Im not lifting my jeep for a long while maybe 8 months or so i have a long time to learn. What spare parts should i have on the trail? i wont really bang it up that hard but i know accidents do happen. But i don't know what else to do. i mean im to old to go learn something like this. But where im going if i can get onto to the basically no obstacle trails ill be fine. and there usually close to the hard trails. I have no friends that are interested or know anything about fab at all. So im pretty much lost.

So what your saying is that a lot of other guys take it into water like that. Oh and i only will drive this to trails. I probably wont use this as much during the winter and spring. But summer ill use the jeep a lot. The electronics have to be able to seal up somehow. If you look on youtube at capt rick sinks lake christy rausch creek you seen a guy with 33 max going into water thats like way over his engine. I mean that jeep has to be a dd. Anyways to prevent the uncomfortable stuff after driving into water like that? Seat covers?

True, but I have seen quite a few running the 44's on 36/37s with great success and running some hard trails as well. Since the RCV's came out a couple years ago, it has proven that it can handle the abuse in the d44's along with running 36's & 37's. Yep the outters is were you'll have more issues as mentioned.

I dunno where you live but somewhere near you has to be a 4x4 club that would be glad to have you join as a member. Clubs are huge sources of information, help, etc. and you'll likely find a lot of them who can fab, weld, modify, or just be generally helpful.

You feel you're too old to learn how to do this stuff? I was nearly 50 when I started getting into modding and really learning how to work on my Jeep in depth. I was nearly 60 when I taught myself how to weld. How old are you?

I try staying out of deep water and mud... that stuff takes more of a toll on maintenance, like brakes, ds, trannies and engines. Last summer I watched a guy go flying thru a paddle to get a cool pic.... well that cool pic, costed him about $2k to get his engine fixed, since he managed to get it hydrolocked and cause some internal damage.

I typically stick to rock crawling and some trail riding mabe a lil mud/water here & there, but the cleanup afterwards is a pain is the arse...

No I think what Jerry is saying is that would be the deepest you could if needed.

Check out the state forum threads and see whos in your area and what clubs are near there. Tons of people on here are always going to RC for wheeling trips, I know I will be next spring & summer

Yea I'm all new to this and have pretty packed weekends so I don't know about a club. I'm still kinda confused about highline fenders. So 4 inch lift hyline fenders. How far out are hylines? Cost?

Outers usually refers to the Knuckles and Ball Joints and sometimes the outter stub/axle shaft.
