since you have the 2012 you'll be fine with 35's IMO. I'm running 37's on a 2012 JKUR although I have a 6 speed, but it's really not that bad

Since you have the axle out of the jeep you have a great oppertunity to learn on this one and save a ton of cash. You still have your jeep to drive so you can take your time on it. The only reason I haven't done my gears and locker setup is not having the time for any hickups that might present themselves that would leave be without a vehicle. I'm sure if you dive into it and post pics plenty of people would be willing to help you a long the way. I also watched this video about thirty times.

In any event, I have OX front and rear in my TJ and I absolutely love them. Just be careful how you route your cables. Good luck with your axle swap.

Yes ox makes a locker carrier combo for the prorock. I'm gonna get the one with the electronic actuator. They look awesome.

K well, payroll lady is out of my office, so the most I'm gonna be able to do tomorrow is put a deposit on the axle, then I'll have to go back to pay it off in full. :sigh: Anyways I do get my new tires tomorrow so that's good at least. With the axle the guy will throw in the gears, inners, outers, and the housing. I will need to get ball joints and the ox locker, is there anything else I'm failing to think of that I will need for it?

Here they are. We checked out the 44 yesterday. I put a deposit on it. Hope to pay it off/pick up next week.
