With the body shop swamped with deer strikes, I’m taking the Rubicon to our shop for a radiator, skid plates, body armor, etc. I have a Champion aluminum radiator and TNT Customs tube fenders, rockers, rear corners and belly armor, plus Daystar 1″ body lift/body mounts and 1″ lifted motor mounts. I also have a Daystar transmission mount that will go on with the TNT Customs high clearance transfer case cross member.
Discussions around the shop seem to be leading towards 37″ tires and the necessary suspension and axle upgrades to support them for a driver that is typically not heavy-footed. I never broke my YJ Dana 30 front/Ford 8.8 rear with 35′s, XCL coil overs and ARB Air Lockers, so I’m
thinking hoping I can make the TJ Rubicon axles live through 37′s. With that in mind, the 1″ body lift and about 2″ of suspension may give enough clearance. That’s the working theory for now.
