This is the only style that I would ever consider putting on my Jeep. The Hummer H1 has a similar setup.

I'd give a +1 for RE springs. I have their 2.5" springs, and am very happy with them on road and offroad.

First, what size tires do you want to run, and what will you be doing with your Jeep?

Many of us happily run our Dana 30s with chomoloy shafts with 35s. (with the larger U-joints)

I don't see the Dana 44 as a worthwhile upgrade - it has the same U-joints as the Dana 30. That's an...

Adding a stronger bumper would be a good start, but would only be half of the equation.

The other half is welding in frame tie ins on both sides.

The rear frame member is extremely thin and...

I'd go for the minimum lift necessary for the tires that you want to run, and depending on what you will be doing with your Jeep.

4.0-4.5" lifts will put a ton of stress on your drive train, which...

I was happy with my BFG ATs, when I had them.

You could also look at the Goodyear Duratrac. It's a little more aggressive looking, but still an AT.

Pick up an older TJ for $7K. I would only buy a 4.0L engine.

The 2.5L Jeeps will be cheaper, but you may regret buying it.

The one that you get will be about 15 years old or more...which...

You will need a transmission out of a 4x4 vehicle. Then you will also get the matching transfer case. You will also need an ECU from a 91-95 XJ or YJ.

91-95 4.0L engines make the best donors

Definitely pass...and look for Jeeps with the 6cyl 4.0L engine.

You won't regret buying the 4.0L engine.

There is a good chance that you WILL reqret buying the 2.5L engine.

+1 for buying and reselling

I did the 2.5L to 4.0L swap in my 1995, and the power increase is great. It is expensive and a ton of work.

If you want to do the swap, it would be best to get a...

I have the Bestop unit. It provides a nice storage area for a tool bag and small gym bag.

And I love the fact that it doesn't require another key.

Just make sure that you get an AX15 with an external slave cylinder (1994 and later). Earlier AX15s with internal slaves aren't reliable and can be a PITA.

All this talk about posilock cables is ridiculous.

As suggested, get some jack stands and get under your Jeep. Something else is going on.
