Gears

Have 09 wrangler unlimited x. I put 2inch lift and 33 tires on and on the hwy it sucks gas and rpm is between 3000-3500. What gears should I install to correct this problem. Not sure what's in there now. Maybe 323

Is it an automatic or standard?

Horsepower is like a hot girl with STDs. You know you want to hit it but you're afraid of the consequences.

You should shift out of second gear.

There's no way in hell you're turning 3000-3500 RPM at highway speed with 31s and 3.23 axle ratio. Unless you're in second gear. Or your highway's speed limit is 150 MPH.

Dude.

Even better. There's still no way in hell he's turning that many RPM with a normally functioning transmission.

And what do bigger tires do to your RPM?

Your auto trans has a 0.69 overdrive ratio.

If you have the deepest factory ratio available for a JK (4.10), you would be doing 100 MPH at 3k RPM and 115 MPH at 3,500 RPM.

Something is not adding up.

At the bottom calculation you can figure out the conversion for metric tires to inches
