Gear ratios

I just bought a 2003 wrangler x 5 speed and don't know ratio to change gears too? It has
DANA 35/194MM rear axle
Dana 30/186MM front axle
With 3.07 gears in my jeep now. I am putting a 6" lift I think with either 35x13.50's or 37x13:50's
So what ratio gears do I need?

Bigger axles if you wan to run 35' or 37's.. I don't wheel a lot, when I do wheel it is usually winter wheeling, and I run 33's and have 4.11"s and have no issues..

4.88, but consider some upgrades / replacement for the rear axle.

Either an entire replacement, or significant upgrades to your current axle.

There are enough reported failures on-road to make it a good idea even if not going off-road.

I'd look at Superior's stuff. The 30-spline axle kit and C-Clip eliminator specifically. If you're not wheeling, that should put you in good shape.

Easier said than done. And if you find one, you'll dearly for it.

For a complete axle replacement, a 8.8 is a an effective solution in most situations.
