what gear ratio do you run
 
i wanted to know what gear ratio that you guys run and what size your tires are. and how do you like it on the highway and on the trail.
and i also wanted to know what companies make a good ring and pinion for the Chrysler 8.25

nolanbalzarini 10-18-2013 07:42 PM

really, nobody know what gear ratios they have and how they like them :confused:

Just ordered 4.56s for my 35s! I'll report back after install.

We put 4.56's in MOBBiN's XJ and he has 36" tires. Works dang good. I have 4:10's and 38" tires. I need a little more gear. Going to try 5.13's for next summer.

I run 4.88s with 35s and the AW4 and it works fine but I would go deeper if the d30 could go deeper. It is not my DD so highway MPG doesn't matter to me.

nolanbalzarini 10-19-2013 10:27 AM

i think i am gonna run 4.56 with 33 inch tires, because i want the crawls speed but i dont think 4.10's will offer that

LukeADukes 10-19-2013 11:21 AM

Stock with 31s but mines pushing 200k miles and i'd hate to drop too much $ into it when i'm looking for a YJ to tinker with. I'd like to do my father's same setup just with a better kit and 130k miles but he doesn't give a damn about gears and thinks they're a waste of money.

Mine are stock 3.55 gears with 33s.

Would really like to jump to 4.56 or possibly 4.88.

LPD30 needs a new carrier for those gears. My dillema is do I really wanna regear and lock my LP and call it good or do find a cheap HP, build it with gears and Aussie or such, and swap it.

You can only polish a turd so much. That's why I didn't bother swapping a hp in.

Pssh I've only blown up my HP 30 around 3 times.

98muddyjeep 10-22-2013 05:25 AM

I'm running 4.10's its 33's and I am close to stock my speedometer is only about 3 mph off actual speed it is my dd with 239.674 miles.

cbenez1 10-22-2013 07:34 AM

3.73's on 32's but it's manual trans (more forgiving). Decent set up. Slightly steeper gears would be better.
