we bought a 91 yj its in good condition with just under 100k miles on it. I sent for a copy of the build sheet and came with 3.07 gear ratio it seems a bit fast for off roading it has 285-75-16 tires with lockers in both ends. Any suggestions for gear ratios. It is not a daily driver. Thanks, Ken
congrats on a yj they are fun and are the last jeep to come with all around leafs. not a dd i would do what que said get a stronger axle for rear d35 cause if its a offroader the rear wont make it. you can beef it up with a super35 kit and always be that guy.

I'm new to the board as well. I did 4:10's with the Detroit true tracks as its a softer gentle locker. (part time daily driver) That made a bold difference and my 5th gear got better on my 33's
I bashed mine on big rocks for 3 years on stock gears and no lockers NOT FUN the lockers and 4:10's are great and I wheeled the new gears about 10 times.... then I got wind of a Belem Terra 4:1 kit half price so I bought it, then I had a buddy donate his np231 J with Slip yoke and drive line (Major score) I bench build it, but only drove it around my yard. But I can tell its going to be sweeeeet. I have to do other upgrades and smog it now so I can go play with new t-case.
My brother has 4:56 in his 91 and his first gear is very short.. he hates it but it climbs well for what it is. He put a full locker in rear and it bangs all over the place.
