Sorry if this is a common post just haven’t seen it recently to read comments.

Recently I purchased a 2020 jlu willys. 3.6, 6 speed. I’ve been researching lift and tire setups and to add this is obviously my dd.

Im stuck between a 3.5” Clayton overland kit, 37s, regear to 4.56s and truss/gusset my 30.

OR

2.5” Clayton overland kit, 35s and a possible regear to 4.56s and truss/ gusset the 30.

I can’t seem to go 35s for the simple fact is it’s only about 400 in total to make the jump to 37s. Hoping I can get some input and persuasion on a yes or no for either!

If you are going to regear, I would go with the look you want. personally I think 37’s look so much better.

Honestly mostly looks, I’m a huge fan of 37s idk why. But the occasional trail. I’d be mostly 90 % on road though. But I’m looking to build a dual purpose rig that way when I want to use it I can

I think he means you already answered since you are a huge fan of 37 :)
I understand now lol. I think honestly the point of my post is me hoping someone tells me it’s a terrible idea lol. I just don’t want to spend the money twice to make me satisfied

Don’t build out the 30. If you feel the need to build it out, you need a 44 or 60.
Just run the 37’s and save until something breaks. Then upgrade the axle.
I got a quote to regear and truss and gusset for 2900 parts and labor. I’m not sure what it’d be without the truss kit. Would you recommend still regearing?

Wouldnt regear right away if I were you. I'd run it until you're unhappy. That might be day one. It might be never.

The 37’s don’t really need a regear if you’re on road. You can still offroad too. Honestly, just do the lift and 37’s then wait a while. I did 39’s and straight into a regear, but in hindsight could have been fine without the regear if I wanted to save for 60’s. I did offroad it on 39’s with my stock 4.10’s and it did fine, just not ideal.
It will turn into a 5 speed, but honestly it was smoother. 1st gear was super easy to roll out smooth.
