Question Lift ?

Hey TJ Fans,

I have a stock 2003 Rubicon with the normal D44 front and rear w/ axel locking and 4.10 gears. Currently, I am not into rock crawling but do like to go out and play in the mud in-between my daily pavement commuting. To start my mods, I don't want to spend a lot in new axels and gearing, what is the best lift and tire size for my rubi axels and gear setup?

As I like aggressive looking Jeep photos are much appreciated!

Build similar to Erickpl and you'll be set.

OME 2.5" suspension
JKS 1.25" body lift
JKS adj. control arms
JKS adj. track bars
33" tires
skid plates, bumpers, and body armor all over

He can show you his hardcore pics. These were handy.

Dana 44 front and rear are very good axles most jeeps only come with a Dana 35 rear and Dana 30 front but you can buy them with Dana 44 most people run 35's-37's with Dana 44 so your set in that department! i have a Dana 44 rear and a Dana 30 front with 35's on a 5 1/2" longarm kit im waiting for my front Dana 30 to break before i get a new Dana 44 front
