New Jk on 40's

I have recently been blessed with a new job that is 1 hour from beach and I am in the persuit of a used jk. My ultimate goal is to have a set up similar to Hitmoneys. I want to run 40's and use it for Trail riding and trips to the beach. will not be driving further than a few hours from home but would still like to have be able to drive 65-70 mph without feeling like im strapped to a M1 tank. I am new to this forum and to the jk's. With this in mind what would be the best set up to accomplish this. axles, gears, clutch, performance, suspension lift the whole nine. I know this is alot but i desperately need some info because asking the people at a place like 4 wheel parts is hopeless in my past experience. any and all comments are more than welcomed even the ones that say im stupid. Thanks in advance

I think you need to open up with how much are you looking to spend?
Do you plan to do it in stages?

in my opinion the best thing you can do is just get involved in the community. If you're going to do all of those changes to the rig, get the most stripped down basic X model you can find and then just get involved in the jeep events and community. right seat with people when they wheel and ask people to take you for a ride around the block so you can see how different setups handle. keep an eye on what new mods guys are doing and keep track of what you like, and what you dislike and then decide how you want to build your rig. Ultimately, you're the one who has to drive and wheel it, so set it up the way you figure out that you like. Don't rush into it and feel like you've gotta build some bad ass jeep overnight. take your time, and enjoy the mods as you get them done. rushing is a good way to make sure you end up replacing new parts when you decide you like something better. I know that's a pretty generic response, but it's the best approach in my opinion.

I definitely agree on the budget info. That could mean the difference between you buying a new/used rubi and building those axles for 40's in stages. Understanding that, if you have the money, it would definitely be ideal to just purchase a base model (X) and sell the d30's out from underneath for some D60's or ProRock44 set ups. You can fit the 40's running only a 3.5" lift and the right bumpstop length, so from there you can decide wether to go LA or a simpler mid arm lift. There are plently of threads you could search and all the details will be given such as the type lift, sleeves, gears etc that the builder chose to use. PlanMan is definitely the guy to talk to if you want to stay with a LCG build but my advice would be to just search the threads for a bit. Regardles...welcome to JKO and good luck.

Here are a few build threads for 40s:

Mine:
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28802

Co4lo:
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11943
Then,
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=21753
Then,
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=40247

fourpln:
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=35749


And a whole thread of people on 40s:
https://www.jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=29090

What you can do with the thread of people on 40s is select the screen name of the poster (in the left column).

Then, select "View Public Profile."

Then, on their Profile page, select the "Statistics" tab.

Then, select "Find all threads started by ________."

This will complete a search for all threads started by the poster in the thread of people on 40s. Most of them have one or more threads about their builds.

This will give you an idea of what people have done.

In stages

Yes I'm gonna do it in stages but need to know the what order would be best. Right now money is not a option but acourse doesn't mean I won't to waste any money getting something that is overkill or not necessary to have. Thanks for all the comments this will definetly help
