    According to Adams website and the guy at my local off-road shop the adams 1310 extreme duty series are rated for 37" tires they also make the Heavy duty 1310 which is for 35" tires. My worry with going to a 1350 is that it'll make the weak spot my transfer case?

    Also I was asking about how the kit itself is and how it pairs with my other components

    Not saying it couldn't be the weak spot but I feel your axles or ring and pinion would be weaker than the T-case.

    Good choice on the long arms. You won't be sorry.

    Fast plus bumps = bent stock axle on 37's.

    Just as a fyi, if you drive fast it's not an if it happens, it's when, so just plan accordingly.

    #2 I have 5.13s in my jeep, 6 speed, 37s? whats the problem? everyone I wheel with that has 4.88s WISHES they had 5.13s... 6 speed AND auto...

    OP, I was under the impression you were asking about the Double D kit, not your plans in general.

    I have the bilstein 5100s on my jeep , skip the truss, C-gussets are NEEDED. the factory u-joints are 1330s, so a 1310 driveline will be weaker than stock, and a 1350 will be stronger. If you would rather break drivelines than factory axle shafts, stick with 1310 up front, if you want to upgrade your front shafts eventually anyway (37" tire, I assume you do and if you dont, you should reconsider) then go 1350. NO reason to run a 1310 rear driveline, 1350 either way...
    I was unaware that the 1310 were a downsize. But they're heavy duty I guess and Adams says they are good up to 37". I plan on switching my Adams out for 1350s. But the double cardigan is a lot stronger than the cv joint the shafts in my opinion.

    Going 1310 would decrease your current size.

    Edit: Or at least what I have been told. I have minimal experience; however, my plan is 1350.

    Long arms will really only help your on road manners. They will not give you any more flex off road. With a 4" lift, if you want the most comfortable ride and have the money, do the DD set up. I have the DD long arms, and the on road driving is incredible. You mentioned you want to run fast over bumps...long arms will help with that, but with 37s and stock axles, shit will bend and break no doubt about it...and truss will not stop that, so don't waste the money. Just know that when you're hitting the dunes or whatever you're doing.

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.
