I thought you already had a 44?
I ran 538s when I had the 5speed....I'm running 589s now with the aw-4 automatic.. that put the jeep back to what it was with the stick.

Yeah I do Steve front and rear. I just meant I would like a HP and for me I couldn't use a Hp 30, it would need to be a 44.
You have 37s now and I have 35s, I would think 5.89 would be too low for me....I was even considering 5.13 but that's not much of a leap from 4.88

Yeah I got ya....I was saying the if you go to 513s with your aw-4 automatic you'd be back to what you had when your jeep had the stick and 488s. So if that was still a little to high geared for you ...you might think about some 538s.

It changes the geometry of the rear suspension arms. It works did my yellow Jeep and most definitely hooks the rear tires better

That it will (change the geometry). Are you sill using stock (short) control arms?

I would imagine that by moving the lower arms up from the bottom to the front of the axle it would give you 2 or 3 inches on your wheelbase.... that would be great a way for someone running a lifted Tj to gain back the wheelbase lost by the lift....
Just thinking out loud here.

I dont really think that would work. Once the suspension compresses the rear diff is going to hit the tank skid unless you make additional mods.

Well that depends....your axle cleared the tank by a couple of inches when is was stock..(before it was lifted) and then when you put the lift on...say a 4" lift....your rear axle moved forward an inch or so...I think you'd be gtg as long as you don't have a huge diff cover hanging off the back.

Mine didn't. It only cleared by about an inch or so. And now with the pinion angled up the axle side trackbar mount has pretty much zero room to go back before it hits the skid.

Too bad too. I would love to stretch my WB a couple of inches but not willing to make the clearance needed to to it.
