90 YJ 4.2 5 spd
Yeah can change gears, will lose top end but doubt yah care lol. Changeing gears isn't cheap have to do both front and rear. As to what size is up to you and what RPM you want to be at there are gear charts all over the net. If staying with 30's 4.10 may be what your after I dont know what you have cause 3.73 could be ideal also.
Jeep what else matters.
Is your engine running okay? I'm running 31 inch tires with 3.07 gears and I have no complaints about second or third gears. Only fifth gear feels a little sluggish on long hills on the highway.
