun time. (I'd give some serious thought to some 5.13's or even a set of 5.38's)

i was thinking about doin the axles next spring....i only run the large tires for spring, summer fall....bout march/april - october/november weather pending....i live in buffalo so for a light jeep with 12.5 wide and that tall is horrrrible there is no traction and ur like a sled on the snow....i switch to 31x10.50x15 hurcules for snow tires......i thought that the 4.10 could handle the 37 they work great for the 35...i looked at the chart on quadratec it seemed ok...im mostly on the road then we i do go offroad its more watery mudd pits then the thick stuff......you guys think i will have any problems or ill be fine till next spring when i do axles?...im puttin a 3"body to help clear the tires i dont think i need it much only an inch but i thought if i hit hard or a deep hole it will help from rubbin the tire.......
