    I had EVO Manufacturing weld on the C gussets when I had them do the gears last year, they also put on the lower control arm skids.
    It does great up through the 7 rated trails. We did Sledgehammer in Johnson Valley earlier this year, it's an 8-9 and it needed the winch about 3 times. We're doing the Dusy-Ershim in September, it's 7-10 and I wanted more belly clearance to reduce the winch time.

    Gary I'm with you on needing more clearance than 35s on a 3.5. Personally I'm going 37s first, then I'll decide on whether lift height needs to increase. I've got some aftermarket axles, but even so I have always avoided the 40s thought process because I don't want to start wanting an ls swap. So yeah unlike most I could maybe see the need for 5.5" of lift. I actually think the smaller the tire the bigger lift you need.

    That all being said, I would say do 37s and 6paks first, see where that gets you. While doing so you can work on getting all the travel you can out of your setup, down to 1 or 2" bumpstop.

I switched to 37’s and have had them for about 8000 miles, and had no problems with ball joints. I usually run trails that are rated 6 or 7 in Moab or Sand Hollow and go to each location at least twice a year. I also tend to run more difficult trails in Arizona on a semi weekly basis. I have had more trouble breaking shock mounts than with Ball Joints,
    Pretty impressive. I just hope to get 20k on my synergies.

    I was running MTr-K 37’s that would not balance and a badly bent tie rod. So the added stresses could have led to the early demise of my factory joints.

    Well. Go have the Genright Elite suspension put on. It will give you a tummy tuck. Heck....it’s only money ....and lots of it. It you will get that belly clearance and keep it low.

    Lol, I think that kit may cost me half of what I own if you know what I mean! That's way more then I'm willing to spend!
    I'm happy with one step at a time.

    I have 4.5 with 40s running the overline fenders. I would not recommend 3.5” lift unless you want to restrict turning angle.
