I have plans on lowering it back down to original as I don't do rock climbing. I'd like to drive it to work every now and again. Having a 4 foot ground clearance gets rather old when trying to get in and out of that Jeep. Need to replace the rear axle as it's terribly loose. Not sure what the going price is for a decent used rear axle. Dana 30/35 limited slip.
If you aren't going to wheel it hard with big tires, it should be easy enough to find a replacement D35 for cheap - lots of folks throw them away as they upgrade, but as long as you are nice to it, it will not let you down.
Big Blue buried in a thick layer of Lake Effect snowfall. We had an average 22.5 inches of snowfall on the ground on this day. We received a good foot of snowfall in a 24 hour period. It was tough sledding in my rear wheel drive pickup.
