    Nice Jeep. I would install either the ZJ conversion tie rod or the Currie Currectlync. The factory tie rod bends easily, surprised yours is still intact.

    What gears are you running and what transmission?

    Stick with 33s unless you want to open the wallet real wide. An x is rolling on what, a D30/D35 combo? Have you already done axle upgrades?

    I’d vote, but I’m not sure what you’d need 35’s for. Give me some more info about your Jeep; driving habits, kind of wheelin and location and I can cast a more informed vote

    I'm looking at upgrading
    I'm looking at upgrading to the pr44's or g2 44's and beefing up all linkage.

    3 mile commute to work and eastern ky off-roading (mud, hills, rocks, creeks, fallen trees and maybe the occasional jeep jamboree) future upgrades will be aftermarket 44's with arb's unsure gearing and upgrading all linkage, also river raider snorkel and maybe a little further down the road the r2.8 Cummins

    35’s.

    You could go with 33’s or 35’s. If 35’s get a 1” Body Lift, better brake pads, upgraded axles and regear when you lock,
