We need some Axle Suggestions....
Here's our Dilemma:
I built a 1998 TJ for my best friend. He doesn't want to deal with breakage, so he basically gave me an unlimited budget to make his stock Jeep a REAL Jeep, so long as its nearly bulletproof. To date, we started with a TJ sahara, with the 4.0 and an automatic. Its since gotten a TeraFlex 4" complete system, TeraFlex adjustable track bar, RS9000s at all corners, dual steering stabilizers, dual optimas, a Warn XD9000i, ARB rockcrawler bumpers, 33" BFG M/Ts, basically, everything we could do to make it cool, and keep it legal. The time has come when the boy is ready for lockers, and rather than invest in the stock questionably strong axles, he's willing to go custom. He does not want carnage. We have definitely decided on locking hubs in front, 4 wheel disk brakes, and detroit lockers front and rear. An Atlas 2 is in the near future as well. We're doing 3.73s because its only a 3 speed auto, and we need to keep highway ability. It is a daily dirver. I want to get him Dana 60's front and rear, basically bulletproof even to a newbie with a super capable TJ running only 33s. 35s are possibilities. Alec78CJ and Currie seem to thin Ford 9"s are the way to go due to ground clearance....what do you guys think, high pinions of course, and money is no object to this kid....what would you buy? sorry for the long post!
