Hey I'm in Weston. Have a TJ and haven't done much to it, but I am mechanically inclined and good with tools and willing to lend a hand.

I dont think 44 will clear with 6 inch spring over my buddy have about 7 inches soa and his 37 got in the way sometimes. Unless you plan on doing alot of trimming or buy metalcloak that may help but not sure on how much.

Ya I know the feeling, I'd be working on my jeep if a) it was warmer or b) I had more space in the garage.

Okay i understand it now so you will have about 12 inches of lift. Then you should be able to clear 44s then i thought you were only doing spring over with stock springs to get you 6 inches of lift.

Yea my stock springs were shot so I said while im replacing them might as well do a leaf lift, my jeep needs a lot of work before itll see the road again but its getting there little by little.

44s will still be a tight fit i have 18" of lift with 40s and at full flex they just clear. i would go with something bigger than dana 44s if you really want a 5.2 and that much rubber. my feep has a sbc 350 300 hp gm 1 ton 14 bolt in back and a dana 60 up front.
