'Nother question guys.

I'm doing tons of research now as I save up for the lift and tires (looks like tax season). It seems like the more I read the more I see people saying that 35" and 37" tires destroy the mechanisms of the Jeep. My question is, if I end up going 35" or 37" what will I need to upgrade to make it a safe daily driver? I want to compose a list of components so I will know how much I am going to be spending. Thanks again guys for your help! 8)

Check out BDS lifts. Get a 3 inch lift and upgrade to the fox shocks, 35" tires that will keep you at minimum  component's. That's what I have and haven't had any issues  (knock on wood ) running it for a few years now  oh and don't forget the stabilizer shock as well

Thanks, I'm looking into BDS and AEV lifts. I read this from another forum:
"Even with 35s you'll be chasing the weak link all the time, just to get it to drive halfway decent on the street.

I'm running 35s on the d44 front and didn't want to wheel it until I replaced the ball joints, installed c gussets, truss and sleeves. Upgraded ball joints helped handling on road a lot, even with only 5k miles. Tie rod, track bar, and track bar/sector shaft brace were a huge help in handling as well. I'm still running factory axle shafts so I'm always conscious of that off road. "

Was seeing if that had any merit.

I don't have any of that done in mine and been good, not that those things aren't on my list as well. If you can get it all done then great but you don't have to and still wheel without worrying

Thanks for your help Mike. Tax season can't come soon enough!

Till then, got 20% tints all around, grille inserts and ordered Bartact seat covers and grab handles.  :)

Cheap things but important front lower control arm skid plates and in the rear the shock mounts. There cheap and an easy install and those spots get hit all the time
