New Axles?

I am starting research for building a 4 door Wrangler X. My goal is to run a 38 to 40" tire. My first delima is the axles. I was looking at the g2 axle assemblies and the price has me thinking I may build something else. The rock jock 60 was almost $7000 each. Their 44's were reasonable but I did not see an application for the jk. Any one have any other suggestions?

I have a jeep and it goes over shit.

If you want to run 38"+ tires and not brake it takes money...

You can pay for a complete ready to bolt in setup (Tereflex CRD60, Currie RockJock III, or Dynatrac ProRock 60's) that will cost you more money but be nearly bulletproof or you can try to stuff a late model 60 under there from a ford or something (good luck with brackets and ABS stuff).

I guess what I am saying is if you want the really big meats it will cost you money to do it right. I have seen guys run 40's on rubicon axles but that is a ticking time bomb in my opinion.

My long term plans are 40's with a hemi and coilovers...however due to money constraints (I spent my wad on the axles) I am running 37" tires for a while on ProRock 60's... Point here is you can put your money into the parts you will need and then save for the larger tires, awesome coil-overs, and sweet v8 etc?

I hope that was helpful to some degree...good luck finding a "cheap" axle to run 40" tires on the JK that supports all the electronic crap and easy to bolt up.
