    I love the build list, I did a similar build on a 2 dr but stretched it to 108". - the Hemi which I will get to one day. I will be watching! Fun Times!

    No, just want something that can go fast & crawl slow at the same time...anything that makes you smile every time you get behind the wheel, whether at Moab, the Rubicon, or getting beer at the local store is worth the effort...

    Ohhh...... You are going to want to upgrade the driveline to a 1410 maybe even a 1480. With all that horsepower you might just twist a shaft off the starting gate with the skinny pedal to the the floor. JE Reel will make you custom shafts. Also 4.88's are kinda small for what you are doing, given you are going to run a 60 up front and 80 in the rear you might want 5.38's. Yes you adding horsepower to make up for less gearing, but if you don't tear through a 1350 driveshaft you might just rip the gear apart.

    Are you sure the W5A580 Transmission is going to work? Are you upgrading the torque converter? That transmission is only rated for 428 foot pounds stock as is. You might have issues before even getting power to the driveshaft....

    I can go on and on with other issues you are going to possibly have but let's start here.

    Wouldn't 5.38s have more of a twist & therefore less steel?

    If he goes with a 4.88 he should have 39-08 teeth and if it is a 5.38 43-08 teeth.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
