I think we may have talked about that rig a really long time ago. Didn't you say you did not plan to use it for crawling? Because from that list of parts you have gathered, it sure sounds like you may have changed your mind.

I really don't know what it's worth. I have to do some research then figure out a fair price.

Make sure to post it up on the forum! It's a nice rig, and I don't think you will have a problem selling it! Diggin the new rig though Bob.

So a question. 37's or 40's? Stan is going to be building my Jeep up. My first plan was to do 37's, but I am second guessing myself now. Do I want 40's right out of the gate, even though it will cost more?

If you have the $14K for new PR60 axles, do 40's. 37's would be good because you can do them on the oem d44. I'm sure someone would love to get a hold of your brand new D44's.

I vote for doing 37's for a year and then selling them to me cheap so you can buy 40's.

Only $14,000 to go from 37 to 40's? That sounds like a deal! I would think it would be MUCH more...

Me too. I'm thinking I see a diesel conversion in Yella's future if I decide to go ahead. But I've been researching and I am going to spend a ton at Stan's and better be good. So it's gonna be 37's. BTW the TJ is sold and I owe Rob dinner.
