I have had a few different exhausts. I now have true dual exhaust that exit in front of passenger rear tire.

A. Lot. You're gonna end up having to dump at least $5K to build a stout 4.7L, without even adding any forced induction or including labor if you can't do it yourself. You might be able to source up an old Kenne Bell supercharger kit, they're fairly inexpensive now(~$2000), but super hard to come by since they're not being produced anymore. There's not a ton you can do past slapping them on, and driving it, either.

Good choice on the DS, Tom Woods makes the best stuff.

You should be alright if you don't bury it in mud/snow. They're not super strong diffs, but just be smart about it.

I had a TJ Rubicon that was lifted 4" with a skyjacker kit, I had a tom woods rear driveshaft on that and it was the single greatest improvement I ever made to it. Cake to install, as well.

Mine's not lifted, it's on stock height upcountry springs that I want to get rid of. I'd get rid of that budget boost if I were you, and just run the factory rubber isolators(get fresh ones), it should ride softer.

i have to keep the bb to clear my tires or ill be wacking the body even more im gonna put new rubber isolators and put em with the bb doesnt have to ride perfect just like it to be a little softer ride lol

yah i love the tom wood shaft just they undercoateed it and did not prim and then do it i had one end on jack stand while installing and peeled bad and its peeling away on the yoke end around u joints so it looks like crap im gonna sand prime then undercoat it again will look good again but for the 700.00 for sye conv. kit and driveshaft dont think i should be redoing the finish on it....im gonna get the front one when i get the chance and have some extra cash.

also is it possible to just put a wrangler 7" spring to get more out of lift then i could do away with bb suck because i could have just done that in the first place
