    Yup. Spectacular. It will be interesting to see which axles you decide to go with. I'm undecided between Rubicon 44s $4k or Dana 60s $10k. I only want to upgrade once. It's too expensive to do this twice. I like how you stayed with Sport flares. European Jl's all have the same style fender flares. They are just the right height. But I think the Rubicon forgoes the 285/70R17 and gets the 255/75 R17.Screenshot_20190520-111826_Chrome.jpeg

    I actually just took the kids to Disneyland so did a roundtrip from SF-LA. For the most part I now use it as a 4 speed.

    60MPH is 4th gear unless it's totally flat or slightly downhill. Even at 70+ if it's an incline I'm in 4th.

    Realistically I'll hit the trails once a year max so I'll likely end up with 44's. I currently have the M220 in the rear, so I'm not sure if I can keep that and just buy a 44 front. But I'd like to do at least 4.88's.

    For what I use the Jeep for I would rather do 44's and a supercharger with the left over money vs Dana 60's.
