Hello everyone! Thanks for visiting this post and a thank you in advance for your tips and advice! I would like to know the order at which you upgraded your Wranglers (or the order in which you wish you had done it). But, if it will help you at all to toss me advice towards my future build, here is what I have planned for my currently stock light khaki 04' TJ Sport.
Zone 4.25 combo lift
33" MT Baja MTZ radials wrapped around 15x8 Black Rock Series 997's (black)
Smittybilt Front SRC Bumper (textured black)
Smittybilt Classic rear Bumper w/tire carrier (textured black)
Quadratec Heavy duty side steps (textured black)
Winch (still doing research)
Monstaliner tub and neoprene seat covers
speaker and cd player upgrade
And I have a feeling with the mudding I'll be doing, eventually I'll wanna toss my crappy little Dana 35 and Dana 30 for something more like Dana 44's or a 8.8 conversion (along with disc brakes). BUT, if I'm gonna do gears, then I might as well go with 35's too right? Makes sence to me hahaha!
Here is the real question, what order do I do all this? Granted, at least at first my Jeep will more likely see more pavement than it will sticky Kentucky clay/mud. Won't the lift mess with my drive shaft lengths? With the MML supposedly this lift won't require a SYE. At least with 33's so I read. 35's I'm not so sure. Anyways, I'd like to do this right the first time. Keep in mind I'm not rock climbing, just muddin' and street driving. So don't be too harsh on my build selections. Money is a huge factor in my build, so I'm not dropping cash on stuff I probably won't need.
Thanks again for the tips and info guys!!!
