Hey all I am purchasing a dana 44 out of a 1968 jeepster commando that will be a direct bolt-in for my 1984 CJ8 Scrambler. The d44 will need new gears/overhaul so I am trying to decide what gears to run!
I currently have a 2.73 gear ratio that is KILLING me with my 33's!
but may move to 35" when I need new tires.
So my real question is if 4.88 gears is too much for 33s with a 4spd tranny? or would I be better going with 4.56? even when I get 35s.
My jeep is a daily driver, and the frequent weekend warrior so the extra torque would be nice for the trail, but i really need to maintain highway drivability.
Any help at all is much appreciated!!!
