    Edit: re-read some of this thread. If you're into overloading will you be looking at going bigger than a 37" tire? If not, I'd throw a Dynatrac PR44 under the front & call it a day.
    I'm running at that measures out almost right at 36 right now and I don't want to go any bigger I don't hit the big rocks too often. I mostly Overland for hunting and fishing with my family. I'll check out the pr44. Then would you suggest beefing up the rear axle at all or leave it?

    Honestly man, if you're not going to 37's I'd thrown some C gusset on that front axle and run it as is but maybe keep a lookout for a D44 Rubicon takeoff. A PR44 is great piece of mind but I don't know if its an absolute need if you stay out of rocks. The rear should be fine. A lot of guys run 37's on stock rear axles.

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.
