If you want 6'' of 'suspension' lift....Long Arm.

Neither of those. Just my $.02.

Long Arm X 3

Rubicon Express or Rock Krawler

Tazman2 08-14-2008 12:08 AM

what would be a good long arm kit

distortedtj 08-14-2008 12:12 AM

what size tire you wanting to run?

Tazman2 08-14-2008 12:16 AM

i would like to run 35-37 size tire mostly 35's

tazmann910 08-14-2008 12:32 AM

Rubicon Express long arm or build it yourself.

AzTJ 08-14-2008 12:39 AM

5.5" Rock Krawler X-Factor Long arm...

but you might want to look into new axles before the kit. The D35 behind your 4cyl won't last above 33" tires.

im getting a set off d44 front and 60 rear and i also have an i-6 getting rebuilt
and and a atlas 2 t-case all waiting to be put in.

tazmann910 08-14-2008 09:28 AM

Well hell, that is one hell of a build up.

GrnTJ 08-14-2008 09:43 AM

He's getting my axles, lol. Yea man, sounds like you got a good project started.

4point 08-14-2008 09:45 AM

Sweet Taz :punk: That'll be a nice project.

Tazman2 08-14-2008 09:46 PM

yea im takeing the gloves off on this one. if im going to build a jeep i want to build a jeep. and sugestions and outputs are welcome. im going to start this project this spring. i would like to rebuild it from the groung up.

4Jeepn 08-14-2008 10:15 PM

If your going big, then go 60 front as well.

Tazman2 08-14-2008 10:54 PM

i thought about that until Grntj was selling his 44 and 60 for 300 so im going to settle with that.

i was looking at snorkles what are your guys opinion on them. keep in mind it will get used alot

distortedtj 08-14-2008 10:57 PM

Snorkles are fine if you have a need for it.

If you do plan on fording water alot you'll need to water proof the rest also...underhood electronics and exstend all your vent lines for the axles/trans and so on up to a higher level also.

Tazman2 08-14-2008 11:09 PM

is it true that snorkels are also a good sorce of cool air intake.
and for the original question would teraflex or rubicon express be a good long arm lift

some say yes the snorkle works as a CAI but dont exspect any mpg or hp improvement from it.

and...Rubicon Express is a good lift.

Tazman2 08-15-2008 12:34 AM

ok thanx if theres anything else you guys can think of that i should know you can eather pm me or just keep going with this blog:punk:

p.s. i leave for the field tomarrow morning so it might be acouple of day before i get back
so thanx for all the info.

AzTJ 08-15-2008 04:04 AM

If your thinking of running 37" tires... look into stretching it since your running 3/4 ton axles.... also, why not drop in a V8 while your at it. You can usually find a nice 5.3L out of a Chevy truck with tranny for ~$2000.... well, around here you can.

Tazman2 08-22-2008 09:58 PM

i thought about it and my buddy backhome gave me his 4.0l for my 2.5 other wise i would of gone with a 302 that my brother has lieing around but it might change between now and then so who knows. i'm looking at every possibility. plus i have about 6 months left in the army so eight months from now is when i start building. so i gotsome time yet topick your guys brains:D
