    Nice design. That would look mean with some sort of tube/flat fender similar to the popular design on tj's.

    I think that's the most I've ever seen a fender trimmed. What's the plan from there?

    Looks like like some good plans. Looks like it will be a good outcome. What vehicles did you get the axles from?

    44 out of a 1980 f350
    14b out of a late 70's chevy i believe.

    they both have 4.10's and thats what will stay in them for right now.. i will regear later to 4.88 or 5.12, budget just doesnt allow it right now

    d44 will get lockright
    14b will get welded

    14b has disk brake coversion

    anything bigger than 38s is pushing the practicality of a rig. i dont think there are significant advantages to the extra 3 inches or so 44s would offer...shits so heavy and clumsy at that point. look at what cam and hundreds of others acomplished on 37s... besides hitting shit is part of the fun.

    Damn you went Cbasset on that fender trim.

    37s and 38s will teach you a lot as a driver. There are definitely some trails that are possible but become a huge challenge with just 37s, especially on a large rig like a ZJ. But then of course there were certain trails that a non-sticky 37 would just not climb, regardless of how hard I hit them.

    just because your jeep is on 32s there is no need to bash those who go bigger
