You already paying Stan's crew P&L for new shafts and gears so that's a wash...you'll need new lockers and set of hubs and I'm sure ball joints, seals and other rebuild stuff like that along with new mounts but you'll stand to gain so much at such little expense... plus you can sell your d44's to cover the ticket I'm sure....
Just a thought...

Hi Steve.
This is really going to stretch the budget as is. I can't do any work myself. I have so many wants for this jeep I will be going to stans till I die. My wife is ok with it as long as we don't bust the budget. I'm going to have to wait for a bit on tons and 40's. I might save up and do Rock Jocks like stan has or Dynatracs later if I find i'm getting stuck from clearance. This poor thing has 500 miles on it and I am shredding the warranty to bits. LOL if I pop something it is gonna cost me a small fortune.

I understand your position.... I was just trying get people to look outside of the "off the shelf build" box. There is much less expensive ways to put 60's under a jeep. I read somewhere that JPI's slogan is " if you can dream it we can build it"....so I was thinking maybe you could have them build you a set axles instead of just buying you a set..

So anyways what gears are you gonna run with the 37"?

I thought 13's but stan is saying I really want 88's with this trans. Much lower first gear and a way higher OD. .85 vs .69 for the TJ. I know it would be maybe cheaper but I would want to do something with the newer style high clearance cases. And I would still have to pay someone to make them up and warranty them. That all costs money. I don't doubt they could build it but just how much better would it be? By the time I do bigger thicker tubes, upgrade C's, ARB's, RCV's, shave. I'm looking at a ton of bucks. If I still had my old shop I would jump on it in a heartbeat. I could do all that right there.

We can and have done builds with "yard" axles, but our feelings is when a new vehicle comes to us, the customer always wants new parts, not wrecking yard. And in addition to that, most new projects are DDs, and reliability is in question, at least in the customers eyes. Also, there's the gound clearance that you gain with Dynatracs and Curries. Watch a video that dynatrac has online showing an axle build. You can't replicate the process in a shop. But yes, yard axles are great for other builds such as weekend jeeps and buggies.

Steve please don't misunderstand my wanting your input. I know your a desert rat and have lots of experience and skills. For me I did so much creative mix and match when I had my own engine shop. Chevy rods in Ford motors. Olds rods in Chevys. Infinity V8 heads on ford blocks and it just goes on. I guess I am tired and just want nice shiny new stuff that someone else works on. Plus I am really disabled and a bad experience on a trail would put me in the hospital or the ground. No more Big Bear for awhile, I had serious problems. I just don't want to take more chances on getting home than I have to. I come on here and Bench Race. Throw out ideas. Listen to others. Some of it sticks and some don't.

Sounds to me your Jeep needs an air suspension if they make such a thing for JK, your back will thank you for it and some top of the line super padded suspension seats

I would like to have Stan put in one of these. The Goliath KluneV. A 2.72 to 1 add on crawl box. It will give me a 1 to 1, 2.72, 4, and 10.88 to one choice. I can't get an atlas 4 speed for my trans only the normal atlas and I want to have it all. So I would need a shorter rear and longer front shafts by 6.26 inches. Plus mounts and other custom work. Might cost some cash but I wanted a 4 speed so bad and Advance said they don't make it for mine. I know more weird stuff. But 2.72 for trails and sand, 4.0 for rocks and 10.88 for when I am hurting and want to go slow over rocks without crashing.

Klune goes between trans and transfercase is a pretty stout lil gearbox, you would call it a doubler

Oh by the way. Geri and I took the new JK up to the speed limiter in the dirt. Banged it right off the 100 mph stop. I'll be posting a video later. We have in car and on the lakebed.

Well....I couldn't wait any long and hadn't heard anything from are local guy so I ordered up myself a set of ORI's struts....if you haven't heard of them their awesome....with the strut you don't need bump stops... limiting straps....and they won't unload on you like coils/coilovers do. Plus they are smaller in diameter so they need less room...
I'm in the process of linking the back of my Yj and installing a built 9" rear axle and these are the last of the hard parts needed for the build....all that is needed now is time....come on wishbone...lol
I'm totally stoked and wanted to share.

Sounds like you're gonna be busy, I'm gearing up to swap a TJ tank in my JK to gain a couple inches of belly clearance.
