Take a few steps back, do some more research on other forms (although there is definitely great knowledge here on NOVA Jeepers) and map out your upgrades.

Will do! Thanks y'all

No problem bud. Hopefully everyone's comments/input were informative and not taken in the wrong context. No one wants to see anyone get in over their head.


Long story short... It's best to plan honestly about what you really want to do to the Jeep. It's always more expensive to do it the second time than it is to do it right the first time.

So I'm re-gearing to 5.13 with a Detroit locker on the rear.ill also install a 4 inch Rough Country lift since I don't do much off-roading and I was wondering what's the best tire size to go with them. 08 Wrangler Manuall transmission so 3.8. & 6 Speed. The shop was recommending 37 or eve 40 but I wanted to stick to 35 or 37 at the most. They'll be mounted on my Rubicon rims so would that cause any problems?

What shop would ever recommend going 40s, unless you're actually going to run Dana 60s and wheel it??  They're giving you very poor advice, so I would proceed with caution.  Even running 37s, without the supporting mods, will cause significant drivetrain wear.  If I were in the same situation, I would run 35s and go either 4.56 or 4.88 for gearing.
