What are your end game plans? 33's? Armor? Towing a wheeling trailer? Mountain highway?

^^this, need more info on future plans. Don't regear twice.

If youre sticking with 31's, I'd go 4.10s. If you're keeping stock axles, it would be stupid easy to swap in 4cyl axles to get here. Were it me, I'd get an 8.8 with 4.10, a front hp30 from a 4 cyl with 4.10s and swap those in. Could be done cheaper than paying for a regear and you get a much stronger rear axle.

id like to end up with 33s but that would be after I do a 8.8 swap. It will be a daily driver, no towing, but there will be highway driving.

4.10s, then you can swap in the 8.8 later without redoing the front axle. The 4.10s would be good with 33s too.

4.10 = 70mph 2500rpm, 17.5 mpg (Highway). I swapped in a D30 from a 4 cylinder and a 8.8 with a LSD. It is a lot cheaper and easier than regearing a axle.

Just noticed you have the 32rh, I assumed you had an AX15, that changes my answer.

4.10 are a little too much without an OD for 31s IMHO.

3.73 would probably be better, will put you a little under 3k @70.

Sorry, I need to learn to read more closely before I post.

I wish I had a ax-15 in there. The only reason its an auto is because it was the right price for a project wrangler for me. And alright that sounds good.

I have 3.73s, 31x10.50s, and the AX15. Its about perfect for daily driving and cal pull 70 on the freeway easily. I dont know much about the auto trans, but 33s, the auto, and 3.73s would seem to be a good fit after calcing it out.

Well this explains a lot for my set up! I'm running 33x12.5 with the Peugeot BA 10/5 (rebuilt) & the stock 3.09 gears being pushed by the 4.2L.....takes for friggin ever to get up to 60 & then starts dropping at the incline of a kid's bicycle ramp!

I have a 93 auto that was stock with 3.07 gearing. I regeared to 3.73 and am running 33 inch tires and think that I have the gearing perfect. It is snappy off the line without winding out too much at higher speeds.

I don't even go into 5th gear with my set up and it most definitely isn't 'snappy' off the line. I d@mn near stall out when I take off at stop lights and have to whined it out before up-shifting. Would like to upgrade the gearing but have dumped so much $$ into the rig lately that it will have to go on the back burner for the foreseeable future.
