my question

ok i am into jeeps now
TJs
theres a TJ here in barbados that is for sale that i am looking to buy as soon as my pockets let me

here is mostly mud, gullies, rivers, hill climbs and swamps.

i dont no nothing about jeeps but that they go almost everywhere.

i am looking to start with a 5.5" claytonoffroad lift kit and work on others parts from there but i dont know where to go from there

i want to end up with atleast 37" tires

so what ring & pinion gears and transfer gears is suitable?

what else do you experts think i should get to make a reliable rig?

what axles come under a 2000 TJ?
are they strong enough to run 37s?

what lockers are best to buy?

i know they are alot of questions but help please

to run 37's your gonna need a lot of work.

you could run a 44 with 37's (if the TJ your lookin at will even have a 44) if it has a 35 then forget about it!...even runnin a 44 with 37's might be pushin it and it will probably be pushin the dana 30 also...your gonna need deeper gears in the stronger/upgrade axles and you'll have to get the sye/cv for that much lift.

don't forget to do a steering upgrade too...

Thats a pretty extreme and capable kit for that area aint it? And like bigjeep said don't even think abou trunnun 37's on a D35/D30 even with an axle kit you're gonna break it unless you just drive it around town. If you're are gonna buy a Jeep and put an expesive ass lift like that on it you must have deep pockets so just spend another $10-12K on some Dana 60's you otta get some RockJock 60's those are sweet, and you probably won't break em'.

you can run 100 inch tires on the 30/35. you just can't run it without breaking.

some run 35's and i've heard of lots of breakage unless you have a super35. some run 33's and i've still heard of some breakage. if you get the super 35 you may can run 35's.

o yeah n here everyone wants to have the biggest rig and i want to compete to

and we still have to discover the more extreme trails here

here the 4x4s arent really prepared for offroading and dont really do difficult trail .they are using between 29-32" tires they cant really go much places with those mild mods.
so i think i will try and see if i can try the more difficult trails with the bigger rigs here. (nissan pathfinder on 40" tires, v8 Mitsubishi Pajero on 39.5" boggers, and 2 suzuki samurais with v6s and full toyota drivetrain{transmission, dual t-cases, axles, driveshafts etc} on 35" tires)

so i would like to be in their league thats why i want to go so big

so i am thinking of the lift and ring and pinion gears for now
then i would work my way from there

My Jeep went place others couldn't dream of going while it was stock cept for some BFG 31 in AT's. Its all about pickin the right line. Anyway I have 33's now and I've broke my spider gears about 4 times now, I'm probably gonna get the Superior super 35 and 30 kit for it, until I can get some real axles. I definantley would run 37's though. I seen a built srtetched TJ with 37's get walked all over buy a CJ-5 with 32's. I well driven Jeep can even out perform a Big ass pathfinder.

The first question is are you sure it's 4wd ? Alot of the island jeeps are not, see if there is a front differential under there first.

Looks like a base model, pre 01? when did the TJs get the high back seats? Thats got the older style seats.

I would say more than likley its a dana 30/35. are you sure thats even a 6 cyl wrangler?

sorry to jump in......
i have 99 sahara and i'm pretty sure it has the dana 30/35.
so what i'm reading here is that i may run into problems if i slap on 33's? or is that only if i hit trails pretty hard? majority of my driving will be onroad 98% of the time.....

hmm the 4 banger with 37s? that be quite rough on the little fella Goota go preatty high on the gears i gues.

For 37s id say 6"-7" of lift should be good.. so you can install that lift you are thinking of and add some minor body lift. I dont know much about the lift you are talking about but i hope its long arm kit otherwise i'd recomend getting long arm kit instead, With that much lift you will need a sye and cv conversion kit $500ish.. Dana 35 wouldnt hold torture offroad and dont even think about locking it with 37s I've seen people also have cut/rised fenders and clear big wheels with smaller lifts.

Dana44 was always an option untill the Rubicon & Unlimited - I've seen dozens of Sahars with D35's under them.

yes the kit is long arm

so how about i start out with the lift and 35s, r&p gears and lockers

i could settle with 35s but just guessed i could use 37s thinking that danas are very strong stock

on dana35, 33s with lockers will be the highest id recomend and 35s w/out locker is pushing it.. There was a linky a member gave me with vids of people breaking dana 35s.. its like breaking a wishbone on a chicken.. I'd highly recomend you put better danas before you get 35s.. if you get better danas then you can possibly go to 37s like you planned instead
