I got by for awhile with my stock 3.73 gears and 33's. I just hit the OD "off" button every time I started it. It was the steep downhill slippery trails where I was truly lacking with the wrong gears. 4lo was just not low enough!
I plan on doing it in one shot when I'm ready. But yeah, right now the cost is the only holdup on gears and lockers. Probably just get the winch for now. Especially since I do stupid stuff like wheel alone a lot. Thanks for the input.

It's a toss up on what to do next. I bought a winch before axle, gears, and locker. You are lucky to start with a D44 in the rear with your LJ. I was not so lucky. lol
Looks like 4.88's it is then. It's got the auto. And the winch may be the next item. Def costs less than the other mods.

Right on. Thanks for the advice. So, gears and lockers next, or bumpers and winch? I'm thinking ARB's and 4.10's. Function over Form, right?

And how did you get ahold of a 2095 Wrangler? I have to know your secret. Maybe you can pick some Lotto numbers for me! lol

I think the majority of people who don't like the RE are just jealous. Lol. Unless they're running something like a currie.

RadarRob2012 Just got my 2095 LJ back today. 3.5" Rubicon Express Super-Flex Short Arm Lift Kit, RE Shocks, Quick Disconnects for the Sway Bar, Upper & Lower Control Arms, Steering Stabilizer, Adjustable Track Bar, and BF Goodrich 33"x12.50"x15" All-Terrain Tires to complete the package. Here's a few pics. I still have a ton of work to do. But I'm ready for next weekend at Yellow Jacket.
