    Wrangler 2dr Re: TJ Build/ Advice Thread

    You quite right, the TJ with its tiny wheels off the showroom floor does skew it's chances slightly. You can make a TJ extremely capable, at a fraxion of the cost of what it would take to get a JK to...

    I completely agree with Jeanís statement, as a weekend toy youíll be hard pressed to find a better off roader! No chance a JK is as capable at the TJ, not without spending HUGE moola on it...

    4.56 and 33's will be great, and you'll be able to use 4/5/6 gears comfortably. I did mine myself but would recommend using someone if you haven't set up a crown, pinion...

    Wrangler 2dr Re: TJ Build/ Advice Thread

    What gearbox do you have 5 or 6 speed?

    If 5 speed I would go 4.88, if 6 speed I would go 4.56. Mine is the 6 speed manual and I put 4.56 in, running 35's. It has treated me very well, 1st gear is...

    Wrangler 2dr Re: TJ Build/ Advice Thread

    My view is that the 3.07 ratios with 33's offroad are a nightmare, just not enough gearing low down. The rear locker does make the TJ much easier to drive on trails but I would most certainly do...

    Just to add some context to this little trip;

    I traveled the route from Kasane to Nata in early Jan, the 207 km from just North of Pandamatenga to the tar on the A33 took me just short of 7 hours...

    As mentioned by everyone above you may very well run into a full Limpopo in May. If I were you I would rather go that route than have the schlep at Beitbridge though. We did the route...
