Upgrade Questions
I'm a fairly new TJ owner. I've already put on a 3" lift with 33" tires. I'm looking to make some upgrades to my TJ - first and foremost, I'm planning on winch and new front bumper. I do some wheeling in the George Washington National Forrest and I'm trying to consider some upgrades that would make my jeep a better offroad jeep. I'm not mechanically savvy and I'm not willing to empty the bank yet.

So my question is, what would be some of the more common upgrades at this stage? And what are disconnects?

welcome to the forum

disconnects are for the front sway bar. they allow the front axle to flex further away from the body, keeping the tires in contact with the ground for traction.

I would suggest disconnects and then maybe a locker for the front axle, since you already have the lift and tires.

Good man! Any recommended lockers? The one's I saw on quadratec were pretty pricey, so I'd have to get the disconnects and wait a little while until I could afford the locker.

I leave the recommendations for lockers up to the pros.

There are plenty of brands out there, full time locked vs selectable locking, air actuated vs manual, etc.

There are some threads around here about an Aussie locker for around 299 shipped. That is the one I have my eyes on, though it may be the end of summer or later for me.

no recommendations from the pros?
