crazyredneck is on a distinguished road

I can honestly say that if work continues like it is right now I should be able to do a lot of work to the jeep that I always have wanted to do.

I'm wanting to run 35" tires on a 4" lift. I will have plenty of room for 37's if I wanted. I plan on keeping the 35's so I can have more wheel travel. I think I can honestly say that I am building my jeep a little different than most on here. I'm keeping the LCG theme by the 4" lift and AEV's highline kit.

Ill start with the shoes for now. I'm going to have 2 different sets of tires. In the spring through early fall mud runs/mud bogs are the popular choice of four wheeling in my area. I'm going to get a set of none other than the 35X10.50 boggers. The boggers are for when the jeep is gonna be (hate to say this) trailered to the event. For the street and the other wheeling that I absolutely love I'm going to get a set of 35X12.50 cooper st's. The reason for the coopers is I want a tire that I can go play with, that will last forever, and be a decent sand tire, and most importantly, I have always wanted a set of them.

Axles, gears, and lockers. I'm currently running a ford 9 inch out an early F-100 I believe. It was only 2 inches wider than the stock dana 35. I took the backing plates off of a 75-78 F-150 for the larger drum brakes which work amazing. The rear axle is going to get a treatment of either 4.56 or 4.86 gears with a full spool that I already have.
For the front axle I'm still running the stock dana 30. I'm goin to throw a set off either 4.56 or 4.88 gears in it with some sort of locker, the locker has yet to be decided.

For the lift I have narrowed it down to two different lifts. Both of them are 4", both of them are the same brand. One of them is a long arm and the other is a short arm. They both convert the rear into a triangulated 3 link.
