    Baby Goat Build up

    I have removed the guts from my Dana 30 on the TJ and sold the Aussie locker. I put the hold money on a complete set of Rubicon Dana 44 axles with the factory lockers. I am going to pick them up this weekend. So when I am through I will have a 2001 4 cyl Rubicon TJ. I already have the 4:1 transfer case. I don't know if I'll go directly to 35" LTBs or wheel in with the 33's once after I get the axles installed.

    Freeland,

    You sure you dont' want to skip this step and go straight to the d60 front with 14bolt/d70 rear?

    You know that's where you are headed eventually,....right?

    If I'm not mistaken, the Rubi 44 front axles are only 44's in the center. The outers are the same as D-30...

    Lots of fabrication to go to that big stuf and also I would need more transmission and more motor. If I ever really want that I would buy full size and go from there. The Rubi uses the smaller outers but thats not the stuff I have ever broken. I am just goin go to 35"s so it should all be good. This stuff will bolt right on. I can still use my rear and front trussess. No need for bigger brake system.

    Or, alternatively, you could say the TJ D30 has D44 outers. Depends on what variety of D44 you're talking about.

    I am getting the factory Rubicon compressors. I am getting the whole set up including the drive shafts won't need them because the rear is actually short due to the difference in the Rubi transfer case and my NP231 with just the Tera low kit.

    I have the front D44 installed al except the adjustable track bar going wait tilll I get the rear done and all wheels on the ground before I install it. I took someones word for what my front drive shaft length should be, but didnot take in consideration I had a drop transfer case kit on my four inch lift. So it is still too long luckily that can be fixed. I am going wait till I get everthing togeather so I get an exact measurement. I realize how important it is to clean stuff up after a trail ride. Mudded and rusted bolts are hard to get loose.

    I am going run 36" tires when I am finished, has anybody got experience with using extened bump stops or the hockey puck method to limit up travel to keep tires from rubbing on a TJ. Advise would be great before I go cutting fenders. You know the Goat is prestine and such a pretty ride.

    Did you get the bump stops figured out? I'm running extended bump stops in mine, no issues there, but kind of a pain to get installed. I still rub a tiny bit with a 3" spring lift, 2" body lift and extended flares.
    My flares took a beating at Slade (nothing a bunch of zip ties couldn't fix on the trail) So I'm thinking about working up something different later which would eliminate any rubbing.

    BTW, got some photos?
