does this sound like a good set up

i just came into some money and my wife is finally going to let me lift the jeep. the only thing is she will only let me go up to 33 inch tires so what im thinking is...

toys by troy front and rear bumpers and tire swing
Warn Thermometric Winch 9.5ti
jeeperman rock rails
street lock rims
mtr tires
rubicon express 3.5 long arm lift w/ome shocks and steering stab
bushwacker fender flares

i have a 06 rubicon 6 speed does anyone think i need to add the cv yoke?? what does everyone think of this set up. should i change/add anything else. let me know your opinions

Sounds like you will end up with a capable rig! You will probably need a new rear driveshaft, but already have the fixed yoke on the rear of your transfer case.

I think it sounds like a solid set-up. I'm really thinking the 3.5" LA is a great way to go and I'll be interested in seeing how yours comes out.

You'll need a CV rear DS most likely. I have a Coast 1350 but that's just one of many good CV DS's out there.

I would add or think about the following
Currie heavy duty steering system
xd9000i with syth rope as that model has proven itself for years.
If you don't already have one Oil/gas pan skid of some kind
Ditch the fake bead locks either get real ones or leave them for the mall crawlers.

But what ever you do it will be nice jeep from the list you have.

I like it!

My old rig (O3 Rubicon) was a 4 1/2" RE short arm on 285 MTRs... And I did it all just fine.

Why not keep the stock wheels?

I ran an Auto and did a TC Drop to keep away the DL Vibe.

Alot of LA kits have a cool belly-up. I'd look into a Short Shaft or a CV Drive Shaft.

That 9.5Ti Winch Rocks I just got my second one for my 07 JK.
