I have been following your thread and have a question. I remember reading your planning on changing gears down the road but how's has it been driving on the 37s with your current set-up, 4.10 gears and 6-speed? The reason i ask is because I have a 2 door 2012 Rubi 3.6 engine 6-speed w/4.10 gears and I'm thinking on some 35" tires without changing gears. Thanks.

It's fine, a little sluggish but it will hold all speeds on Appalachia grades in top gear unless the air conditioner is on. The performance I still have pushed a regear to the bottom of the list. I'm still hoping I can come across some ford axles so I don't have to spend any more money on these JK44s

I only occasionally need to downshift to 5th on the interstate

That is good to know. When I was doing research...I actually came across your review on them. I needed new tires then, and Discount Tire owed me some cha-ching. So they cut me a really good deal on them, but I didn't have a clue about them. I wanted the Toyos, but they were looking at 60-90 days out before they could get them. Anyways..I am really impressed with them thus far. They do great in the sand, which I was really surprised with. I think they do much, much better than my MTRs.

I use Staun deflators to air down, but I always use a gauge to make sure they didn't go lower than 11. My JK weighs a ton too....
