      you dont need a 4" lift to run 31"s, If it was me I would go w/ 33"s on 15x10. Other wise it would look funny, not to mention no ground clearance under the 60, did you get the z boxes as well? revolvers F&R? longer spline drive shaft? Your on the right track though, here is a pic of my 91Attachment
      What about longer shocks?

          yeah still have the the dana 35 dana 60 on the way from a wagoneer thanks to nemo's help. what do i need longer shocks for? i did order the black diamonds all the way around for the 4 inch lift does that make sense is that what you were implying? your white yj looks good. what about the shackles? i only ordered fronts do i need both front and rears?

              you can inboard the shocks, did that with my set-up they are from my old 4wd 3.5" lift kit and I'm running ~9" of lift now and I could run more and keep these shocks if I wanted too (which I dont im hella tall now)
              http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v3...p/S4021805.jpg gl with the 60, kind of overkill unless your running 35's plus imho but its ur rig

                      Sounds like a D44 to me...unless it had FF hubs.

                        I live in Moon Township. Actually Glenn Willard/Crescent TWP. It is right over the hill from you. Less than 2 minutes.

                        Ditto, They put 60s in the Rear of J20s but thats pretty much the closest a Waggy ever got to a 60. Me personally, if it was a 60, I would ditch the 60 and get 44s. With the ground clearance you lose with a 60, you need 36s or bigger to make it worth it. And a Rear D44 will hold to 37s/38s in a YJ.

                        A 60 diff cover looks very similiar to a D44 diff cover. The D44 diff cover is smaller, thats pretty much the only appearance differance. The other way to tell is, you use a 1/2in wrench to take off the diff cover bolts on a D44 and use a 9/16 on a D60

                          You don't HAVE to trim out your old fenders, but why wouldn't you? Are you trying to make room for bigger tires, or just be gay?

                            i wanted to start with a base platform get it road worthy then move up from there so i have a basis to go on. also where i am at they crack down hard on wheels that stick outside your fenders. my brothers f350 has 36 dick cepek tires on it with 6.5 inches of lift and he got fined 30 dollars for every inch he was protruding all the way around i didnt want to make the same mistake. also before i joined the forum local he say she say comments told me 31's were the biggest i could go now i know better. so i think 33' or 35's with mods down the road definitely have to have a motor swap though i only have a rebuilt 4cyc so i dont want to apply the wrong parts and break it before i can even enjoy it.
