    Moab baby!! First time out here, decided to show my better half the pretty side of Moab and take her on Hells Revenge. We had an awesome time with a great group.

    And then the phones died. It was an awesomely me experience out there, especially for being a quick day trip. We were able to be back home by 9pm after getting an early dinner in Moab.

    Opinions needed:

    I am running 35’s on my TJ now, and want to the ability to run 37’s in the future if / when I get bored.

    I’m stuck, should I just build up my Dana 30 with a truss, gussets, chromoly shafts, and re-gear to 4.88?

    Or should I try and locate a Rubi front and re-gear to 4.88?

    I do some crawling, but mostly just mountain passes and snow wheeling.

    What would you do?

    I would suggest to try and locate a rubi axle.

    I know a lot of guys that are running 37s on Dana 30 with lockers that beat on them harder than it sounds you will be doing. You’ll be fine building it

    One runs 3.73 , heavy duty u joints. He has more power though others do shafts and 4.56. 4.88 I think is the line that pinion gear becomes smaller than the shaft.

    4.88 pinion is pretty small as you can see.

    4.56 it is. When I go out wheeling I usually always challenge myself to some of the harder lines... but I am very easy on my jeep overall, and definitely don’t go crazy with the skinny pedal.

    I think the Dana 30 will do me just fine, if / when it breaks I have no issue with swapping it out for a 44... maybe even just go to tons if I’m bored.

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.
