Are you going to be doing a stretch to accommodate for those axles? Possibly swap over to a fuel cell as well!?!?!

Haven't even thought about it yet. Need to chat with my mechanic when the time comes...all I know is I know me, and I'm going to rebuild eventually.

No no...I won't build her that big. Really anything over 35's is too big for what all of my friends do..and I love my friends. You go too big and it takes the challenge out of it. Anything bigger than 35's and you need to go to the Hammers to get your rocks off... No thanks. I may go 35's and that's it. She's my DD. Just need/want her stronger is all.

There are a lot of things to consider when going 60s. It's kind of over kill unless you're running 40s bombing through the desert going 80mph king of the hammers style, but that's just me.

Not really..Talked to my guy about 44's..he said just go 60's..44's are better but they still snap often..I've personally seen my share over the years with guys running 4.88's, 4.1 and 35's..some of the stuff at JV (not the Hammers) still warrants a stronger axle...There's alot of stuff at Cougar Buttes that can destroy a 44.

I guess I'm just used to my friends JK.with the way his rear suspension is set up it makes everything extremely forgiving. He's running 40s on chromoly 44s and has never broken anything, but this is just 1 person out of a while ton. I'm not going to tell you to not go 60s because they're incredible axles, definitely way stronger than 44s, they just take a lot of work to run properly from what I've seen.

That's waaaaay too fancy for me! I've actually been considering swapping in a YJ dash into my TJ...I just love the simplicity of it. Not to mention those giant gauges look awesome!

It's the Nissan/bMW dealer. I bought my Infiniti in Oxnard and there is no dealer here. I have to go to Nissan for service.

I always buy my tires from a local independent store. Nissan had a deal so I did it here. Never again!

Of course you will. You should hold it over the dealer's head for free stuff.

I'll keep that in mind. My first response is usually to chew someone's ass in these instances. Owning a business has jaded me a bit
