So the point is " What Do I Do" do I build up the 44s with over like 5 grand in them or do the Dana 60s and just sell my 44s. This jeep is not my daily driver and made for rocks and beach sometimes mud. Please help. Any opinions are welcomed.
A lot has to do with how the operator does with the skinny pedal!!
And what ever you do, the weakest link is still just that. The EFI system in the JK is such that one can throw your Jeep into low range, take your foot comptelely off the gas, and it will crawl through about anything, except mud where you need wheel speed. And that is where I think the beauty of your Rubi is, is the 4:1 Transfer Case and the 73:1 crawl ratio. I am sure others will chime in with different opinions, but that is OK.
No chain is any stronger than its weakest link. Anjd no matter how strong you build it, there is always a weak link somewhere, so just go out and have fun and when something breaks; just replace it with stronger components then! Good luck, and have fun
