    Also possible a pr44 with Rubi internals and a hi pinion Pr60FF with ARB and 5.38 setup for DTD closer to the summertime for sale.
    Both setup would be great for 37s.
    What motor do you have? 3.6 or 3.8

    I ended up breaking the ring gear in the rear about six months after i had them installed, not sure if i stressed them during the wheeling trip the weekend before it failed or the gears weren’t set right and finally failed after a the wheeling trip.

    Six months after that my front passenger side unit bearing failed, thankfully it stayed together as long as it did and the wheel didn’t just fall off.

    Attachment 289382

    In the time that i had installed 37s on my 2013 JKUR with 45k miles (June 21, 2015), i wore out the stock unit bearings and changed them out August 2015 with Timkin unit bearings. In March 2016 i had the PR44 installed and gears done and had new Timkins installed, it was in October 2016 that the ring gear failed, and it was in April 2017 that the front unit bearing failed and i replaced them with some Duralast bearings from Autozone. I felt it was unsafe and unreliable to run 37s on the 44s i had and decided it was time to upgrade. I was originally going to run 37s on the new axles, Dynatrac Hardcore Package PR60/Pro60, and even had the 37s mounted on the new wheels, but then i wheeled with some guys on 40s and couldn’t resist a sale that discount tire had on some 40x13.5x17 trail grapplers.

    If you are already thinking 40s just wait on upgrading your axles until you can do it right.
    I see you had the rear EVO truss. Is that a mod u would do again? It seems like it would mitigate the chances of the plug welds letting loose causing the pinion to point to the sky.

    It was one of those thing where the installer had one on his shelf, and was the only product i bought from him. all the other parts were sourced from vendors on here. The axle was straight when it came off of my Jeep and i sold it, so maybe it did help it or maybe it never needed it IDK.

    Depends if you want to upgrade suspension or just trim and bump stop the hell outta it. You’ll also need driveshafts which’s add about $1k or so.

    Get 37’s and wheel what you have. Just put your pennies away while wheeling 37’s and then make the jump to 60’s when you can. They won’t spontaneously blowup.

    I just thought from what I've read... that going to 37 on stock axles etc is asking to break something

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.
