You should buy a complete kit that will give you all the other components you will need. Also, you will need to have a new CV shaft and a SYE kit, if you are running the NP231 t/case. You didn't give us much info on your rig or driving style/habits to go by.

RE kits here!

Well since money doesn't seem to be an issue for you based on your wants, go to Currie Enterprises - Custom Rearends, Jeep/Off-road Parts, Crate Rearends, 4x4 Rearends and go to town. Get a set of Rockjocks front and rear and their 4 inch lift with arms. Antirock f/r and a sye with cv driveshaft. Then run it!!

People say to stick with 33's because 35's cost a bunch to do right. While your at Currie look at their steering setup also. Then off to Vanco for brakes and you should be off to a solid start. Then comes armor bumpers tires etc but you will be doing real good at that point. Curries Hi9 axles are also real nice.

Whether you want Currie or Dynatrac, I can help. Being an authorized dealer for both. Do you want full replacement axles or do you want to use as many of your components as possible to save $$$? To be honest, building a front D44 is not that much less than a D60 and the benefits to a D60 are numerous.

Send me a PM with what you want for a locker, R&P ratio, brakes, etc. and I will get you some pricing. You can go full Currie and get their suspension as well or go with Rock Krawler, Rubicon Express, or a whole myriad of other company's products.

A realistic budget is the determining factor here. You also don't want to build then rebuild throwing $$$ to the wind. So if cost is a factor at this point, you should think about building in stages where you won't have to get rid of products you have already installed to grow. Make sense?

Let me know if I can help.

You don't have to do the steering for the axles but moving 35's offroad will twist the stock steering in short order.
