warthog build thread

ok here goes. Since I'm starting to get stuff for the Warthog I'll start my build thread.

so far I've got Corbeau Baja xrs seats, a tuffy underseat storage, a trektop and smittybuilt xrs bumper I'll have to post some pics of it when i get a chance. got the driver seat and underseat installed on my way to getting it set up the way I want.

When I bought my jeep it already had a 4.5 old man emu lift and 37/12.5x15 with beadlocks, and arb in the front and mini spool in the ford 9" out back got an arb to put in the rear just not had time and wanting to downsize to either 33's or 35's the lil 2.5 isn't liking the 37's. Ideas on that

Um. Downsizing? To 35's all you would need is to buy the tires. Maybe adjust your gears. But down to 33's your overkill on both your axles and lift height. Might as well sell those and buy something proper. Or keep it as is and do a turbo diesel engine swap.

Regear for 37"s..... No need to downsize.
