Okay need some opinions:

08 Wrangler X-
35x12.50x17 BFG KM2 ( only 4 tires :bawling: )
17x8.5 american racing (thug) wheels.
Superlift 4" suspension lift
Procomp stabilizer
Banks Monster Cat exhaust

Now With those mods, my question is whats the next step. I want to do mild wheeling nothing to extreme yet. Minimal mudding, alot of trail riding but some rock crawling. I want a good median.

Do I go for more suspension goodies, more engine goodies, or aesthetics?

Any advice/help/trash talking would be appreciated.

hahaha Thanks, whats your number, I got plenty to spend. I already have the soft top and superlift discos sorry about not putting that on there.

What about headers and intakes and stuff like that. Do most jeepers look past this stuff.

IF I was in your shoe's, Sliders, Skids would be up there but not the full Skid kit.

Evap canister relo might be a good one.

locker would be good and maybe work on gearing with 35's.

Check out the AtoZfabrication sliders I hear they are pretty solid and I initially decided to order them.

my list is to get a few skids and start on gettign spare parts like axle components, drivelines etc...

Thanks, What do you mean by spare parts for the axles and drivelines. I was thinking of getting a new rear driveshaft to help out with the angle. (Je Reel 1350 or whatever) Then some upper or lower control arms for the suspension ( if i need them) and the biggest thing was axles???? Do i have to get complete assemblies or just supperior axles.

Thanks again for all the responses.

Does anyone else know different?

I've heard nothing about any Axle/Diff changes for 08,...but you no how that goes, someone else might have an answer.

the control arms help with your pinion angle as well. i'd get those, DS's, re-gear for the 35's, skids. toss a lunchbox in the front, a selectable in the rear, and you've got a great dual purpose rig. wheel the snot out of it, and go from there.

Ya I guess I will just have to call The dealership to find out. I want to put that aussie up front.

Any dislikes from these aussie lockers?

Also what do you have as your rear locker and how much did you pay.

I’m just about done with suspension and going with underbody armor next. If I were only planning on some mid wheeling I’d probably do bumpers/fenders beforehand.

If I were you I'd go with sliders, and the skid row engine, trans, oil pan skid all in one and the e-vap relo and skid. Then get a winch because if you choose skinny pedal because your stuck or think you might get stuck you can break your u-joints and axle shafts or ring and pinion, or you can say if I get stuck I'll just winch out. Winch out in the long run will be much cheaper. Although you may become the most popular guy, because you have the winch. :D
