|Jhart83||Thanks a lot for all of the pointers everyone. I'll continue to look into my options with these things in mind. So it seems like since this needs to have a good level of everyday drivability the 33's are my best option. My question now would be as to my best lift option. I don't want it to appear too tall for the tires, but I don't want such a little change that it looks stock. I see a lot with 2.5" but I was thinking a 3" since I thought the added weight of the XHD bumbers would bring it down a little anyway. Am I correct in thinking this, does anyone have a similar set up that looks good and if so can we get some pics???|

there are lots of sliders with steps built in or whatever if thats your concern.

|GoldenSahara00||33s and the 3 inch. 3 inches is quite a lift for a jk. from what Ive heard. if you want to keep driveline stuff stock stay with 33s. youll still love it|

|daggo66||'07's had 4.10 gears. 35's for "light trail use?". Skip the 35's and put some armor on it.|

|tuff2010||Did it come with 4:10's??? The autos come stock with 3:73's...|

|Robbish87||For an auto 4.10 gears and 35's will be rough. If you want to save the cost of re-gearing I'd suggest 33's unless you do very little highway driving then maybe just a flashpaq to change the shift points will suffice.|

Planning on some mods this april...thought?
I just bought my newest jeep a week ago. I have plans to upgrade/mod it for light trail use. However, it is my daily driver as well. So I am looking for advice in general. Feel free to join in with advice/opinions anything really. I have a Sahara with 18 inch rims and 32"s now. Also have gears at 4.10 now. NOTE: it is an automatic trans.
Mods I know I want; Rugged Ridge Modular HXD front bumper with KC 130W lights and a center hoop and end sections, Rugged Ridge matching rear bumper with d rings, 4" oval tube steps, 17x8 w/4.75 backspacing Mamba offroad type M3 rims.
Mods I am debating on and need advice for; I would like to use the daystar 3" lift with black scorpion shocks. Hoping to fit dick cepek mud country 35's. Here is the big question.... if I do the lift with 35's will the 4.10 gears hold up fine? Also, would a better option be to do the 3" lift but go with the 33's?
