i havent taken any recent pics of the beast cause of college but mods are comming soon. tomorrows plans are nw rear output seal, and a super 44 with 2.5 tail pipe. as of now the plans are:

-35s
-8.8 rear
-4.56 gearing
-sye
-better amp for the 2 12's i have stuffed back there

i use this thing to go from pullman, back to seattle (300 miles) and hit the trails on the weekends. Nothing heavy just with the guys and their mostly stock stuff. Will the 35's and 456 gears work well wit the ax15 5 speed?

ya yours looks awesome bro!!!

Quick question to throw out there..
So i use this jeep as my daily driver in college. SO i use it to run over to walmart a few miles away, as well as go back home about once every few weeks, thats 300 miles away. But when i trail it i never crawl, its mostly pretty mild at most medium trails and mud. I want to throw on some 35s, but from what i hear the dana 30 sucks, and the 35 at that as well. What axels should i put in it? this is all the jeep will be used for is the trails so nothing crazy like full size, but im thinking d44 front and d60 in the rear. to ensure no breakage, and 4.56 gears. but i need to ask the professionals.

If you find like a 1997 ford explorer or up they have an 8.8 rear axle that is just as good as a 9" or 44. You could rebuild it lock it and its basically direct bolt in
