    i have a95 yj and getting ready to do a 4" lift and run 35" boggers. Trying to figure out if I should upgrade the stock axles i.e. Lockers diffs axles or just just buy complete new brake to brake assembly's. Any opinions on weighing out cost and durability factors either way?

    If your plans are to bog and play hard in the mud with those 35" boggers a wise choice is upgraded axles with lockers either before or after something breaks. The cost and durability will go hand-in-hand or if you want to play you got to pay. IMO upgrades from the Dana 30s will be cost-effective if you play hard.

    Thanks aggrex if I understand you correctly your opinion is to just buy comeplete new assemblies already built brake to brake and not deal with building the stock axles
