      I can post some pictures of my mountain sled in the snow if you would like. It's a little too steep and deep for the LJ! I better be careful though, I think the Missoula boys are all Doo fans

        Nice LJ. Are you a member of any NEA4WD clubs? Woodstock is a short hop from Webster, MA.

          I know those guys do a lot of wheeling. The truth is I owna dairy farm, and time isn't on my side for organized wheeling. I really am not looking for any hassles either. Anytime I go somewhere with my Lj someone is crawling under it shaking his head because it isn't "hardcore" enough. You know the D44's (with 37's) are a "ticking time bomb" that haven't blown up in 6 years. Tick, tick, tick.

            I ran into a lot of this too with my TJ. When I did have time to hit the trails, I would often hear that my Jeep was too nice - although my Jeep would go everywhere the cut up, body-armored rigs would go and ride home at 75 MPH like a dream - and the sides of my tub wouldn't be covered in mud thanks to the wide HL flares.

            There is a large contingent in the Jeep community that thinks that a "real" Jeep has no fender flares and armor on every exterior inch of the vehicle. I caught a lot of grief for my HL Kit. I constantly heard that the HL fenders and flares were a liability, as they would crinkle if I struck a tree. I would then explain that's the idea behind the kit and OE style components. What a lot of these guys don't understand is that their big, beefy steel fenders are not designed to absorb any force in an impact. During a forward strike with these bolt-on steel fenders, all of that energy transfers straight through the fenders into the vulnerable firewall. Oh well, to each their own.

            I would note that I think Ben ran 37's on D44s with Brutal and it's 6.4L Hemi. ...so I think you're good. From what I have personally seen, the guys running 37s break axle components due to bad driving habits (namely, excessive throttle and wheel hop).

              Mine had 170K with 37's the whole time only blew up the rear once.

                Jason, I was thinking about your D30 ticking time bomb post from years ago! Tick tick tick.

                    I enjoy some difficult trails, but I refused to make it a trailer queen. Mine is a daily driver with over 193K. I've upgraded the axles as I've needed to - Superior evolution rear shafts(due to bent axle on 1side) and matching fronts( broke short side +-85K/ long side worn after 150K) 4:10 original gears/ front locker - replaced 1 broken rear locker with factory replacement.

                    I recently posted my JK flare higline here. I read so much about production ending and lost flare molds...

                    Again, nice rig - one to be proud of.
