I hate when old people poke me at weddings, point and whisper, "You're next." So I've started doing the same thing to them at funerals

Do you swap speedo gears when you do that? I probably would be swapping them. It's like 3 minutes of work, in the dark, blindfolded, with one hand tied behind your back.

I'm also waiting to see the link for those backup lights. With 3% light transmittance through the back window and 5% through the rear side windows, I need as much light baking up as possible at night.

Would you happen to know what speedo gear is recommended for 265/75/16 and 3:55's?

I SERIOUSLY need to regear my Jeep. My stock 3.55s and 31" tires just are not cutting it anymore.

When I regear, I already talked to Kolak, gonna go with some 4.56s gears

So I'm looking at zjs on Craig's list. And I think to my self. Am I the only one that hates the tan orvis interior? I'm a big fan of the agate or grey whatever is in the other models. Am I the only one? Lol

Not off the top of my head but there are plenty of charts available. Your tires calculate to 31.65" in diameter. Check the manufacturer's site for their measurements. They should tell you the diameter because each brand measures sizes slightly differently. Anyway, knowwhere2jeep.com has some of the best deals on speedo gears and has charts available for reference.

And the 96 Orvis has the best Orvis interior IMHO.

Nope, they screwed up the 96 by putting in the black dash. 97 was better when they went back to tan. But IMO, the 95 Orvis still has the best interior. That color scheme just fits better with the hard-edged older interior:



I still want to buy one at some point

I'm kinda torn on the Orvis thing, TBH. It's hideous, but it's so ugly that I love it anyway.

That's what zjs are. There so ugly that you hate them. Until you own one and your like. Woah. I love this I want another. So maybe if I bought an orvis I'd fall in love with it. Haha

I never swapped them in the first place. I still have to buy one, which I'll probably do once I put them back on for the summer.

I'm running 32s on 3.55s. It's no fun. I'm trying to find a parts ZJ to get 3.73s and a V8 from. So far, no luck.

Yes. You are the only one. I love the Orvis interior. It's the only tan interior I've ever liked.
