Bought my jeep about 2 weeks ago and last night I ordered a 4.5 RE sf lift, sye kit, and a tw drive shaft. decided to buy this after i went wheeling yesterday and almost got stuck a few times. Where i live in new jersey you have to go through alot of deep sand to find any descent trails. 30" AT (well hybrid, mostly street tires) just dont cut it.
so my questions: how big of a tire can i run with this? I know i need something wide to go over the sand and i know i will need new rims for the wider tires so that i can still turn. any suggestions? how do i tell what spedo gear i need?
also, any install tips for the lift or sye? done plenty of motor work and some suspension work but iv never torn a t-case down even tho it seems really simple. i think i will get a new chain for it while im at it.
any thoughts, tips, suggestions will be appreciated. this is the first in a long line of things to be done to this jeep. my list also includes an aev highline kit, a chevy v8 swap (im thinking an LQ9 truck motor), d44 up front, and selectable lockers of some kind (probably arb). this is not my dd but i do drive it alot so i will keep it streetable. i will try to put up some pics of it tomorrow when its light out and will definately put some pics up when i put the lift on.
