Wow, ive just got a 4banger and i still use 5th with my 33's. Granted ive got a top speed of 65ish and i hafta use 4th to maintain speed up hills. Id just think that with a 4.0 that you shouldnt be havin any real problems. Certainly regearing is an option, one thatll cost a couple hundred. Or you could try my route, im replacing all my ignition components with racing equipment and im gonna try out a K&N air filter and see if i cant squeeze just enough extra ponies out of my engine so that i could keep it in 5th uphill

kygreenYJ, what is your top speed in 4th? JW b/c soon I'm gonna be running 33s with 3.07s for a while until I regear and I'm gonna be using it on the highway some. Depending on what kind of driving you do (daily driver/highway/offroad) you should be lookin at 4.10s or maybe 4.56s if youre gonna be taking it offroad alot.

its only been a day but last night i was getting maybe 70's past 3000 rpm in 4th (keywords i think) so 33s might be kinda not fun for they highwya with 3.07s but for aroudntown you should be alright. im thinkin i might do 4.10s ne1 know how much it might cost to get that set up?

In my 93YJ I run 4.10 gears with 33's and a sixer... I've got up to 110 in it when I was following my friend in his car.

There comes a time... In every mans life, when decisions... have... to be made. Whether to toil, to labor, or just plain piss your days away.

You went 110? why would anybody want to go that fast in a YJ? They are not race cars, and with any lift or bigger tires they are a roll over just waiting to happen!

I just did a 3" lift with 33s and wow, it looks cool as hell but man does it suck to drive. I have a 4.0 so its hurtin' pretty bad. I think comfortabley you can run about 60 on the highway without over rev'in the engine. Does anyone know the complete cost to do a regear to 4.10s?? I really want to do this mod sooon!! Also whats the difference in 4.10s and 4.56s? accelration? top speed? torque?
thanks

before I blew my 4.2 I could stay around 70 if it wasn't too windy out on lever ground. If it was uphill I would run 4th between 60-65. Hey Jeepn87, my 4.2 topped at around 69-72 in 4th at about 3,000. I think the 4.0 I'm putting in will be better. EVen if it's the same on the highway I'll be happy. It'll give me more acceleration and better fuel economy.
