I have been throwing around the Idea of doing some additional upgrades on my jeep over the next couple of years. I have a 2002 Jeep Wrangler X she has been good to me over the last few years and still runs fine. I’ve had a few issues but nothing too bad. She has a little over 160,000 miles and I know in the next year or two I will have to put some money into the engine. I live in the mountains and have to drive up, down & through them and I have to deal with snow about 5 months or more out of the year. Right now she has the stock I6, NV3550 (DDD) Manual Tranny, Dana 30 front diff, Dana 35 rear diff with trac-loc with 3.07 gears, a 2” lift, & running 31” tires. Its work well for me with no big issues so far. I am thinking of putting a 4.7 stroker and maybe switching to an automatic tranny “something with overdrive”. I’ve heard a lot of people talk trash about the Dana 30 & 35 diffs. If I am going to put a motor with more h.p. & torque I am thinking I should upgrade to Dana 44. I would also like to go with 32” tires. I am looking for advice on what front and rear diffs along with gear ratio, transmission swap to auto with overdrive, any engine add on’s that may be needed, and recommended lift/suspension “nothing too big” good ground clearance and fitment for 32”-33” tires. I know this is a big project that will take some money so I need to start getting some ideas and putting some money away. I’ve tried to include a pic, it’s a year or so old but looks the same minus KC lights and new wheels and tires. Thanks for any ideas.
