Thanks,
I've been to 4 Wheel Parts many times, but was looking for a local shop.
Just looking for general 4x4 advice and ideas, right now...
I'll give Brutal Offroad a call.

Looking into lift & tire combo, for good on road manners, but also the ability to go off road on the weekends.
Later may want to add headers and exhaust system, but waiting for the stock stuff to wear out.
I'm also curious about the new flat fender options....
BTW, the vehicle is a 2005 Jeep Unlimited with a 4" lift and 33" tires.
Don't know if it would be worth the additional $$$ to do another lift and only be able to go up to 35" tires.
37" tires would probably be unrealistic for this application.
The reason is that I occasionally take long road trips back to the east coast.
What do y'all think??
Thanks,

what axles did the unlimited's come with? if it was a rubicon i'd say go for the 37's and do a hub conversion but if it has the 30/8.25 or 30/35 i'd stop at the 33's. main thing is make sure your geared for your tires so you can keep your gas mileage for the long trips

Well bring it by Tue I'm off Monday and we can work it all up... Just remind me your from Tx4x4 for the discounts I'd like to see what's on it now cause your askin a loaded question... Cause a DD Jeep with 37 is not a fun driver and one on 33's isn't a hardcore offroader so you have a fine line to build on.

Shawn, the jeep has dana 44 axles and 4:11 gears, but I'm leaning more towards 33s or 35s.....

Kling-on, I tend to agree with you about the 37s being unrealistic for a daily driver jeep....
what shop are you from? Where are you located?

Thanks,

lift for the 37's and keep the 33's for your cross-country trips.

Problem solved!

In all seriousness I had a Full-Traction Long Arm on my '03 Rubi (in 2004 - I purchased the Rubi in late '02) and loved it with 37's (37/1250/15), but I kept a set of cheapo Pep-Boys 33/1050/15 BFG AT knock-offs for most of my regular driving (It wasn't a daily driver though). The lift was a bit much for the 33's, and for the 37's really, but at the time most long arms were a bit higher than they needed to be, and the Rubi axles handled the 37's fine with Chromo shafts.

Based upon your description of 4.11's and D44's it sounds like you have a Rubi too, be careful with the front u-joints, I went to chromo after throwing a cap on one of mine, fortunately I caught it before I was doing any offroading and it didn't cost me a set of shafts, though I did relegate the stockers to spare duty. 4.11 was also great for offroad with the Rock-Trac tcase and the 37's (on my auto trans) and great for the 33's but I found it a bit lacking from 0-30mph on the road when I had the 37's on.

Stock axle gearing on a Rubi manual trans w/35's sucks balls off road. You might want to consider the cost of gearing upgrades and what that'll do to your streetablity (and budget) as well if you have the NSG370 and want to go bigger than 33's.

Nooner,
I've done the 2 sets of tires before, but man that gets expensive and storage is always an issue.
Thanks for the info about the front u joints, I haven't had any issues....(yet!!).
More than likely I'm gonna stay with the 33s.
With the price of gas going out of this world, it just doesn't make much financial sense to make the mpg drop.
And the thought of purchasing another lift, somewhere in the neighborhood of $1500-$2500, just to go from a 33 to a 35, again, doesn't seem like a wise financial decision.
Maybe, the flat fender option is where I will concentrate???
