Newbie -Please help - 307 gears & lift options
Well I found out the horrible news the other day that I have 3.07 gears as I had feared. anyway this puts me in a bad position as my budget was already maxed and now I added expense.
I want to mostly just goof around off road and will drive on road a lot.. This is not daily driver just weekend toy... I will nto attempt the impossible while off road but want to be able to have fund when I do go...
Here is my plan and please tell me if it will work and if not what part needs corrected..
currently run 31x10.50's (no powerhouse on road already)
4.0L 6 cyclynder 5 speed manual, 2004 wrangler x
Looking at a 3" BDS lift kit first. This kits has been a difficult decision and I have read and read reviews and still not sure if this is best kit for money. Not sure if I wanted to go bigger later how much this one would limit me.. The kit is 725.00 for kit and includes shocks.
Keep my 31 x 10.50's on until I save up but not sure how stupid it will look???
keep same gears (at least for now)
No SYE (least for now)
Eventually I was thinking I could add 33" tires and see how bad power is.
Drive it with no power until I can afford the gears (1400.00 4.10 yukon gears installed at local shop)
any thoughts or concerns? Better game plan options? If you recommend a kit can you please tell me or pm me a place to get it from. I have had a hard time finding the kits and where to buy.
What all am I missing???
Thanks in advance!
