Question Need Ideas

Hey Everyone,

New to the forum here and liking what I have read here so far. I was looking for ideas of what to do to my 01 6 cyl Wrangler Sahara next. I currently have a 4" lift with 33's and a warn front and rear bumper. I'm thinking some lockers next but not sure. Any ideas would be great.

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!

What type of wheelin' do you do? How do you use your Jeep? More info would help get you a good answer.

or do some axle upgrades.

Currently a little bit of muddin and basically whatever areas i can find that are not paved....LOL i live in dallas, tx so i am limited but would like to start venturing out of dallas to find some areas to play that are a little more rough.

I do have quick disconnects already...i should have mentioned that.

I will post up pics when i get home tonight.

I have a pro comp lift from 4 wheel parts...here's the link to it..

in that case id stick with what i said before and if you're doing mud then you'll want mud tires if you dont already ahve some

but yeah engine and tranny skid and fuel tank skid
and a front locker, auto is fine
and then movin forward you oculd get a rear locker, manual preffered
sterring skid
CV/SYE and a tummy tuck!!! thats probably the best mod but also the most expensive
the list does on and on but that's what i would start with

Can you help me out with what "CV/SYE and a tummy tuck" is? Sorry I do not know a whole lot about this stuff just yet but I'm quickly learning. Thanks for your input!

sye=slip yoke eliminator. used to get rid of any vibrations you have when you put on a suspension lift. it allows you to get rid of the tcase drop. you have to use a cv style driveshaft with a sye. you will also need rear adjustable upper control arms if you decide to get an sye/cv driveshaft. a tummy tuck gets rid of the huge tcase skidplate with a flat skid plate. the flat plate tucks up and gives increased clearance. you will probably need a 1" BL to do a tummy tuck...or clearance may be very tight.

Thanks, if you had to prioritize what would be next after what I have done to my Jeep what would it be?

personally, i would go with the sye/cv and rear adjustable uppers. that will smoothen out everything and give you more clearance. then i would do a rear axle upgrade (if you have the dana 35) and then some armor.

it doesn't sound like you wheel super hard so i think the axle and armor could wait until after you got the sye/cv and control arms.
