40's

I understand the HUGE risk with running 40's on d44's, but, can you run 40"s without rubbing issues? For reference the d44's would be built up and the pinch seam trimmed.

Say a 3.5-4.5 inch long arm lift with 40x13.50r17(or18) with 3.5" backspacing?

does anyone have a pic of how far this setup would push the tires past the fenders?

thanks

Here is my initial thread of 40s on 3" springs and a 1" body lift:

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

40s on 44s isn't risky. Rather it is a certain, 100% guaranteed more expensive way to go because if it is off roaded, you will either upgrade to tons or go back to 37s. I destroyed 2 rear 44s trying to "save money" by not upgrading to a 60.

A crate rear 60 is about $3500. It doesn't make sense to put any money in a rear Rubi 44 when you can sell it for about $1500 before you bend it, break the locker, bend the rear axle shafts, and/or blow the rear ring and pinion.

40s mean upgraded driveshafts, hydro assist, a super wide front axle or increased steering radius.

Now, it is on a 4.5" long arm with Currie RJ 60s and no body lift.

If you order the crate 60's can you swap over some your stock parts or does it mean outfitting a whole new set of shafts,gears,lockers,brakes etc?

I was under the impression that you have to buy a complete assembly like a pro rock 60 ?

Thanks for the info btw

You swap over your stock brakes.

Here are a couple examples:

If you price them through Northridge or River City Offroad, you can possibly get them for less.

These are built with Currie housings. Dynatrac costs more, but it is worth it if you have the money. I understand that if built with the Mopar 60 housings they are less.
