Axels and Tires.

Just wanted to get some opinions for direction over the coming months.

I'm currently running a 4" long arm on 33's on my 04 TJ Rubicon. TnT HyLine fenders are on the way and should clear up to a 37" tire.

I'm debating on 35's or 37's. I'm actually leaning towards 35s a bit more at this point. Do many people run 37s on a short wheel base TJ? long term plan is to stretch in 3-4 years when it's no longer my DD. How much would axle work would I need to do to run 37s? Truss, sleeves, gussets?

Don't do 37s. The 44s are already at their limit with 35s. They can be made to last with 37s for a short while but they are ultimately outclassed without serious work.
