New and saying hello

Hi everyone, my name is Jordan...new to the forum and thought I would introduce myself and show a few recent pictures of my Jeep. I'm always trying to learn, and look forward to mixing it up with you guys (and girls?).

Anyways, I have a 1995 YJ 2.5

Specs:
Dana 44 F/R, 5.13, Grizzlys front and rear
SOA on stock leaves --> Need a traction bar asap!
Full cage


Thanks!

How do you like the 35's with 5.13's?

They're really nice, very close mathematically to stock, and the drive is very similar, too. I would probably go 5.38s if I was to do it again, only because I don't much care to go above 55-60 mph anyways.

How are the 5.13's on the highway? Do you live in a hilly area?

I do not live in a hilly area... Iowa isn't too impressive in that respect. It does fine at highway speeds, very similar to stock. 5th isn't too useful for hills below 50-55mph, but fine for maintaining speed on flats anywhere from about 45 and up.

Okay thanks. When I ever go to SOA with new axles I would like to go up to 5.13's. I currently have 4.88's in my D30/8.8
