    When are you looking to go to 37s? And if your at all thinking of 40s then just wait. I have made this mistake... and a few other i know of.

    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've been thinking about the possibility that eventually I'll end up with 40's and then I'd have wasted money on the PR44's but I've been seriously Wheeling for about 6 months and loving it, but to me, going to 40's is a huge step.... I may end up wasting money but I'm just not ready to pull that trigger.
    I think I'm inclined to go the next step, get the 37's, wheel until I'm close to needing to replace them and make the decision then on 40's. Maybe I'll be happy with 37's... And it's still a DD....

    I've got at least 6 months before I'll need to make a decision.
    Most likely during the summer when I work way to much to go Wheeling.

    I guess i made the same mistake of buying axle(s) twice. I bought 37s and ran them on my stock rubi44 for about a little less than a year, ended up bending the front stock housing. Bought a PR44 with Prosteer balljoints for my stock internals, regeared to 4.88, went to chromoly axle shafts, Reid knuckles, HD tie rod and draglink, and had the rear trussed.

    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.

    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.

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.
