a few questions

im trying to figure out what im gonna do with my jeep, i want to put the v8 in soon and iv got the transfercase and tranny comin, but im not sure about which axles im gonna go with yet, i guess ill try to find some dana 60's. when i do throw those on, im going soa and iv already got 4in lift springs. will that be too big you think? should i get rid of them and do like a 2.5 in lift? im gonna be running 38.5s. have any of you ever taken a loan out to modify your jeep? i think thats what im gonna try to do if the bank will let me.

Re: a few questions

First off, what engine/tranny/tcase combo are you planning on running? I think 4" lift springs are a bit much for running 38.5's. 2.5" springs should be more than enough. I'd rather cut some sheet metal then jack it sky high, so the COG doesn't raise up too much. Depending on your drivetrain setup, you may or may not have some driveshaft angle problems. I'm running about a 1.5" lift springs on my YJ, and have it setup SOA. I had some nasty driveline problems with my stock setup, so I swapped in a D300 and that took care of it. My front driveline is just about at the point of needing a CV driveshaft, but I don't run high speeds, so it doesn't come into play much.
