Quite an eye opener that 6 speed is. Yes, I'm running around 2500 RPM at 65. It was even higher with the original MT/R's that were wore down to nothing. I think they measured less than 30" diameter when I replaced them. I'm going to run 32-33" tires to calm down the RPM's a little. Maybe it will also make 1st gear a little more usable.

Hard to believe the difference in trans gearing between the auto and 6 sp. To bad the Jeep engineers didn't take a little more time in dialing in the O/D gear ratio. It sure is nice climbing a hill on the freeway with the AC on and not having to downshift.

Looks awesome. How many miles?

Does this mean you won't be flying out to pick up the rubi I found you in Newport Beach???

great looking rubi... the only really good advice I will give you is to do your research before you go crazy throwing different lifts and what not on it. It's cheaper to do it once.

the 6-speed is for the granny gear, not racing down the highway. The O/D is about the same as the old 5-speed. Enjoy!!!!
