Thread: V8 JK owners

    V8 JK owners

    Are there any members on here that have v8 repowered JK's?
    Am wondering what where the needed mods to run the setup. Like is it best to start with say a Rubi to get the better axles, or it don't matter since they all need to be swapped out because of the V8, etc.

    I have a 6.4 hemi JK. I started with a rubicon but eventually swapped out the axles with prorock60's with arb lockers so the only rubi part on it now is the tcase. This also gave me an excuse to go upto 40" tires
    The driveshafts are 1350 cv's.

    So the rubi axles will hold up with the v8? Dont plan on running 40's..wife still need to get in the truck.Thinking 35 maybe 37.
    Did you do the engine install?

    The rubi axles did hold up and i did wheel it with them on there with 37's but was a bit cautious/nervous so i swapped them out to the prorock60s. I was present for the engine conversion.
