yep! and 5.13s probably at a minimum.. teraflex makes a Dana 60 axle i believe. if you're looking at their 6" long arm... might look at their axles too.

Go with a 60 front 14bolt rear, the d60 rear (normally) isn't that great of an axle actually, but a built axle like a rockjock rear 60 etc is a bit better than your standard junkyard swap. I would think the 60 f/r would be fine for 38s if that's all you are doing.

I would not do over 37s on stock rubi axles. And for the money it makes total sense to go with a sport and build your own way.

EDIT: tabber, tera might only make a 60 rear? I'll look into it. I'm seeing older evidence of the CRD60 front, but only the rear now.

i'm in florida too... running a 4" short arm lift and 37s... there are rocks around, you just have to know where to look

and Ryan's right... if you're going to build something - i'd build a sport - especially if you know you're going to play with the axles - get the lockers you want, the gears you want... and get em reinforced early...

and for what it's worth: i'm running a sleeved and gusseted Dana 30 with an OX locker... but i try to be real easy on the skinny pedal

oh yeah - that's plenty. 5.13 might be too much... if you're careful - i'd run 35s on the stock 4.10 gears for a bit. see how much pep you loose. you might decide 4.88s (what i have) are as high as you want to go... or you might want the 5.13.

when you redo your gears - throw the sleeves and c-gussets on. you just have to be easy off road. i ran my Dana 30 for about a year and a half with 35s and no reinforcement on 3.73 gears. i finally had enough and dumped money into it... i did the sleeves, gussets, locker and gears all at once.

that hurt the wallet .

This


you know you want the 38s tho Get the cheapest sport you can and then get some good axles under it. Should end up being just under a Rubi+ the other mods you'd need. The tires wheels etc are all a wash.

When I am ready for a new wrangler in a few years, I will be building up a base model.

again i agree with Ryan... i bought the 35s knowing i wanted 37s... so that was a waste. if you want the larger tire... get it. nothing wrong with that! just have to adjust accordingly..

happy to help with advice or even wrench on the weekends. i love tinkering man!
