Ive seen a few comments on here about regearing once you lift over 4" on a Grabd Cherokee. But those comments, I believe, were for those with 3.55 gears and tires over 31". I have 3.73 gears with 6" of lift and 33s. Will I still need to regear or will I be ok with what I have? This will mainly be used for the beach and the street. Not much of anything else.
^^This. I feel a loss of power pushing 31's with my 5.2. ZJ's are already fairly heavy, add the extra strain of those 33's, and your smaller motor and I bet youre really feeling a decent loss of power. Its not mandatory by any means but you will notice a huge difference in power/performance if you re-gear deeper. 4.88's are the deepest you can go in that D30.
Thanks for the input guys. I'm probably gonna do this once I get some more money flowing. I'm currently trying to straighten out some things from the previous owner. I gotta do motor mounts, front pinion seal, front t/c output seal, valve cover gasket, a radiator, and I'm waiting on my adj long arms. I also have to fix a flickering dash light problem that's driving me crazy at night. I may also have to put a new front axle housing in it since someone decided to wring one bolt off and cross-thread another. Considering all this tho, I think I got a decent deal. $1800 and the interior is almost flawless and the exterior has no damage whatsoever. Not to mention the wheels and tires and the half**s lift that's on it. Work in progress.
